You think you’re able to read your wife’s mind pretty well after all these years, right? Any man who answers that question with a resounding and firm “yes” is a rarity. Most married men will confess that they often don’t have a clue about what’s going on in their wife’s mind or her heart. They can only guess and typically that’s not the best idea when it comes to love and marriage matters. You may sense that something has changed with your wife but it’s hard to know what it is unless she’s willing to share. If she’s not, you’re left to your own devices and insight to try and piece together what she’s feeling. If you suspect that your wife is falling out of love with you it’s important to be aware of what warning signs indicate that is indeed happening. If you see some clear signs in her behavior that suggest she doesn’t feel as close to you emotionally as she used to, you can then set to work saving the marriage before it’s too late.
Here are a few warning signals that your wife is indeed falling out of love:
She’s much more critical than she used to be. There tends to be a little nagging woman in every wife. It’s hard for a woman not to get after her husband about certain things, but if those negative remarks take on a more personal tone, that’s reason for concern. If your wife constantly says derogatory or hurtful things to you, don’t just take it in stride or assume it’s because she’s not feeling herself. She may be finding more and more fault in you as a partner and a person because she isn’t in love with you anymore. She’s making herself feel better about the shift in her feelings by finding fault in you. In her mind, she’ll reason that it’s understandable why she doesn’t love you because you have changed so much from the day you two married.
She talks more frequently about divorced friends and how they are doing. This is actually quite a subtle sign of your wife’s shift in feelings but it’s incredibly telling. When a woman falls out of love with her husband she’ll often test the divorce waters by trying to get his opinion on the subject. What easier way to do that than by bringing up mutual friends who have gone through a divorce? If she asks your opinion about divorce or whether you think your friends’ children will suffer, she may just be trying to gain her own insight into how you’ll react when she does come out and announce she wants a divorce. If separation or marriage breakdowns are her new preferred topic of dinner conversation, you’ve got a large and looming problem in your marriage.
She avoids spending time with you. Happily married couples long to spend as much time together as possible. One of the most obvious signs that your wife has fallen out of love is she’ll constantly be too busy to share a meal with you, go out to a movie or even sit and talk. Her schedule will suddenly be overflowing with important things that have to be tended to if she doesn’t feel as connected to you as she once did. The reasons why women do this when they aren’t as engaged in their marriage anymore are many. It could be that she feels guilty or perhaps your wife just doesn’t have the patience for you since the feelings have all but disappeared.
Having the ability to recognize some of the warning signs of a wife who is no longer in love can be both painful and helpful. As with anything in life of value it’s much more important to be aware of what’s going on than to live in oblivion. Once you feel you have a good idea of where your wife’s heart is, you can then start deciding what step you need to be taking next whether that’s letting go of the marriage or rebuilding it from its foundation into something better than it’s ever been.
Saying or doing the wrong thing can actually cause your wife to feel even more distant from you. You can make your wife fall back in love with you, all over again.
You don’t have to worry about whether your wife is on the brink of asking you for a divorce. You can control the situation and use specific techniques to naturally make her fall hopelessly in love with you.
