    Salam Dr. Banani,
    thanks for your talk. I wonder though about I statements. When people use them on me, I really find them just another form of passive aggression: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/cui-bono/201211/are-i-statements-better-you-statements

    as-salam alaykum Dr. Banani; are you sure that I-statements are the answer? often they can just make things worse, in my experience. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/cui-bono/201211/are-i-statements-better-you-statements

    MashaAllah your wise words amazed me Dr. Haleh Banani. I’m not married yet but will definitely keep them in my mind and my sisters can also be benefited by your words. May Allah bless you, you’re doing a great job.

    Asalam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakahtuh. I think the I statement is meant in a different way. If trying to explain something that bothers you in a relationship you don’t want to hear “You make me feel like a loser”. You want to say it a bit like “When you say these things I feel like a loser/it makes me feel like a loser”. It’s meant to take the blame away. I statements in a CV or a MM piece come across as arrogant, true. But not if used wisely in a communication situation

    Good advice except for one thing…some relationships are so engrained with years of pain and suffering not even therapy is going to save it. In fact the only hope is that both will realize the only way to salvage the family is to end the marriage. Sad but true.

    An easy way to improve marriage – women should stop taunting, nagging, and trying to control their husbands. A man today has been reduced to an ATM, who must fulfill all the wishes of his wife, and then have her constantly complain, showing ingratitude after spending his money on shopping, clothes, sandals, constant visits to boutiques and beauty saloons, driving his car, living in his house, etc. Today, men are not seen as human beings, only women’s drivers, porters, and ATMs.
