3 Ways to Solve a Passive Aggressive Husband Problem
If your man says things that are subtly insulting and hurtful but then acts like you’re the one who is overreacting, it can be crazy making.
At times you wonder how you can ever win when he mopes around and won’t say what’s wrong. If all you’re getting is the silent treatment, how do you respond to that? It’s frustrating and lonely to live that way.
And what about when he agrees to do things that you’ve asked him to do but doesn’t do them? How do you bring up that the light in the basement is still broken–even though he’s been promising to fix it for three weeks–without causing a fight?
I used to wonder myself and feel hopeless that there was anything I could do about my husband’s poor behavior. But now I have a go-to that changes everything.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 ways to solve a passive aggressive husband problem:
- I’ll share what makes him so hostile and how you can cause a miracle.
- My guest Lucy often joked that her husband was like one of her kids or one of her social work clients. She couldn’t trust him to be a responsible adult or parent because before he became a stepdad to her kids, he had abused opiates and moved into his mom’s basement. But Lucy worried that she was going to ruin her second marriage, so she did something completely different from anything she’d been doing before. Today, her relationship is peaceful, with lots of laughter and she feels desired. Also, she never worries about money. She’s going to share her best secrets for keeping the same man but getting a much better husband.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week suggests that you can fix being unhappy with one unique strategy.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
