nice post freedycat
even i feel and agree what ever points u mentioned are right.
Nice article... thanks for sharing..
Since I gave toooo much credit to my DH, I have to tell what caused the commotion in our life, as well.
My DH has very strong personality, controlling/manipulative person. First few years were very tough on me...cried a lot. I felt that he was mocking of my shortcomings and bullying me. I used to follow him every where, too dependent on him. Eventually, gained more confidence in myself, learned to be more independent from him. Viola, it worked. He stepped back from bullying, and became more 'attached' to me. It is the worst, reached to the point of I 'can't breathe' any more. I am still trying to hide/hint/avoid/run away from him, at times. He realized that I like to spend alone time and if I am in my office room means, quite time for me.
I have a few trump cards, I use now and then (Heh, I did grow up along the way to be manipulative, too)
1) My parents (have a fall back plan)
2) Silent treatment (works, shows that I am angry/upset with him)
3) Emotional independence (learned discipline, it helps me not to get trapped, as I used to be with him)
4) Flow of 'green' (family inheritance/separate bank account)
5) My baby boy (his version, dad is always wrong)
No solution --
-- From the beginning, DH wouldn't send me alone to my parents house (a tag on, follows me around).
-- Can't hide from him too long (sweet torture)
Over the years, I see him more vulnerable/sensitive and dependent on me.....ageing factor? too much of expectation from me? or fear of being left alone? or empty nester syndrome? or simply bored.
Lately, he is working with friends to retire in the same place/building an array of houses together. Hopefully, he will find more play mates of his own league.
I feel that one point is missing. The couple should respect each other's boundaries. Where boundaries are being broken, there is no chance of a good marriage.
Thanks everyone for your liking of the article. Hope you enjoyed reading it, as much as I did.
These sort of articles are just a check point to the 'marriage track' and help us to understand, how the rest of world operates. A refreshing point, other wise rather boring routine life.
