Your husband is not a child. He’s an adult.
I know sometimes it’s hard not to interrupt, correct, or teach. I’m tempted by the same “I know better” attitude.
When Paul gets the details wrong in telling a story, when I think he’s going about a project “wrong,” or when I’m unhappy about something he’s said or done, it’s easy enough to talk down to him. But, really, he’s an adult (and my sweetie) so he needs to be treated as an adult.
Being an adult is hard work anyway. Our guys need us to respect their adult status and give them room to grow and learn.
I don’t think I’d have been in such a hurry to reach adulthood if I’d known the whole thing was going to be ad-libbed. Bill Watterson
