I totally feel for this guy because i AM this guy ... because my father IS this guy. you grow up not feeling wanted and worthy and loveable because of a parent, or maybe both, who was incapable of loving you the right way. for me, it hit home on two occasions. one, the lady was describing this vicious where the man would try to control, control, control, controoooooool and when he saw he how things were unfolding not according to his wishes, he would totally abandon the family and everything and become this reclusive, apathetic guy. there was no middle ground. two, and it hit most hard, was when the lady said how much should I put up with because I am afraid of loss. that just hurt me man.

knowing and understanding are different. for a much a he assets his knowledge you'd think he'd understand a bit more. he needs to cry a lot more.

This man will not change. He is too self-absorbed and unappreciative of his wife. He should consider individual therapy to process these issues, and his wife should consider therapy to process the many losses she has experienced. I wish the wife and her children all the best.
