3. Looks at pornography
Nothing will make your wife feel more despairingly inadequate than you looking at pornography. A study by Fight the New Drug showed that after men were exposed to pornography, they rated themselves as less in love with their partner, and were more critical of their partner’s appearance, sexual performance and displays of affection.
There is never room for this in a marriage.
This is a neon sign to your wife telling her she is not good enough. As time goes by and you continue to look at pornography, you’ll come to believe that about her as well.
4. Doesn’t initiate hugs or kisses
Withholding physical affection except when you want to be intimate makes her feel used and undesirable.
Try kissing your wife on the forehead one evening and telling her you love her. If you do this just because you love her, with no expectation of having sex after, she’ll feel beautiful and adored.
