Complaints From Unhappy Husbands

  ”I Wish She’d Appreciate Me A little More”
  The expert says: Whether you work in an office, run a household, or some combination of the two, you’re both likely frustrated1 with your heaping plates of responsibility. And although it’s a natural reaction, piling on more the second your partner steps through the door is not the best way to get him to hear or help you. “Instead of leading with a list, understand that he may need a few minutes to unwind,” says Kara Thompson, a licensed2 family and marriage therapist in Lenexa, KS. You’ll both listen better when you’ve decompressed and can actually focus on the issues at hand.
  ”I Wish She’d Plan Date Night Once In A While”
  The expert says: Good news: If you both feel like you need more one-on-one time, you’re already on the same page, which means you’re well on your way. The next step is to stop keeping a mental score sheet of who made plans the last time and put it on both of you to jump at the opportunity to, say, see a band you like when they perform nearby or try a new restaurant with an innovative3menu. In the end, it matters way less who dealt with the logistics than the fact that you bonded4 and enjoyed your time together.
  ”I Miss Having More Lighthearted Conversation”
  The expert says: There’s no question that having an open dialogue about your children is important, but we understand that it can get tedious after a while. Once the kids go to bed or while they’re out at weekend activities, make an effort to chat about lighthearted topics, like more serious news or political issues to keep you connected and stimulated5 as a couple.
  ”We Aren’t Romantic Anymore”
  The expert says: Relationships change and evolve, and sometimes the very qualities that attracted you to your husband are the ones that wind up making you nuts. It could be that you’re simply too stressed with the day-to-day to experience romance the same way-and that’s okay. The key is to come to a collective understanding of what sweet gestures now do it for you. A change of environment may do it-consider taking a break from the grind and going away for a long weekend.
