Our expert says:
No, you don't seem to be over-thinking. As you will have noticed, maturity doesn't automatically bring wisdom, especially in the case of some people we know. And though with time we have usually accumulated some skills in negotiating and problem-solving, these usually don't apply to all difficulties. It's a bit like putting together a tool-kit or first aid box : excellent policy, but we so run into problems for which we don't have the right tool at hand.
This is where it can be very useful to a couples counselor for a few sessions ; ( he may find the idea congenial if he thinks of it as a way of sorting out some of the problems he experiences within your behaviour !)
You may be able to enhance your shared understanding of each other, and joint problem solving and preventing skills.
