The husband is always looking to fix the issue.
Let's see how.
Wife is silent. Husband can't figure out why.
Husband: What happened baby
Husband (on phone two hours later): I've asked her about 50 times till now but she's not saying what's upset her.
The husband could reflect for a moment on what might have upset her - morning conversation, an incident that happened at dinner, did he forget to do something she asked, oh my god, did he forget her mom's birthday.
Instead of asking, he can take the step to find out.
But he won't, that's their nature. The husband is always looking to fix the issue. Not understand it.
