Chances are good that you married an imperfect man who's perfect for you.
Instead of trying to pry his feelings out of him, consider bringing respect back into the relationship by honoring your husband's masculinity and his choices for himself.
Marriage counselors will tell you that the only thing you have to do to change your spouse is get him to come in for a hundred sessions.
But marriage counseling will never work because it focuses on someone you can't change: Your spouse.
Hundreds of thousands of women have used these principles to transform their shredded marriages into intimate, passionate relationships, but too many are still stuck in ineffective marriage counseling.
Here are some of the reasons that marriage counseling is a big, fat lie. It starts with calling your spouse a loser When a wife says to her husband, "We should go to counseling," what she really means is, "You're a loser." Since a key ingredient for intimacy is emotional safety, this approach puts the connection she craves further out of reach.
The last time your husband criticized you, did it make you want to hug him?
A woman who doesn't realize she just criticized her husband by suggesting marriage counseling might think his snarky response is coming out of nowhere -- which proves he needs marriage counseling.If you want more passion in your marriage, there's no stronger aphrodisiac than respect. It's the most expensive way to try to control your spouse Marriage counseling may seem like an important purchase, but it's actually a tragic waste because it diverts funds from something that really would help your marriage: Self-care.Self-care means not only getting enough rest and nourishment, it means that you make it a priority to do three pleasurable things every single day.In an evolving process, you share you thoughts, your feelings, and your dreams.If you cannot establish intimacy with your partner, your relationship may work for a while, but is unlikely to endure throughout the years.There are two type of romance: selfish romance (pursuing a romance for purely self serving reasons such as getting gifts, sexual favors, or trying to impress someone else) and selfless romance (romantic acts for the enjoyment and pleasure of your partner). This is often where an emotional relationship turns into a physical relationship. From here the couple must decide which path to take.
