1. Such wise words, today, Margaret, thanks. I do think it’s so easy to criticize a partner. M’s driving is awful so I do criticize that, as well! 😉

  2. This was such a useful post. My husband is very sensitive when I speak to him sharply, and has been known to sulk for 2-3 days, so this phrase really hit home…..”Their research suggests that men feel actual failure when they hear
    disappointment from their partner, and then withdraw. When that occurs,
    women feel more lonely, and become more frustrated and disappointed.”
    Although that seldom happens, I hate it when it does, so I’m very careful not to snap at him!
