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.

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.

How to Get Your Husband Back after He Leaves You

14 Ways to Shock Him and Yourself for the Good of You Both

I can’t think of anything more painful and heartbreaking than having your husband say, “I don’t love you anymore. Maybe I never did.”

Or, “It’s over. I’m in love with someone else.”

Or–maybe even worse—to discover those things without him saying anything.

It’s only human to be angry at him for being such a thoughtless jerk. As a mere mortal woman, you likely want him to hurt the way you hurt when he did the terrible thing.

Of course, there’s no real comfort in making him suffer, even though it’s more tempting than a Cinnabon.

There are, however, several specific things you can do that will give you real relief from that continuous ache, and also help you put your family back together.

The “I Was Just Trying To Help” Syndrome

For a lot of us women, when it comes to our husbands, we have an unconscious refrain jingling in our heads that goes like this: “I know better than he does—I will help him do it right.” With this background music, we quickly develop an air of superiority. We feel qualified to instruct our husbands on how to vacuum the carpet, talk to the children, and negotiate with his colleagues. All the while we tell ourselves that we are simply helping.

For years I truly believed if I could just get my husband to be tidier, more romantic, and more considerate everything would be fine. I told him as much, and while that didn’t improve things at all, it did create wall-to-wall hostility and tension in our home.
