Also, should I try to talk to my boyfriend about it? He doesn't like talking about his parents, but to me it feels like a big part of him that I know nothing about.
His emotions about his parents have caused problems between us a few times because when his parents fight, he retracts into himself and won't talk to anyone, so I thought he was trying to get rid of me. He won't tell me when things are going badly for him, but all I want is to be there for him. I know I can't fix anything or give him advice, but I feel so out of the loop as it is.
What do you all think?
