Re: Why does my husband not put his arm around my waist, only my shoulder?
My ex only put his arm around me when we were at parties with people he wanted to impress. He'd touch me again when he wanted sex. That was about it. Does this description fit your relationship? If so, hash it out now. And yeah, I think it is a way of "marking" you as "his," rather than just wanting to be close to you. But it's probably a very subconscious thing and he's unaware, and maybe his need to "mark" is gone but it's just a habit, so don't jump to conclusions. Just ask him about it.
