My Husband’s Not Affectionate

4 Simple Ways to Stop Begging and Restore Your Magnetism

When I was at the lowest point in my marriage–feeling completely dejected and lonely because my husband was not affectionate–I kept reading advice from experts who insisted that the solution was to say, “I have a serious concern about your lack of affection.”

The underlying premise of this advice is that my husband just did not know that I liked affection.

Or maybe he did not realize he did not show affection. He just somehow…forgot.

But telling him to be more affectionate never works, as I’m sure you already know from trying it yourself.

If anything, that drove him further away.

Sometimes he’d leave tire marks in the driveway.

It wasn’t until I learned the 4 simple concepts below and started applying them in my marriage that I stopped feeling the urge to ask why my husband doesn’t show affection.

That’s because the smooching, the pats on the butt, and the fireworks in the bedroom came back.

4 Surprisingly Effective Ways to Bring Him Back to Life

Being married to Eeyore is excruciating. You’ve got to wonder why your guy doesn’t just look on the bright side.

But that’s not how depression works.

It makes sense that you want his depression to lift already so that the two of you can get back to laughing and having fun again.

His dark mood may be causing you more work, more loneliness and more heartbreak than you’d like to admit.

It’s frustrating.

Of course you’re not responsible for your husband’s depression, since you can only control yourself.

But you have tremendous influence over his outlook on life, including whether he feels confident and can-do or spirals into what’s-the-use mode.

Here are four powerful ways you can make the sun come out tomorrow.

Bet your bottom dollar on it:

Here’s how to get out of marriage purgatory now

When I married my husband, I thought he was the most handsome, smart, funny, talented guy I’d ever met. I couldn’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

But a few short years into our marriage, I couldn’t remember anything I liked about him. He seemed pathetic, immature, lacking ambition and sloppy.

He was the same guy, but my view of him had changed.

I thought I made a mistake and should divorce and try to find someone who suited me better.

Looking back, I now realize that I would have found myself in the same situation with the next handsome, smart, funny, talented guy.

They weren’t enhancing the rest of my life, either. At all.

It wasn’t until I changed those habits that I went back to seeing him the way I did on our wedding day.

When I finally woke up and realized what I was doing, I noticed I wasn’t the only one. Lots of wives have these same tendencies, and they contribute to a lot of NET (Needless Emotional Turmoil) and even divorce.

Here’s what the bad habits are, along with what you can do to turn your frog back into a prince:

5 Lies About Married Sex that Everyone Thinks Are True

If the sizzle is missing from your bedroom, you may think (like I did) that it’s because of circumstances beyond your control.

My Husband Is Not Attracted to Me

Why it’s Not What You Think and How to Solve the Real Problem

One of the most common problems I hear from wives is, “My Husband is not attracted to me anymore.”

It’s always heartbreaking, because I remember how lousy that felt.

And like me, the women who write to me with this usually think the problem is either that she married the wrong guy, or that her weight, her age, or her post-baby body has made her less beautiful.

And that’s painful, to think you don’t look good enough to get a pat on the butt or bedroom eyes anymore.

But how she looks is simply not the issue. Nor is it that she married the wrong guy.

Those weren’t the problems in my marriage when my husband was acting repulsed instead of attracted to me.

There was something else entirely going on, and it was a huge relief to finally discover it and get those butt pats and bedroom eyes back.

It was actually pretty simple to fix and had so many other benefits for me.

Confessions of a Former Rageaholic Who Found a Lasting Cure

It may not have been my first rageaholic episode, but I have a cringe-worthy memory of verbally ripping my sister up one side and down the other in anger when I was in college.

Her crime? She locked my keys in the car.

I could not contain the barrage of ugly words that came pouring out of me.

I said choice things like, “How could you be so stupid? What were you thinking? Obviously you weren’t! What an IDIOT you are!”

I went on and on in a shrill voice–all in front of my roommate.

I could not stop myself from berating her. It gave me a release that seemed impossible to deny.

It’s hard to convey the utter horror of the bully that I was.

Raging was a regular occurrence for me for over a decade. Managing that anger was impossible as far as I could tell.

Relationship Quiz

I picked on unlucky store clerks, bank tellers and customer service reps.

But most of all, I raged at my husband, whose response was to suffer through my episodes by saying very little and escaping as soon as he could.

I always felt tremendous shame and remorse afterward. But that didn’t help me when the urge arose the next time. And the next, and the next–hundreds of times.

But I no longer feel that urge. I haven’t had a Godzilla episode in over 17 years. I don’t miss them. At all.

The cure for my anger was a byproduct of my journey to fix another problem: My broken marriage.

I’m not the only one—my clients and coaches also report that their anger subsided and they regained their dignity when they adopted these simple practices:
