How to know if your husband hates you? Signs that love has gone
Is there a way to know if your husband hates you? “Hate” is such a strong word, isn’t it? But unfortunately, you feel that your husband has come to dislike you to the point that he detests you. That’s a tough emotional pill for any married woman to swallow. The nagging feeling that her husband just isn’t happy is hard to shake. In the back of your mind, you can’t help but wonder if you’re misunderstanding things, right? You are hoping you are, but there are still some signs present that the man you married no longer has any degree of love or affection for you. Is there a definitive way to know what is going on in his heart without confronting him? Actually, there are some subtle clues that can help you clarify where the connection with her husband lies and whether or not her marriage really has a future.
Here are some signs that the love your husband once felt for you has disappeared:
He is no longer affectionate. A man in love wants to be affectionate with the woman he adores, be it a girlfriend or a wife. Men enjoy stealing kisses and long to be close to the woman in their lives. If your husband never wants to kiss you and holding hands has become a very distant memory in your marriage, it’s a clear sign that his feelings for you have definitely moved to a less flattering place.
He is very critical of you. Every relationship goes through periods of time when the couple seems to disagree on anything. In some marriages, those conflicts get into personal waters when either the husband or the wife start hurling hurtful insults. Her husband may have always been critical of you to some degree, but if he’s turned it up a notch and into spiteful territory, that’s an indicator that he no longer feels for you. A man who desperately loves his wife will not intentionally say hurtful things to her no matter how strained her marriage is.
Avoid spending time with you. Many women incorrectly conclude that their husband is having an affair when he starts working more. In reality, most men who intentionally avoid being with their wives are not cheating. They just don’t know how to spend a few hours with a woman they’ve grown to dislike. If you notice that your husband seems preoccupied with the idea of being further away from home, take this as a clear sign that he no longer finds satisfaction within your marriage.
You forget important dates. You can laugh at this sign that your husband no longer loves you, but take a moment to consider it carefully. Yes, some men are notoriously bad at remembering important dates in their wife’s life or within their marriage, but there’s a point where it’s less about memory issues and much more about intent. If your husband has always given you something for your birthday and you get absolutely nothing this year, it’s not that he’s too busy or forgetful. He has made a conscious decision not to acknowledge your birthday and that is incredibly significant. The same is true if his wedding anniversary has passed without even a greeting card.
Spend more time alone with the kids. If your husband insists on spending more time alone with the children, it is a very worrying but clear sign that the marriage is coming to an end. Some men, who feel emotionally disconnected from their wives, will forge a new and individual relationship with their children. They do this in anticipation of a separation when they will be forced to be single parents at certain times. This is a situation that can be confusing to a woman who is unaware of her husband’s changed feelings.
Recognizing some of the signs that your husband no longer feels as close to you as he used to can help you determine what you want your future to look like, and therefore what your next step should be. Arming herself with more knowledge, in terms of what she feels and expects from her husband, will help her move toward the most informed and appropriate choice for her own future and that of her children.
