Full of thankfulness today. My husband is an invalid. Yesterday his hospital bed made funny noise, quit working and looked bent.
Supplier was able to respond in one day and it turned out to be only a bolt that had fallen out. He replaced it and checked all the other bolts in a few minutes. I was afraid it was going to be a huge deal and that they would try to bill me even though it is new bed.
Praise the Lord for being so good to us. He truly blessed us according to His riches in Glory
So, hello everyone. Sharing something personal, so here goes...
I've been married 18 months and I am realising that I'm married to a man who lacks communication skills. Don't know how other husbands are... But he doesn't talk much with me even after I've requested that I need him to talk with me more (and I plan dates etc to make this happen but still even there he'll be silent). He makes no effort with things that make me happy like he's never bought me flowers, never randomly text or called, hasn't initiated quality time and dates etc. He has stopped initiating and making effort. I feel he's going through something and I ask him if anything is bothering him but he says no.
I know there's some tension due to a work issue but we are managing well.
What advice can you give?
PS... we are Christians and go to church.

The past few days have been a bunch of small things that can easily have been fixed. my husband refuses to talk about things and it is like pulling teeth to get any of his feelings out of him. I told him i need him to communicate things with me so we can both work on things together. he thinks im trying to change him and that's just "how he is." which i explained is not true. it's a behavior things. how can we work on this? he went to bed still angry at me. I know in the Bible it talks about if someone becomes angry do not go to bed angry. So it really hurt me that he did. He's told me before that he just likes to be angry sometimes and he can't just get over it even after the problem has been dealt with. Please pray for our relationship. We just got married this December.
