Being in a relationship with someone for over 15 years is not always rosy and peachy. I think the root of the problem, at least for me, is the high expectations and lack of communication.
It's one of the biggest clichès that men need to talk more about their feelings. I think in our relationship it's the other way round. I've learned my lessons a long time ago and talking about my feelings and emotions is quite natural to me. I think that in this area my wife has a lot of room for improvement. Or maybe it's just that she doesn't feel comfortable or safe enough around me to talk about her emotions, dreams and expectations. I don't know.
