How to Deal With Disrespect in Marriage
If your husband criticizes you, it hurts. You’re doing so much, yet somehow it’s not enough. No matter how hard you try, your parenting, your housekeeping, or your work just don’t measure up–or so he would have you think.
Or maybe he tries to control how you do things, like “correct” grocery storage or underwear rotation.
Worse, he speaks to you like he wouldn’t even speak to a dog, yelling, swearing or calling you names. Having such a verbally abusive husband is devastating and some would say a big bright red flag.
Maybe he just keeps getting annoyed with you for no apparent reason at all, making you feel like a supreme irritant who’s worthless and totally unattractive.
That is such a lonely place to be.
The good news is that if you’re seeing any of these troubling signs of a disrespectful husband, there is still hope for fixing your marriage.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about how to deal with disrespect in marriage:
- You’ll learn four secrets to getting the respect you deserve.
- One year into their 18-year marriage, my guest Gabi already wanted a divorce. Her husband was always cranky and blamed her for being a bad parent of their five kids even though he was the one abusing alcohol. He lied, he flirted with female co-workers, he didn’t get along with her family, and made her feel like she wanted to die. But today her marriage is exactly what she dreamed about, and she has no doubt that her husband loves her and wants to be her hero. She’s going to share her secrets for creating your own loving story even if your relationship seems hopeless.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week seems to promote honesty but actually encourages you to be critical of your husband.
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.
