There are many different layers to a successful marriage. A couple that finds a strong connection usually also can claim to be best friends, confidantes and each others’ biggest supporter. When that changes, the marriage is in trouble. If a man finds himself saying, “I have no emotional connection with my wife anymore,” his marriage needs his immediate and undivided attention. The emotional connection in a marriage is the glue that binds it together. Without it you can expect your relationship to wither away and die and eventually you and your wife will end up divorced.
If the emotional connection you shared with your wife has shifted, it’s important to determine why. In some instances there has been a major conflict that has pulled the couple apart. Perhaps you and your wife have been arguing constantly over the same issue without any resolution. If that’s the case, you can expect the emotional connection between the two of you to disappear. It’s challenging to feel close to someone you feel you can’t reason with.
Another hurdle that many marriages face is neglect. Not in the physical sense, but in the emotional one. If you and your spouse don’t attend to each other’s emotional needs on an ongoing basis you can expect the relationship to start to unravel. Resentment will build in each of you as you feel your spouse doesn’t understand your needs. In time, you just won’t talk about it anymore and once that happens the marriage begins to really suffer.
You can begin pulling your wife closer again today by talking with her more. Communication is the cornerstone of every successful marriage. Couples who talk about what is going on between them are more likely to feel a deepening emotional connection as the years pass by. If a couple stops talking, their entire relationship will suffer to the point that it eventually will become a barren shell of what it was.
It’s also essential that you begin treating your wife as the valued and respected partner that she is. Don’t look to her to take care of tasks just because it’s what she’s always done. It’s important for a marriage to be balanced in every way so if you can help her by taking on some of the household or parenting tasks that she typically focuses on, do it. By showing your wife that you want to make her life easier, you’ll be showing her just how much you care for her.
Also, don’t overlook the power in a small gesture like bringing her a bouquet of fresh flowers or writing her a love letter. Acts like this mean the world to a married woman as it shows that her husband still thinks of her as his romantic partner. By putting some extra effort into this area of your marriage, you’ll be not only improving the emotional connection but you’ll be ensuring she feels cherished as your wife as well.
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.
