My Husband Ignores Me: What to Do When You’re Rejected by Your Own Man

Wives are feeling lonely

We receive letters from women each week. We feel privileged they take time to share their hearts and lives with us. The hardest part is hearing the difficulties many of them go through. Lately, women are telling us they feel ignored by their spouses. It’s sad to hear how worthless it makes them feel.

Logistically, that could never happen. But I do have this blog, so, I can virtually pace and holler a little bit right here.

Women just want their husbands to spend time with them. They ask us what in the world they should do, because they are feeling depressed and unimportant. They feel like they don’t matter. I have spent a lot of time trying to find an answer for them, because I know there has to be one. How do we break the pattern?

1. Stop the cycle.
