How do I keep my wife?
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
My wife a few days ago tells me she's not sure what she feels for me anymore, and that I don't care about our future, and she thinks she may want to seperate. I love her more than anything, and she said she needs a little space so I gave her that, and she told me yesterday she thinks we can't go on, and I told her I will change, I'll be a better husband, and I'll work harder to make our future brighter, be more active around the house, and not be jealous, but she's not sure if I can change. I know it's hard to, but I'm serious about fixing what's wrong with me, She said she'll think about it, but she needed to stay at her girlfriends house, to think and clear her head.
I think I may have ruined our marriage, simply by being lazy and not trying hard enough to move forward. How can I convince her that I'm willing to change, And get her to give me another chance? I'll do whatever it takes, I love her to much to lose her.
Make changes right now!
Get up off your butt and do things and tell her about them. Maybe you should take up a sport like volleyball with your local rec dept. Read more and show her your knowledge. Work out. Get a second job. Visit relatives. Ask her on a cruise or even a weekend trip. Get her some presents. Go to church.
There are many other things you could figure out to do. You will have to show her that you recognize your faults and spend a fair amount of time implementing the changes. If you are jealous, ask her sincerely if she is seeing other men and don't freak-out if she is. Remember you love her.
