    My problem is this my husband does not stand up for me even when Im in the right. suggestions?

    I have been married for ten years now and for five of those I was very sick. Now that I am better my husband does not say anything when others start a fight with me or yell at me or in any conflict situation. I have talked to him in a rational tone and tried to work this out. He says he will change but never does . What do I do now?

    if he doesnt stick up for you then that means he thinks more of other people then you

    I had a husband like that....note HAD. I traded up for a man who respects me, defends me, and is on my side no matter what. Everyone deserves for their partner to be their best friend, confidant, and defender.

    I got into a conversation about this some time ago. I feel that my husband should defend me in a conflict, but there are many who feel that a man sticking up for a woman weakens her, and that she should be left alone to fight her own battles, because, heck, what woman needs a man?

    Chances are that his attitude is that you can do it yourself. If you've talked to him though, it's very possible that he has a problem with conflict.
