She took some SL classes in order to communicate me better.She loves me so much that our communication is very important for our relationship...If he want to know what going on..give him the SL book or class brochure.
This is a common problem in "mixed marriages." ..him down and tell him that he has to learn because you guys aren't communicating.
My husband was so afraid when we were dating that I would leave him as soon as I realized the extent of his hearing loss and the possibility of 100% deafness coming back, I told him it did not matter...
I am signed up to learn SL..though he really feels it is unnecessary, he has learned to lip read so well..hearing is getting worse and I want to be prepared to help him."-DEIDRAHICKS"...surprised at the amount of resentment and anger towards hearing spouses...married 27 years..frustrations, yes, related to my not being able to hear sometimes, but NEVER because of not being able to communicate!
If she has to repeat something more than once it can be very embarrassing, especially if we are in company, because she starts to get irritated with me and I start to feel flustered, making it even more difficult for me to concentrate and understand what's being said.hurtful..have my own wife shouting irritatedly at me does not make me feel any more secure in myself..."-ROWLANDT1"married to hearing guy, he use the only communication with me in SL but sometime I use my voice...important to tell your husband how do you feel...maybe give him few options like lipreading test/Speech reading, if you said the following phrases with no voice.
See if your husband think you said I love you, Elephant Shoe, Olive Juice, island view, I'll have two..with your friend, if your family ask you what you just talk with your friend, tell them none of their business. Now I never feel left out when I eat dinner with my family..."-CILJ"wife who is hearing and she can sign very well.
