Marriage seems like a walk in the park on your wedding day. Its easy to believe that the journey ahead will be filled with only good times and happiness. Unfortunately, for most couples the honeymoon phase is short lived. We all change over time and that includes our spouses. If youre married to a wonderful man but youre beginning to question whether hes truly as happy and fulfilled as he was when you two first married, theres a way to tell by his actions. Men are an open book when it comes to gauging how they feel based on certain small signs. Once you can recognize those signs, you can then do what is necessary to ensure he starts to experience the happiness you want him to within the relationship.
Determining whether or not your husband is happy starts with comparing his attitude towards you today versus before you two were married. Its inevitable that he would be somewhat different now. However, if that difference is causing you emotional pain because hes turned to being unkind towards you or critical, that cant be ignored. When a man is unhappy hell take his frustration over that out on his wife. Shes the person hes closest to and therefore the person hes most likely to lash out at. If you find that youre continually struggling with feelings of being belittled by your husband, its obvious that he isnt happy at all.
If your husband has lost interest in the things he was once passionate about, thats another sign that hes unhappy. When a person starts to feel disconnected from their life, theyll withdraw into themselves more and more. If he was once a vibrant and dynamic man who spent a great deal of time outdoors and now hes typically sitting in front of the television each night, thats not promising for your marriage.
Although it could be strictly work related, theres a very good chance that hes also not finding the joy in your relationship that he once did.
The amount of time hes setting aside for you and your relationship is also very telling. If he comes up with endless excuses for why the two of you cant spend time together, alone, that suggests that hes feeling uncomfortable with the idea of it. If you believe this to be the case, you have to act quickly to save the marriage. If he continues to pull back and you simply ignore it, you can expect your marriage to fall apart right before your very eyes.
