Newlywed husband needs help.
Ok, my wife and I are newlyweds and we are having some issues. We have both lied to each other, and for stupid reasons. There has been no cheating. Knowing that we both have issues and are trying to work on them, here is my issue. My wife reads a message board about divorce, marriage, in-laws, custody, etc... To give you an idea what it's like, she calls it her "drama board". In the probably 60 stories she has told me from the board, there has been 1 positive story she told me. It has been all negative relationships with crazy in-laws or crappy cheating husbands. I've told her I dislike the site because it is extremely negative. I personally feel that if we are trying to fix our struggling marriage, reading story after story and spending probably 1.5-2 hours a day reading it, all that negatively hurt us.
Lately I've been told I'm "gas lighting" (had to look that up) or passive aggressive. I had burped and blew it on her (yes it's gross, but we goof off a lot) and she told me it was gross and gave me a light shoulder slap. I said it's no different than her crop dusting me. Said it with a smile and CLEARLY joking. She walked off saying I was gas lighting.
So, here is my question(s). Knowing we both have issues, am I being unreasonable in asking her to cut back the reading on the site? I don't think I am, but I also know looking from the outside in, you guys might have a different opinion. And am I gas lighting? I thought I was just joking with my wife?
And no, it isn't this site she reads, lol.
