Men Express Themselves
If they try to defend themselves, you shut them down, saying that you do not want to hear their excuses. You remind them that you could have and would have succeeeded. And, that you probably should have simply done the thing yourself. You might even ask aloud why you even bothered to trust that they would have pulled-off the task.
If they simply keep quiet and sheepishly accept your tongue lashing, you remind them of what a wimp they are. You ask where their backbone is. You say that you cannot believe you married someone who was so incompetent.
If they walk away from you, you order them to return. Or, you remind them that 'running away' is how they always deal with conflict.
And, let's not forget that you often do the above in front of or within earshot of your children.
Come bedtime, you will undoubtedly not be in the mood for intimacy. Or, if you are, you will find a way to put them down in that arena, as well.
Try acting like a loving partner, instead of like a disapproving parent.
