Once upon a time your husband could barely be apart from you. His calls were highly anticipated and he showered you with praise and affection. Then time has passed and his priorities have seemed to change. You are still his queen but perhaps no longer his princess.
Do you feel neglected by your husband? Many married women today are experiencing this problem of feeling unwanted by their hubbies. The big question is what really happens after getting married? Before he married you, he was caring, romantic and treated you like a queen.
Remember those nights he used to bring you beautiful flowers with no apparent reason? Now you feel that he doesn’t want to hear anything from you or even cares about your feelings.
There is definitely one concern in your life; is there any way to change this behavior or will you just spend the rest of your life with a man who doesn’t recognize your value?
The answer is no. The power to save your marriage by making your man more romantic and attentive lies entirely in your hands. The following points will help you do it successfully.
Make your feelings known to him
The moment you feel ignored, don’t keep it to yourself, talk to your husband and explain to him about your feelings. The key to success for any marriage is open, honest communication.
However, you need to be careful with this matter. Approaching your husband and telling him that he’s ignoring you will likely put him on the defensive. He will definitely find an excuse for his behavior and it can lead to an argument which is not healthy for your relationship.
The best way to approach this issue to politely open up to him the mistakes he is making and be clear that you no longer accept it any more.
Create Some Distance between the Two of You
One of the best strategies to try when you feel ignored is creating some distance between you and your husband. When a man gets married, he usually feels secure and confident in his wife’s devotion and love.
This is the main reason he stops being the caring man he was before, since he knows the wife will be there for him no matter what. Once your husband becomes accustomed to having you want his attention all the time, he will try to shut you out.
One way to have him stop ignoring you is by paying less attention to him. If you concern yourself with other things outside your home, he’ll immediately notice it. This will make him feel insecure since the grip he has on you will be loosening and he will, in all likelihood, act accordingly by giving you the kind of attention you deserve.
Show him that you have a life outside the walls of your home.
Your husband may be taking you for granted because you devote most of your time to your family, including him. He is likely to devalue you when you focus so much on the household activities instead of outside interests.
Try to be passionate about something new. This can be any kind of activity such as doing some volunteer work or taking a part time job. This will make him understand that you are a vibrant lady with many different interests and he will value you even more.
The key to making your husband pay more attention to you is to pay more attention to yourself. I know this might be unnatural to you since you are always giving of yourself to others. It might be time to focus a little more on your self. I’m not suggesting that you ignore your husband or your family. What I’m saying is that sometimes, just sometimes, a husband needs to see the gift he has in his wife. When he understands again how blessed he is to have you, he will give you more attention.
