3 Solutions When Your Husband Is Miserable
When your husband is miserable and grumping around the house or hiding in his man cave, naturally you want to help pull him out of it somehow. But what if he’s really committed to his suffering and your efforts don’t seem to do any good? What if you get exhausted trying to cheer him up?
It’s lonely and irritating to be married to Mr. Misery, especially if it’s been a while and it doesn’t look like he’ll be feeling sunny any time soon.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re talking about 3 solutions when your husband is miserable:
- I’ll share 3 ways to improve your situation without having to do any more tiring work to pull him out of the doldrums.

That sparked her to take action where she ended up relaxing more, and to her amazement, her man stepped up to help more. Ten months later, he proposed and now they are planning two weddings! What did she do to turn things around? She’s going to explain so you can do it too.
- The worst advice of the week is from a major online publication about habits that are sabotaging your relationship. Wait until you hear the dopey advice a couples therapist seems to think would help with communicating your needs. I can’t EVEN keep my eyes from rolling out of my head!
