Husband is Not Talking To Me
Hi Doc & everyone... My husband and i have been married for 5 months & we'd been together for 4 years before we got married. Last night we had a major arguement, i was angry and said something which i desperately with i had not. An hour or so later i tried to apologise and he said he forgives me but he never said a word the whole night and even today he's still giving me the silent treatment. I've literally begged him for forgiveness three times and he keeps saying its fine and i can see its not. I don't know what to do now; i don't want to stoop lower than i already have but i really love him and did not mean to hurt him. He also said some nasty things but i did not hold these against him - it was all in the heat of the moment... What do i do???

Maybe he's indicating that he forgives you, but he's still feeling hurt. Give him more time to recover, and remain open to discussion about this. But to keep on apologising, once you've made it clear that you genuinely regret what was sais, somehow risks making it seem even more or a major issue than it already is
