my husband is curt, grumpy and dissatisfied most of the time. Even the people around him (like our friends) note how unhappy he seems to be. I want the old him back and I don't know how to get it.
I have tried (admittedly only a few times) to hug him, or be close to him (snuggling on the couch or in the bed) but he just turns away. We are currently in between places and in the 23 foot RV with the 3 kids for several more weeks. It would be so much nicer if I didn't feel like I had to give him a 5 foot berth all the time.
What should I do when he turns away? Should I just keep trying? How often should I try? Should I wait until we move? Life HAS been over the top tough to us the last couple of years and I totally understand why he feels stressed etc, but turning on each other certainly isn't the answer right? I am so sad.
