Our expert says:
Its not just husbands who often show this failing ! To find it annoying nios of course highly natural. You hint, perhaps acidentally, at an important aspect of the problem - you say you were not brought up like this. Probably, he was. Some families share this clumsiness about admitting error and apologising. Sometimes there were stern parents who punished excessively any possible failing.
So, to become annoyed is natural. Maybe you are being a bit unreasonable in expecting him to behave naturally in the way you have learned to do, and to change the habits of a lifetime, and to apologise according to a script you lay down. I suspect that the SMS apology was a very important step and difficult for him to take. Respond well to this, and you will encourage him to say sorry, in one way or another, more often and more easily. Respond frostily, and you will confirm his trained assumption that its dangerous and has unpleasant results, to apologise
