How To Deal With A Passive-Aggressive Partner

Being married to a passive-aggressive person can be a highly frustrating experience, especially if you don’t know what you are dealing with. You may just know that your partner sabotages things, they have a million excuses for why they broke a promise or commitment, and they resent your pointing out their deficiencies or irresponsible behaviors.

They seem overly sensitive to actual criticism or what they perceive as criticism. They often do not take leadership roles in the family but then get upset when told what to do what must be done.

They rarely are clear or direct about what they want and why it is important to them.

You may feel as if you are raising another child in your home instead of partnering with another adult to share life’s struggles and demands.
