Feeling suffocated in a relationship due to clinginess can be challenging. It's crucial to approach this with empathy and understanding. Start by having an open conversation with your wife about how her behavior makes you feel. Use "I" statements to express your feelings without blame. Be specific about the behaviors that make you feel smothered. Encourage her to express her own feelings and concerns as well. Try to understand the root cause of her clinginess; it could stem from insecurity, past experiences, or unmet needs. Set boundaries together that respect both of your needs for independence and closeness. Encourage her to cultivate her own hobbies and interests, and make sure to prioritize quality time together. Consider couples therapy to navigate this issue together and strengthen your relationship.
