Walking On Eggshells In Your Own Home

In anger-based marriage, there is constant tension in the home. Partners often feel they can’t “be themselves” when they are with each other resulting in lack of closeness and intimacy. Often, partners talk to each other with lack of respect or just withdraw from each other to avoid confrontation and conflict. The atmosphere is frequently one of irritation. Partners stop looking at each other with love or talking to each other in a tone that indicates caring.
