9 Ways to Handle A Cold And Distant Spouse. http://www.MarriageGuy.com -- 9 Ways to Handle Cold And Distant Spouse
Do you have an emotionally distant spouse? Do they often “check out,” or refuse to talk about what’s bothering them? Do they get defensive or act coldly when you ask why the intimacy has left your marriage? Do you sometimes feel like you’re alone in your relationship?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions then you may be feeling like your spouse doesn’t care about you, or that they’re no longer happy in your marriage. In situations like this it’s easy to feel like your relationship is falling apart. But is this really the case, or does your spouse just need some time and space?
My name is Brad Browning and today I’m going to share with you tips on what to do when your spouse acts coldly or distant towards you. As a relationship coach and marriage expert, I deal with these kinds of problems all the time. If you’re feeling at fault for your spouse’s behaviour, or you’re regretting some of your actions, don’t worry, you’re not alone and I can help you.
So, without delay, here are ten things you can do when your spouse acts coldly or becomes distant.
Number 1: Respect Your Spouse’s Differences
When you and your partner first got together, you both had different ideas, stories, opinions and interests. However, it’s likely that over the years some of your differences and opinions changed to form common likes, dislikes, and outlooks. For example, maybe you both started liking the same foods or picked up the same hobbies. While some of your common interests may be permanent, it’s possibly that as time goes on, you and your spouse will form new opinions that will create new differences.
Although we may sometimes forget, relationships require a profound respect for each other’s differences. It’s equally as important to note that having differences doesn’t mean that one person is right and the other wrong. If your spouse is acting distant, make an effort to respect their differences. Debating opinions will only push them further away, and you don’t want to make them feel attacked. Instead celebrate your differences and accept that their opinions are what makes your spouse who they are.
After all, they do say that “opposites attract.”
