Silent Treatment

I don't know why but this whole moving houses thing is killing my marriage. I have no idea why but we're fighting about everything.

Everyone always told me that we'd fight 1) while planning our wedding, that didn't happen, 2) while I'm pregnant, not there yet, & 3) while raising our children, not there yet either. But, never in the list of things is there YOU'LL FIGHT WHILE MOVING. I really wish someone would have warned me.

I feel overwhelmed and he feels like he has no say in anything. I know that I'm not the best listener and I usually always make decisions
on my own but I really do try to include him most of the time. Maybe it's me. I'm totally being a bad wife & friend. I need to chill...

Ok. I just needed to vent. I'm sort of better now :)


  1. Oh man, I hate moving. I can understand the tension. I think that's a typical 'guy thing' to feel left out of decision making--they hate that. My husband says that too.

  2. Oh, gosh, I remember when we moved from TX to NJ - it was hell in many ways. I feel for you. Moving is stressful!

    Just take a deep breath and try to remember you are in it together :O)

  3. People always fight in stressful situations. My boyfriend and I have moved together 6 times so far. We're only NOW starting to get the hang of it : )

  4. We're in the midst of moving too, so far so good, a little tension but nothing serious yet. Fingers crossed.

  5. Moving is one of the most stressful things that can happen to a marriage...
    Birth, death, illness, finances...these are also stresses that can make or break a marriage.
    It will pass and your marriage will be stronger than ever. Mr.Man and I have been through all of the above and our love and commitment to each other has kept us together. It will be the same for you.
    Good luck with the move!
