I've been married for 3 months and my marriage is on the rocks already. My husband acts like a child. He gets mad at every little thing i say and do and he pouts like a baby. This is very annoying. He's often disrespectful, for example today. We were going to church and he wanted me to park between two crates on the parking lot. I felt uncomfortable so i parked in another space. He had a fit and folded his arms and pouted like a child. I let him know he was acting like a spoiled brat and it's nerve wrecking. He felt insulted and dashed out of the car and left me to go to church on my own. So i left him there. I know it was wrong but this type of behavior goes on every other day. I am up to my neck with this behavior and I'm tired of it. Another example was, 0430 am, I'm going to his sister's house to exercise and found i had a flat tire. I went to him and he suggested i ride to the gas station (by myself) and put air in it until i can get it fixed. Because I was angry for his lack of emotion, he left me to take care of the problem myself. I have many stories. It's like being married to a child. Am i overreacting or what? I need much needed advice.
You may think I'm kidding, but I'm not. I suggest that the next time your hubby takes a shower, be ready with your hairbrush, when he gets out. Grab him by the earlobe, and sit down on the bed, and put him across your lap. Pick up the hairbrush, from your night-table (placed, within reach), and proceed to give him the spanking of his life. That'll give him something to pout about, everytime he sits down! ;-D
Sounds like your marriage isn’t starting like you planned. Was this behavior present prior to marriage? Has it gotten worst? Being in a married is a relationship that must be nutured and has to be worked at. Communication is often the key in building that relationship. Did something change after marriage, job change or new place? One way communication is hard, have you tried writing him a note about how you are feeling? You mention church, have you talked to the pastor about your concerns? Here is a web site that might give you some direction. http://www.focusonthefamily.com/marriage/communication-and-conflict/reconnect-through-meaningful-conversation.
Hoping that peace will soon be with you.
