How to Save Your Marriage when He Won’t Even Try

What One Wife Did All by Herself that Made Her Marriage Magical Again

One of the most painful things I often hear from a woman struggling in her marriage is hopelessness about her husband being unwilling to work on the relationship.

She’ll tell me he won’t go to counseling. He won’t even read a single book.

She’s already exhausted from all the work she’s done on the relationship, and it’s apparent he just doesn’t care. At all.

And he’s the one who has the anger problem or who doesn’t make any effort to spend time with the family or who wants to separate.

The good news is that any wife can singlehandedly solve her marriage problems.

And don’t worry–he’ll change too.

That’s what Olivia discovered. I’ll let her tell you in her own words:

Hi! I'm Laura.

I was great wife material until, well, I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me had returned.

I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.

4 Ways to Bring Back the Magic from When You First Fell in Love

Sometimes it feels like everything else is more important to your husband than you are: work, the kids, whoever is texting him. Even the dog gets more of his time than you do!

You’re craving his attention so much it hurts, and yet the whole day passes–and the next and the next–and he has barely acknowledged that you exist.

It’s easy to get resentful and feel unimportant. Him just asking about your day or sitting next to you on the couch would be so simple to do and go such a long way with you.

But he doesn’t. He won’t.

I still remember what that was like.

Since you can’t control anyone except yourself, how do you get him to improve?

Here’s how to solve this painful dynamic:

5 Radical Self-Care Ideas

Self-Care Ideas

5 Ways to Practice Radical Self-Care

By Dr. Laura Markham, Author, Parenting Expert and Guest Blogger

“Want to feel as playful and vibrant as your children? Want to feel an abundance of energy? Want to experience greater clarity in all you do? Want to wake up jazzed about the day ahead? Imagine taking care of yourself in all the marvelous ways you take care of others. It makes sense that, if you shifted self-care onto the top of your priority list, you would feel more rested, more centered, more present to your loved ones, more joyful…”

— Woman’s Field Guide

Most of us find that when we can stay connected to our internal fountain of well-being, it overflows onto our children and we’re more patient, loving, joyful parents.

To love our children unconditionally, we need to keep our own pitchers full so we can keep pouring as needed.

Quite simply, we can only give what we have inside. And even if parenting is the most meaningful part of your life, it still requires a whole lot of giving.

And yet, most of us live in constant stress, which means we’re often running on empty. Many days we wake up wishing life could be different.

Small wonder we lose patience with our children. And then we feel even worse.

Sadly, remorse and self-blame after we lose patience don’t change anything.

Actually, it makes things worse because you can’t be emotionally generous when you’re feeling like a bad person.

You can.

4 Unconventional Ways to Grow Your Family

It’s so normal for you to want a baby. And then another, and even another.

Maybe your heart yearns for enough babies to form your own basketball team–or even a baseball team.

But what if your husband isn’t on board? What if he thinks you already have enough kids?

What if he doesn’t even want one child?

One husband told his wife they needed to work on their marriage before they’d be ready to conceive.

To his wife that sounded the same as “We’re never having a baby,” which made her wonder about the benefit of being married at all, since she had always wanted a family.

But just because he’s shaking his head now doesn’t mean he won’t get behind the idea of growing your family.

There are a few simple things you can do to make him much more open to the idea.

This Simple, Powerful Quiz Reveals How You Can Attract Him Like a Magnet

I often hear this heartbreaking question from women: “My husband says he’s not in love with me anymore. Should I just give up and move on?”

Who wouldn’t feel unloved and hopeless hearing those words? What a lousy thing to experience.

But it doesn’t mean your man will continue to feel that way. You have a lot of influence over whether he loves you, and you can regain his affection–no matter what he says.

I don’t mean you should try harder or make his dinner or do his laundry. Quite the opposite.

This isn’t about what you do in bed either.

It’s about using your power to create more love between the two of you.

