May be few of you had came to a part of my trouple. Communication and forgiveness. We are married 7 years ago. Since I lost a baby I was not able to forget the loss.
and I guess this was the begining....
I struggled in communication with my husband.. different language (I speak his language, english), differnt countries, different color, different everything..just mention it.
I love him and please don't ask me why, all what I know and what makes me go on is my feelings.. though I asked for a divorce many times.. me? .. none
I can't understand him and he can't too.. my origin is an arab and he's a brit.. I need some counciling or explaination how the british mind works in marriage.
If you find my question rude, please forgive me. But if you can please make it simple 9language wise)

Re: Communication

Dear Hanan

You have been through a lot, adjusting to a new culture and language and losing your baby. It may have been difficult for your husband to know what support you needed.

It is difficult to give an answer for all British men about how their minds work. There are characteristics which are about being a British man and then there are the individual person's own characteristics.

There are things you could do together to help you understand what you expect of marriage and what you bring to marriage from your families and home countries. You can also develop communication.

You could try a Marriage Encounter weekend or Enrich.

There are also some articles here that might help.

Why not have a look and see if any of these help. Do come back and ask any more questions.

Best wishes
