Could you list examples for #2 in this article about being a submissive wife? I want to be able to keep my mouth shut and support him while he is venting but I have no idea what things to say that wouldn’t turn it into a debate. Like if he lost something important, saying it’s okay try looking for it here or there won’t help because that just causes him to get more frustrated. What are things that I could say to soothe his irritation about his lost item?
Conversations between husband and wife can definitely be sensitive. Some examples for your question include, "Oh, I'm sorry it is missing, honey." or "Oh darn, I know how important X item is to you." Just acknowledgment. A lot of men don't like hearing anything that sounds like instructions, so like you said, saying "try looking for it here" probably wouldn't help. You could say something like, "I thought I saw it in X spot." That would give him enough information without actually suggesting to him what he should do.
