From The Generous Wife archive:
Confide in your husband.*
Yup, that’s it. You see when you open your heart to him, it softens him toward you. Tell him your secrets, your dreams, your hopes. (Yes, he may try to “fix things” (it’s a guy thing), but encourage him to listen and thank him for caring enough to offer solutions.) And, if he should share some of his secrets, dreams and hopes (because like tends to call to like), treat his confidences with care. Empathize and encourage. Confidences are precious gifts.
*(If your husband is not safe, please do not confide in him. Seek safety and appropriate help.)
