[COLOR=Navy]Hello chrisinohio- :wave:

I'm very sorry about your mother. This has to be very difficult for you and your family. I hope that you find comfort in prayer and love.

Regarding your question about snapping at your wife, I think I know what you are talking about. My husband has done this to me and I know that he doesn't even realize he is doing it. Often times, I will ask him a simple question, and the question may not be of "importance" to him, he will snap with his answer, almost as if it is bothersome to him that I asked. I "call" him on his behavior and most times he will say he is sorry he didn't mean to snap, but sometimes he can take his beahavior to a cocky level. That is when I get upset, and usually reduce myself to tears. :rolleyes:

Personally I feel that everyone is responsible for their own feelings and actions. I think that sometimes when I cry- it is to get my husband's attention or make him feel bad. Now that isn't ALL the time, but sometimes it is. My husband hates it when I leave. I haven't done that in a while. He gets very upset with me. I think as adults, leaving just isn't an answer.

I guess I'm just trying to shed some light on this situation, I really don't feel like I'm offering much advice. Just remember your wife may try to make you believe that you "make her cry" or reduce her to tears, but in all actuality she is responsible for her reactions to you being snappy. Just as I'm responsible for my emotions and everyone else in this world is responsible for theirs. Most people tend to blame others.

On the other side of this, I find myself "snapping" at my husband pretty often. I am a very high strung person (take after my father) and my husband very laid back. He doesn't get as "excited" or "angry" about things, as fast or easily as I do. I snap at alot of little things. I do recognize it, but it is very hard to change. You not only have to recognize this now, but you have to also do it in the moment...which is very hard to do.

Well I don't want to keep rambling... :yawn: I hope I shedded a little light on this....for you.[/COLOR]
