My wife treats me like a child

Dear Teeshia, I'm in a marriage where I consistently feel like I am wrong. I know that there are some things that I could do better. Please tell me how to deal with the temperament of someone who feels their way is the right way all the time? - Wrong Husband

Dear Wrong Husband, Dealing with someone that feels their way is always right is a difficult situation. You are constantly feeling like what you do is never acceptable and you are constantly being scolded. Your marriage feels like you are a child instead of a spouse. The first thing you need to do is speak to your spouse and let her know how you feel. The best time to speak about this issue is when both of you have enough time and there is no anger. Explain to your spouse how you feel, but make sure you also listen to why she feels she has the right to treat you this way. This may provide insight to her mode of thinking. I am not saying that it is right or that she is justified, but she may feel she has a valid reason and you all need to get to the bottom of this situation. There may be a communication issue. She may not know how to properly get her point across to you. She may not even know that you feel this way. You stated that you know there are some things you could do better. I am not sure what you could do better, but maybe those instances are where this temperament stems from. If having this conversation alone is not an option, please seek a counselor or spiritual leader in assisting you all with communication techniques. Good luck.
