My wife doesn't understand that I need to work long hours to support our family, yet she complains about not having enough money.

Answered by: Brett Williams

I feel alienated from my spouse. He spends more time with his family than he does with me. I feel like I am married to his whole family. Any ideas on how I can get my spouse back?

My spouse wants to know the details about my affair. Our counselor has not said either way. My wife feels that we aren't getting anywhere in therapy. She says that she can't move forward unless I answer her questions. Do you think it is important to talk about the details of the affair?

My spouse had an ongoing affair for six months with a co-worker. Since then he has cut all ties with her. She ended up transferring to a new job and he has continually told me that they don't interact anymore. He is showing me his phone records and even tells me to look at them if I think that will help me. In truth, he is doing a lot of positive things. We have talked more recently than we did in many months. I feel like we are heading in the right direction. However, I am having a very difficult time being positive with him. He really is trying, but I don't want to tell him that because I am afraid he will stop doing what he has been doing. Does that make sense? Do you think I should give him more positive feedback?

My life is good and I have a nice family, but I feel like I just don't have a lot of happiness in my life right now. Things are so busy and I am not sure what I can do in the limited amount of time that I have in the day to bring joy into my life. Are there simple things that I can do alone or with my family to help us all feel happier?

My spouse is addicted to prescription medication. His personality has changing. I don't know what to do or say to him. I am afraid he is going to lose his job. Is there something I can do to help him?

My husband and I have been arguing all the time for the past few months, it's seems that we can't agree on anything and everything gets on our nerves. We have been married for almost 2 years and we have a little girl that will be turning a year old next week and we just purchase a new house. I don't know what else to do but I can't continue like this. Thanks

My wife and I are are becoming a little stale in our relationship. You know everyday life stuff. Is there something we can do special to rekindle what we had?

Answered by: Brett Williams

My spouse asked a question on this site yesterday about our relationship. He said that he feels hopeless. I too am feeling hopeless. I listened to the answer your expert provided and realized that we are both to blame. He said, "I am starting to lose hope that we can resolve our differences," to which I agree. We are both losing hope. What he didn't say is that he has been staying at work rather than coming home. He makes me feel like he doesn't care when he does that. I get the idea that he feels like I don't love him, but I don't think he loves me. I am glad that he reached out first, I wondered if he really cared. I often wonder why this is so hard. Why we are both acting so immature? We really do argue about stupid things, just like me husband indicated. My question is this, "How can I get over the fact that I don't feel like he cares anymore?" I also need to learn how to stop re-acting to his lack of attention. I know I get angry which pushes him away, but I don't know how else to respond when he acts like he doesn't care. Thanks in advance to your team of great experts at MyExpertSolution.

My wife and I have been arguing and fighting over seemingly stupid things. I am tired of all of the fighting but don't know how to stop the battle. I don't feel like my wife cares about me anymore and I am starting to lose hope that we can resolve our differences. Is it possible to save our marriage?
