We can see controlling passive aggressive behaviors appearing in all parts of married life: daily life, child rearing, financial planning and sexual life. Living in a passive aggressive marriage means that couples have to solve this challenge in a creative way or risk having a sexless marriage.
In their popular Kindle book, “Escaping the Sexless Marriage: A Practical Manual to Bring Back Intimacy and Trust into a Passive Aggressive Marriage," the relationship experts at Creative Conflict Resolutions, Inc bring a wealth of information about the causes of this behavior, and explain what can be done to restore a more satisfactory connection between the partners.
The author, Dr Nora Femenia begins by studying childhood experiences, coming up with interesting conclusions in the realm of passive aggressive psychology: passive aggression may be largely dependent on the attachment model learned within the child’s relationship to his care-taker.
Finding the original cause for the behavior reduces the hostility resulting from sexual frustration, because now they can see the resistance to sexual intimacy as based on a very early mindset and not as the result of a conscious decision to isolate and frustrate their spouse in the sexual arena. Having the husband owning this fact allows him to find a way of managing his own responses better and so to redress the damage done to the relationship.
