What do you do when your wife bad-mouths your parents?

My wife continually bad-mouths my parents who we hardly ever see and live 500 miles away. Needless to say I don't feel very close to my wife when she does this. How can I get her to stop?

Smothering a Relationship

Any relationship should support equity between partners: give and take. A man told me in therapy the other day that he was bad because he was too good. He has a bad habit of doing too much in a relationship. Consequently, his relationships end because the women feel smothered and eventually pull away. What does he do that ultimately causes every relationship to terminate? [ 314 more words ]

Lisa, walking into the bedroom, says "Jeff, did you know the light bulb is burned out in the bathroom?" Jeff raises his eyebrows and says, "Oh?"
