Socially Challenged

Before my husband and I got married, we had to take a pre-marital counseling session with a few others couples. Before I even opened my mouth, the counselor told us that I was the active social part of the couple and would over shadow my overly quiet husband. She also said that I would be the one who spoke and didn't hold back. She analyzed me and it actually upset me. However, two years later I have realized that it is the truth. And sometimes it is really hard. I socialize a lot more, and am more apt to open my mouth, where he does not say a word. Also, people who don't know us, think that hes stuck up just because hes shy. I know its how he is, and he will not talk until he knows someone. He goes in a total shell around new people, and has a hard time making friends. Hes social around me, but so reserved and backward around anyone else....I dont want to change him, but is there anything I could help him do to be more social??? It is hard to get him to say two words, he won't even talk to me around new people!
