1. That line is pretty awful to get confronted with. I want to be told what my partner needs, and I want to work at getting better at giving it, but there is no way I can do what they want every time without feedback, and I know that if I want certain things from my partner, I need to ask for them. Relationships are all about work and communication and focusing on making that part function is critical. It seems like if you can just get those things working, the bumps along the road are solvable.

    Who sings that song?

    Any way, my husband often thanks me for not requiring him to be a mind-reader. We’re in our 15th year of marriage. We have tons of inside jokes, lots of little things we do for each other without saying a word, but we still, daily have to say what we think. We often have the “I’m stressed because of X, and I’m sorry if I’m taking it out on you” conversation. And less frequently, the “It really irritates me when you do Y.” conversation.
