Re: Patching things up dont work... Need advice
Work on the things you want to improve about yourself, not what she wants. At the end of the day, the only person you have in the end is truly yourself.
Perhaps she has a lot of anger and resentment issues, and she is punishing you for it.
BTW, it is not happy wife, happy life. If the husband is miserable, it is still only one happy person. A good relationship is where both try and meet the needs of each other, making both happy if successful.
Sure, you made mistakes and bad choices in the past, but that does not mean you do not matter as well as much as she does. She has a right to her anger for past transgression, but over time, she has to move on, or she will keep the marriage in a terrible loop. Your not the only one who needs improvement. You need boundaries, if not, she will never respect you, and how can a relationship operate on no respect?
