Being ignored in your own home is one of the worst feelings in the world. People are social creatures and they want to feel like they belong, so when you are a wife asking yourself “Why does my husband ignore me?” it’s a pretty serious issue. There shouldn’t be any blame put on you, but if you are going to change this you are going to have to rethink about the way you communicate with your husband.Men and women think in two totally different ways, us wives want to be loved and cherished forever, while your husband needs to feel like he’s respected. Chances are, there are something things that were said at one point in time that were misunderstood by your husband and over time he has ducked back into his shell to protect himself from more damage.The things you may have said were possibly made just for small talk, but little by little innocent comments like “Nice car,” and “What a gorgeous house,” may have made your husband feel like you didn’t think he made enough money.Another example of communication like this would be sarcasm. You may be teasing your husband about the lack of hair on his head or the fact that his beer belly has gotten bigger, but little by little these comments have eaten away at him and made him feel that you don’t respect him.In some cases, there are things that just cannot be helped at a certain point in time. In our marriage, I am the main bread winner and always have been. I know this has bothered my husband from day one, but there really is nothing I can do about this until he takes his future into his own hands. I can guide him in the right direction, but telling him what he should and shouldn’t do only leads him to believe that I don’t think his decisions are good enough. This has been a tough lesson to learn for me, but it definitely has helped the two of us.I am not saying that you have to bow down to every whim your husband has, that would be blowing your marriage back into the dark ages. You just need to think about how something you say may be interpreted by your husband and possibly filter it to his language.
