To: Maryland: Please don’t put even the slightest pressure on your wife to be happier or put her motherly love into something else. You mean well, but anything you can do or say in that direction will basically let her know that her feelings aren’t important and that she shouldn’t be feeling the way she is. Just because you’re happy to wait doesn’t mean she will, will, or should. (Also, it’s perfectly fine to feel that way, and don’t forget that.) You can’t make other people be friends with how they react to things.
