Driven to drink

Dear Aunty Lisa

I am a married man who has been with my wife for three years now. She has a problem of being moody and she gets angry at anything. After she is angry she would refuse to be intimate with me. It makes me very angry and I don’t know how best to deal with my frustrations. I have recently resorted to drinking beer, which l always regret when l’m sober. I don’t want to end up waking up in some stranger’s bed after being drunk. Please help on what I can do to end this madness. – Josphat

Dear Josphat

You are right to know that what you have resorted to is not the best solution to your problem. You need to communicate with your wife heart to heart. You need to know what it is exactly that you are doing wrong that makes her angry. It may not necessarily something that you are causing. Stress may cause someone to be moody and uptight. Or it could be hormones or some medication that she may be taken. Even family planning tablets can cause severe mood swings in some women.

Try and reach out to her heart and find out exactly what is going on with her. It is not easy for someone to smile and be intimate to his or her lover pretending everything is all right. But it becomes a serious problem when that happens every day. The solution is for both of you to talk honestly and openly. Explain to her gently how badly her behaviour is affecting you. Communication is the key. – Aunty Lisa
