I didn't cause the economy to be the way that it is. I didn't request to be laid off from my job. I didn't make his relative die right before thanksgiving and cause the family to change their thanksgiving plans to accomodate the funeral. I can't control the silliness that comes out of other peoples' mouths... but yet and still my husband is pissy with me. I am the one in his corner... but I have to deal with the attitude. I am trying to stay positive, but it's hard....

I am sorry that you are going through a ruff patch. But one thing you should be grateful for is that he is letting his emotions out with you. I know it sounds stupid but you are his outlet. And it sucks at times I know because I hear it from my husband all the time. About how he hates his job and nothing works for him. But be glad that he can tell you these things. I understand how hard it is and I have had to tell him that sometimes I just can listen to his problems at the moment because I have had a hard day too and I just don't want anything else on my plate.

Hi qmeyers. I would venture to say that deep down your husband isn't really mad AT you. Just mad at everything that is going on. And since men aren't necessarily emotional creatures they don't handle emotions well, especially when they are in "over-load". It happens so often between married people. We use each other as sounding boards and vent machines. And since men and women can take the same situation and handle it in 2 completely different ways, we tend to get mad at the other claiming, "they don't understand me" or "why aren't they feeling what I'm feeling". This is indeed a very trying time for everyone and marriages are not exempt. Keep doing what you're doing and "trying" to stay positive. I'm sure when the storm cloud blows over, things will ease up a bit between the 2 of us. Many blessings, and sorry for your losses! Brooke

i know what you mean. my hubby lost his job in august and well, life has been hard. he hasnt been angry, just depressed because he has too much experience for some jobs or has been out of the loop to long for others.
