Hi all, i was with my 2nd husband for 30 years. I loved him very much, still do. But he had his quirks. One of many really bugged me and to this day i still dont understand why he did it. I would like to ask you guys for your insight on it. I met him in the early 80’s and from day 1 he wouldn’t say my name unless i asked him to. He had been abused physically by his father. He and his mom were beaten frequently, and he never saw his dad on the weekend because he was out acting like he was single. I felt that if he didnt say my name he could be talking to Gladys down the street when he was telling me he loved me. Was it as simple as a fear of intimacy? What do you think?
