Dear Carolyn: I am struggling to balance my husbands relationship with my family. My family adores him and wants to spend time with him. He acts fine with them, but is grumpy and angry with me.
My husband is an introvert. I respect his needs and only ask him to attend a few family events a year. I also limit family visits to my house.
But this weekend, he told me that if it was up to him, he would never see my family again. He said he was willing to spend time with them because he loves me, but it makes him miserable and so he may be upset.
