Re: Old but telling article about men doing housework (UK)
He didn't fence. The resentment I mention causes him to not want to do anything with me or go anywhere with me. Many of you said some great advice...in essence, fake it until you make it. Is that the key? Play nice to him so he feels it's safe to poke his head back out? Again, he is passive aggressive and also a massive conflict avoider. Fight or flight response is flee, leaving me and the kids in the dust. Should I give him some "warm fuzzies", make is safer? It's hard to do when deep down I feel that's what he should have doing all along for me. Grrrr.
