Q: My husband is a Daddy’s boy and confides in him more than me, what can I do?”
Gary: There’s nothing wrong with having a good relationship with your father. Often, if you’ve had a good relationship with your father, you will often turn to your father for advice in your marriage. There is nothing unhealthy about that. But what I do hear this wife saying is, “I feel like he’s not open to my opinion; he’s not asking me for my input; he’s relying more on his father than he’s relying on me.” That of course is not a healthy thing in a relationship. First verbalize it to him, let him know how you’re feeling. But also affirm him, that he’s man enough to reach out for advice and not try to make decisions simply with his own wisdom.
