Practice asking for it. Imagine some win-win solutions where you are able to enjoy your preferences. Other relationship goals warrant the attachment marriage counseling model, where you and your beloved just hold each other when trouble strikes; believing that most upsets in a marriage come from deep-seated traumas from not being held and loved enough.
