Re: Men having issues with their Mother
I have a lot of experience with this. My H has a terrible relationship with his mom, and brother, and it has impacted our relationship. I didn't realize how much so until recently.
Aside from the obvious communication barriers there is also the emotional withdrawal from the marriage. He puts so much energy and thought into the fights, and in solving the fights with his mom, that he doesnt spend much energy on the marriage. I didnt realize this until recently. If he and I get in a fight then it is overwhelming for him since all of these other issues with his family are draining him emotionally. He cant handle it and it makes him really depressed.
