Marriage is often a roller coaster ride. One day you can feel as though your husband worships the ground you walk on and the very next day he’ll act distant and difficult. It’s hard enough to balance a long term relationship when things are going smoothly and you feel secure in his adoration and devotion. It’s incredibly challenging when your husband decides to act like he’s single and he tosses your feelings aside. One common complaint that you’ll often hear a married woman share is, “my husband flirts with other women!” If you happen to be the woman saying this, you know how much his behavior can not only hurt but undermine your self esteem as well. If you’re tired of standing on the sidelines while your husband flirts with everyone but you, take charge of your marriage now.
Whenever a woman says, “my husband flirts with other women,” it’s with a sense of sadness. In your mind if your husband absolutely adored you, he’d have no reason to even look at another woman, right? That’s actually quite wrong. When a man flirts with, becomes involved with or even has an affair with a woman other than his wife, it has more to do with him than anyone else. He’s not flirting with others because he doesn’t find you desirable or captivating. He’s doing it because he doesn’t feel good enough about himself. If a man is lacking self esteem, engaging in a bit of flirtatious behavior is a safe way to pump up his ego. If he can capture and keep the attention of an attractive woman for even just a few scant seconds, he’ll feel more like a desirable man.
So how can you intervene? One course of action you may have considered taking is calling him out on his behavior. Telling your husband that you find it disrespectful when he flirts with others seems like the right approach, doesn’t it? Most men will actually react negatively to this type of confrontation. They will say that they don’t believe they were doing anything wrong or you were making too big of a deal out of it. Part of that reaction stems from embarrassment and the other part is based on the fact that he doesn’t want to have to address his self esteem issues with you.
The best approach to take is to help him feel better about himself. There are numerous ways to do this obviously but you can start by complimenting him more and making it clear to him that you feel blessed to be his wife. Reach for his hand more when you two are out together and flirt with him yourself. If a man feels more desired by his own wife he’s going to feel less inclined to seek out validation through flirting with others. In simple terms, pay more attention to your man and he’ll likely pay much less attention to other women. All married men want to feel that their wife wants and needs them more than anyone else ever could. Make your husband feel that way again and he’ll only have eyes for you.
Are you tired of living in a relationship in which you feel neglected? Many married women find themselves feeling alone and rejected by their husbands. If you feel taken for granted, there’s a way to change that now.