To get you started and show you what I mean, I made a simple but powerful quiz that will give you incredibly clear insight about your relationship.

And with the self-awareness you’ll gain from this quiz, you can take effective action that will make your husband fall for you again–hard!

It worked for me, and it’s worked for thousands of women all over the world in 18 languages and 29 countries.

It will work for you too.

How I Got My Husband Back

how to get my husband back

How I Drove Another Husband Away—and Got Him Back

by Deb Reid, LDC Relationship Coach Training Graduate

“I don’t think I can do this anymore.”

I froze.

I had heard those words before, years ago, with a different husband. That time, I had four babies under the age of six.

Sadly, the common factor was me.

I stumbled away and drove, sobbing all the way. I stopped halfway at a women’s refuge and pleaded with them to help me. They couldn’t.

I cried out to God. “Help me. Show me what to do. I can’t go through this again.”

Long, dark hours later, I arrived at my lonely hotel. No messages. Nothing. I took a sleeping pill and cried myself to sleep.

I spent the next four days with my girlfriends, celebrating our fiftieth birthdays. We shared our stories, cried, laughed and floundered around trying to find solutions for our myriad of marital problems.

Then I had to go home. Would my husband even be there?

I took my time. With my surfboard, a tent and a sleeping bag, I cruised my way south.

I kept praying, “God show me.”

How could I mend something when I didn’t understand why or how it was broken? Why had two husbands wanted to leave me? I was consumed by self-doubt.

I was a teacher and knew that the secret to problem-solving was having an open mind and a humble heart.

My Husband Has Low Self Esteem

11 Ways to Give Your Husband Swashbuckling Swagger and Self-Confidence

A confident man is a sexy man.

But an insecure guy is not very appealing.

When you see his doubts and low self-esteem, his indecision or inability to handle a situation you could manage with half your brain tied behind your back, it’s a turnoff.

You start to wonder what you ever saw in the guy. You want him to believe in himself already.

You want to see some conviction and manliness.

Every wife wants her husband to be confident. So how do you cultivate that?

Isn’t it something he’s got or he doesn’t? Can you even influence his self-esteem?

Of course you can. Just not the way you think. Not by telling him to be more confident.

You’re the woman who knows him best in the world, and what you think of him has a profound impact on what he thinks of himself.

How I Found My Own Don Juan and Stopped Feeling Alone in My Marriage

By Mari-Jean Phillips-Anderson
Laura Doyle Certified Relationship Coach

I told my husband I wanted to write this blog and asked what he thought had changed for us since I first read The Surrendered Wife.

“Well,” he said, “It really helped you when I was in Afghanistan.” Nope, that was way before.

“Well,” he said, “It helped you when your sister died.” Nope, that was way before too.

He went on to mention several more incidents that preceded my introduction to Laura Doyle.

Pre-Laura Doyle, I would have gotten up and walked away in disgust, pitying myself for getting hooked up with this unseeing, unfeeling, uncaring entity.

But here’s the magic: I let him speak and, boy, were my eyes opened.

How to Get Your Man’s Support for the Cherished for Life Weekend

He’ll Be Happy and Helpful if You Use This Approach

I’ve gotten lots of emails about this recently. So, I decided that you can call me and ask me anything or join me live on FB (details below).

Let’s say you want to spend some money, leave town for a few days and maybe get your husband’s help with the kids while you’re gone.

And let’s say you want to do all of this without telling him exactly where you’re going and what you’ll be doing there.

How do you do that?

That’s the situation you may find yourself in as you’re trying to make arrangements to come to the Cherished for Life Weekend.

You want to come to the good-time getaway, hone your Intimacy Skills™ with all the other amazing women and renew your feminine spirit.

But you don’t want to tell your man all the details.

You’d like to give yourself some privacy as you’re starting out, and have room to experiment without him knowing everything just yet.

That’s understandable.

Fortunately, he doesn’t need to know everything to get behind the idea.
