What to do!?

My H and I were just married this past July and have a 3 year old daughter.

So how much of these things did you know about your now-husband before you married him?

Do you tell him what you want (flowers, hugs when you cry)? Men, especially ones who are not emotional by nature, need to be told specifically what you want.

This doesn't sound like a pity party but it does sound like you married the wrong man.

Sounds like he may have a video game addiction if he puts your 3 yr. old daughter in her room and basically IGNORES her all evening while he plays video games. And the yelling and throwing things is probably very frightening for a 3 yr. old girl to see. I think he may need some kind of anger management counseling if he can't control his temper.

Welcome to the board, Amberg67603 ~

I understand wanting more romance and attention, more of a partnership (help around the house) and more care with your daughter, both by giving her attention and in conducting himself as a parent in regard to language.
