Follow up question from yesterday
Thu, 08-19-2010 - 4:28pm

Hello everyone,

I posted yesterday about my husband being angry with me for asking him about his recent behaviors in the past 4 months and him stating that I have taken the things he said out of context

I'm inclined to agree with tulips, when I'm angry I just need space. However since he hasn't been pushing you away then you might be having a positive impact even if he isn't reacting. Just don't lay it on too thick, or hug and kiss him in order to further your agenda or make a dent in him emotionally (as tulips said). I don't think you're making it worse by doing what you're doing, just be aware that he has to initiate contact with you when he's ready to release his anger, and you can't force that.
