My wife of ten months is exceptionally attractive, loving, caring and my best friend. Our only times together were a few intimate sessions and one four-day trip.
I asked if she wanted to discuss this with our family physician or her gynecologist, but she flat-out refuses to address this, often by giggling and asserting: I raised this with my doctor, who said it could potentially be an indicator of a serious intestinal issue.
How can I get my wife to address this from both a medical and common courtesy perspective?
Ignoring the turnoff odour and your annoyance, along with her refusal to check for health problems, indicate both insensitivity to you and immature denial. None of this is good for your marriage, which deserves more than a giggling brush-off.
Excessive gas can signal easily manageable causes, such as lactose intolerance and specific reactions to some foods e. The sooner she sees a doctor and rules out, treats or manages these causes, the sooner this will no longer be a divisive issue.
Do the research with her. He cared for me, he said.
I knew I had to move on or be miserable. From there, the future will unfold with more likelihood of your finding what you want and need in a partner.
