Re: OK MEN, why would you ignore your wife, physically, and intamatly?
Hi Sarah. Speaking as a man, I haven't a clue. I'll tell you that my wife behaved this way for the past year or so of our marriage. Now we are living in separate bedrooms, in counseling, she's involved with a circle of online friends, one current or former online affair, list goes on.
Back to the point, I suspect that you're both missing the mark when it comes to loving one another. If you read through some other posts on this board you'll see various terms - love busters is a common one - to describe the little things we do in the everyday that cause our spouses to feel unloved, even when we're trying to show our love to them. We say something wrong, turn our backs on our spouse to finish housework,or fail to stand up for ourselves at a critical moment, or one of a dozen other items. These whittle away at the love he or she feels for you until it reaches a point that they can't feel it at all any more. I'm sad to say that, when that happens, the spouse often wanders off or simply shuts down to you.
Do some reading, take a critical look at your marriage and how you interact with your spouse. Come here for advice - most of it's good and it's all free - and KEEP TRYING.
