LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
My Husband Treats Me Like a Roommate
When your husband treats you like a roommate, it feels cold and lonely. You didn’t get married to have a roommate! You got married to enjoy each other’s company, to enjoy passion, and if you’re anything like me, to feel desired. That’s so important. So getting the roommate treatment is a bait-and-switch that can make you feel rejected and abandoned as a wife. It’s also embarrassing.
At least it was for me, because I felt like it was proof that I wasn’t desirable, which I wasn’t, and that our marriage was falling apart, which it was.
So I had lots of problems and no idea where to start because I had already tried the oft-repeated advice to share my deep concerns about his lack of affection, and let me tell you: That. Did. Not. Work. It did not make him pull me in for a kiss and whisk me away to the bedroom, which is what I secretly wanted. That was painful.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re talking about what to do when your husband treats you like a roommate.
- I’ll share exactly what I did to skyrocket the passion in my marriage.
- Plus, my guest Deena’s marriage felt cold and distant, like roommates who were either fighting or having a cold war most of the time. The threat of divorce was hanging over them. Then Deena decided to do a few things differently, and instead of roommates she says they feel like soulmates. She’s going to tell us how she did it so you can do it too!
