Reply to Good communication between wife and husband

But it's ok for you both to be down in the dumps as long as you are both open about it. And praise the Lord, girl - I know what you mean! It took my husband a while to do things without asking too, and it was like a load off my shoulders! It all takes time, but it seems like you both are going in the right direction. If it helps, try to just rent a movie together to have some time when kids are asleep and just chill. And maybe plan a family outing once a week. Just to kinda shake off that down in the dumps feeling. You can even look online for "ice breakers" to help open and start a conversation. My husband and I love those!
