Validation for How I Feel

I wanted to thank you for your book, The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands. I just wish I could convince my wife to read it. We have only been married for two and a half years - my 3rd and her fourth.  It has been up and down and I certainly have been a contributing factor.

We are both Christians and have been to two different counselors but nothing seems to help: she picks me apart, is condescending very judgmental and calls me names. I want so badly for this to work.  I feel like I have made adjustments and I am trying to do better every day. When I try to talk to her about my feelings and things she does that are hurtful, she turns around and makes it my fault. I am not sure where to go from here, I keep praying for things to get better every day, but have serious doubts she can change.

Again thank you for your book. It made me realize my feelings are real and not invalid.
