post on learning to listen in marriage. This is an area where we (probably more so me) have much to learn still. Two days ago, we got into another fight regarding the lack of listening. Jim felt like I was putting greater priority on getting chores done, instead of being there for him emotionally when he needed me. Looking back I know I was wrong and handled the situation pretty poorly. I out doing chores and sticking to my schedule above his need for emotional intimacy, and it blew up in my face. It is just hard for me to balance a desire to have structure/balance/a good routine with keeping an orderly home and being there for him. That probably sounds awful, I get it. I do want want to be a good wife and be there for my husband, I really do! But it drives me nuts that there is no structure for keeping the house maintained, and being that I am married to a man who was not taught these things and had parents who did everything for him growing up. It's just hard for me to let go of the control sometimes, and re-adjust my plans...
Would love to have ya!!
