Well, if it benefits both of your lives then I guess it's for the best.
But I have to say, so much for "in sickness and in health"...
Did you not know these things (personality disorder) before you married her? I just feel sorry for any child that has to watch their parents split.
By mentioning the article to her, you were in a way passively accusing her of doing something wrong. NOT fully accusing! Maybe not even intentionally
on your part. But saying that to her implies that the responsibility is HERS alone to control the baby and TV. Perhaps she was thinking in her head
something like, "You have just as much ability as I to turn off the TV or stop the baby from watching TV."
If it went how you said it did, then it does kind of come off as you saying she is irresponsible, in a way. It would have been better to say something
like "I just read this article about babies and TV and it really made me want to make sure our baby watches less of it, what do you think (insert
wife's name here)?" That would have allowed room for her opinion, instead you kind of assumed and directed her to a conclusion. Women don't like
feeling like they aren't allowed an opinion in a matter.
I think the most important part about marriage is CIVIL discussion. No communication and the marriage goes down the toilet.
