My husband doesn’t like me. That’s a horrible thing for any woman to feel, let alone say out loud. When you begin to feel that the man you married dislikes you, it makes you question the state and future of your relationship. How can you possibly continue to live with someone who hates you? How can you leave him when you still love him despite what he feels? It’s a heartbreaking position to be in. If you want to reclaim the love you two once shared, don’t give up. You can change the dynamic of your marriage and make your husband love you more than he ever has before.
It’s very easy to misinterpret what your husband feels for you. It’s not as though most men are an open book when it comes to sharing their emotions with their wives. They clam right up and we’re left to our own devices to muddle through what all those signals he’s giving us mean. That’s why you can’t be too quick to jump to the conclusion that your husband doesn’t like you. You may be confusing his anxiety about another matter or his unhappiness with life in general for dislike for you.
In order to know what he really feels, it’s a good idea to try a little experiment. For the next couple of weeks you’re going to treat your husband differently. You’re going to treat him the exact way you wish he was treating you. Push aside any feelings of how unbalanced your marriage is at the moment and bury all that resentment you feel. For now, you’re going to become the mirror image of the person you wish he was. Pamper him, tell him you love him constantly and be as compassionate and kind as you can be. In many cases, when a woman shifts the dynamic of the marriage like this, her husband will follow suit. He may be hiding his feelings beneath the surface only because he’s unsure of how you feel as well.
Obviously every successful marriage is based on open communication. It may be difficult for your husband to talk with you if your conversations have typically ended in conflict. You have to lead the way when it comes to calmer, more productive discussions. Start talking more with your spouse about every day matters. Keep a cool demeanor at all times and always listen to what he has to say. If you show him, in this manner that you’re not going to verbally attack him when you two talk, he’ll be much more open to sharing what he feels about everything, including the marriage, with you.
Specific things you do and say can compel your husband to appreciate and love you more. Saying or doing the wrong thing can actually cause him to feel even more distant from you.
