LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
What are some ways to get more love?
When your husband is on the couch watching TV or staring at his phone while you’re doing the zillionth load of laundry, shuttling your kids around for the fifth time that day or putting in long work hours, it can rub you the wrong way.
Especially if he doesn’t even seem to know how clean underwear magically appear in his drawer.
It would go a long way to know that he sees how hard you work and that he values it.
But it appears he has no idea. He’s not even aware of all it takes to keep your household running smoothly, which makes you feel lonely and taken for granted.
You could tell him, but what would that accomplish? He’d only nod and listen as long as he thought he had to before he could get back to the TV or phone.
Then you’d feel even lonelier and less appreciated.
At least that’s how it went around here back in the bad old days.
Fortunately, there is a much better way to get some recognition from your husband, which all humans need at times.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 ways to get more love.

Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until 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 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.
