The Real Reason Your Husband Ignores You
Ignoring is a passive-aggressive way of dealing with a chronic relationship problem.
When your husband ignores you, no matter if it’s all the time or just after arguments, he is trying to avoid and run away from a problem instead of dealing with it and solving it.
(It doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love you anymore!)
So he spends all day at work, way more than he really needs to. Or he locks himself in a room playing X-Box or watching who-knows-what on the computer.
He fills his spare time, which should be spent with you, with friends/family/golf/whatever. He never seems to touch you, or kiss you (unless he wants sex) and never tells you he loves you.
When you try to talk to him about it, he gives you lame excuses and ignores your feelings altogether.
Ignoring is always a result of marriage communication problems. And, not knowing how to communicate with each other is the #1 cause of any marital crisis.
The Simple Way To Make Him Stop Neglecting You
Making your husband stop ignoring you is all about communication. The key to getting a man to listen to what you say and open up to you is to understand HIM before you talk about YOU.
I know, annoying advice. You already feel like he has all the power and you always have to understand him while he doesn’t make a tiny effort to do the same?
Your humiliated ego screams.
It’s completely normal.
But I’ll tell you why it’s the key to solving your problems: because this is the way to get everything you ever wanted from him.
Let’s say your husband spends all his time working, or locked up with the computer, and has no desire in spending any time with you.
One day you try to talk to him about it, and this is usually how the conversation goes:
And this is where useless arguments start, or he just leaves the room and runs away from the conversation and both of you end up highly frustrated.
Now, here’s the little-known secret:
In order to be understood, you have to first understand.
In other words, you have to show your man who you understand his situation first before you expect him to understand yours.
When you do that (talking about his needs first), you’ll get it back ten times over. He will instantly cater to your needs, without any resistance.
Can I suggest the right way to do this?
When you are willing to give while you communicate, before you expect to get anything back, you can make your husband do anything you want from him.
You can turn a difficult situation into an easy one, just making a few adjustments with your words.
It’s simple, and it works.

What If Your Husband Ignores You Sexually?
When your spouse shows no interest in a physically intimate relationship, that’s a bit of a red flag.
