He said he doesn’t love me anymore. It’s been 6 years of marriage, 2 dating before that. 3 kids – 6, 4, and 1. I guess I kind of knew that things weren’t going well but it completely blindsided me that things were going this bad. We haven’t had very much sex in the last year because our youngest isn’t a very good sleeper and I just want to sleep when I can. But I love my husband and feel guilty for not making him a priority. I want him. I want to fight for him. I want us. I can be a better wife. I can’t talk without crying. How can I save this?
You know what! If he can’t be understanding during this season of your life, he’s the one in the wrong! Parenthood changes relationships and eventually you can get back to where you once were but this is just a different time in your life. He needs to get on board with that! That’s what happens when you decided to start a family! You don’t come first anymore.
Oh no! It can be saved! Talk with him openly, tell him your struggles. Make sure not to place blame but make him see what it’s like for you right now and listen to what he has to say. Communication can fix it!
