Are Irishmen stubborn too? Because I'm 25 years married to a maddeningly stubborn one.
I absolutely concur with advice of the Judith and Elaine. I assume your husband knows your feelings on the subject and your concern has not yet made him change so chances are he probably won't change until he is good and ready. Its hard, but you can't take your spouses troubles onto yourself, because all that does is make you feel stressed so that you both end up feeling bad. Sometimes the best way of helping is by being in a good/positive mood around them and not being sucked into their gloom.
UC is hard on the entire family, no doubt about it. I hope your husband starts to feel better soon. He is lucky that you want to improve his quality of life!
