In a fantasy world we'd love to believe that we would never get frustrated or angry with our mate or say things we regret, or even push or pinch them. That's fantasy and the reality of it is, sometimes things just come to a head and one can push (lightly) out of frustration. When it turns into more physical expressions of oneself (and you hurt the person physically) such as pushing (they could hit themselves on something or fall down), shoving, pinching or grabbing it's time to sit down with your spouse, grow-up and talk over your problems. If you can't seem to get along well enough to sit down and talk things over there is marriage counseling and also separation. Life is full of stress and also many frustrations and no one is 100% perfect. Money problems are the highest on the list, then sexual disfunction and of course there is excessive flirting, cheating, etc. These are problems that should be nipped at the bud as soon as possible. If you have problems raising your children seek help! Sometimes the couples both work and are tired and edgy. Learn to take at least an hour in the evening to be together (calmly) and talk over the day you both had. Soak in a hot tub (if you have one) and if you don't, go for a nice walk. Reach out and touch someone ... start seeing more of your friends and perhaps go out for dinner together or go to a movie. Stay-at-home wives are often taken for granted and I would give them a medal if I could. Staying at home with the children and keeping the house up is the hardest job one person could have (whether dad is home or mom.) Perhaps your partner needs a well deserved rest, and if you're honest with yourself you probably do too. Plan something to look forward too, even if it's just a mini vacation together (alone!) There is help to consolidate your creditors; there is help for marriage problems and there is help when it comes to raising your children, so there is no excuse why any of these problems should continue in any marriage. If a person can't afford therapy then it's time to use that common sense we were all born with. Nope, wouldn't call it abuse if there she didn't fall back and hit herself on something or fell to the floor, but it will become that if you two don't start communicating (on a calm level) and try working together on your problems. In this modern age there is so much help out there for couples. Good luck Marcy
