If communication and respect between you and your spouse is running thin, you may be worried about your marriage.
To have a long-lasting, solid and happy marriage, you must sustain communication, mutual respect and commitment.
If your husband often says these phrases, talk openly with him about how they make you feel. He should be understanding and respectful of your feelings and opinions.
1. "I'm bored"
Sometimes a break in your normal routine is refreshing. Ask yourself if you are happy with your relationship routine. Do you think he is? It is essential that you take some time occasionally to do different things to strengthen your love and deepen the emotional connection in your relationship.
Change is difficult. But if your husband constantly claims you are not capable of change, talk with him about why you do certain things he disagrees with. Discussing your reasoning will allow him to understand more fully where you are coming from. Take turns discussing things you won't change, and compromising the things both of you can change.
4. "Why are you not like ... ?"
Comparisons destroy relationships. If your husband constantly compares you to his mother, friends, sisters or other women, he is not properly valuing who you are. Think about the situation and make a decision that is best for your well-being.
6. "Whatever you say is fine," or "Whatever you want"
These phrases show a lack of interest in what you do, in fact, want. It is not because you dominate the relationship and he submits to your every whim; on the contrary! This constant attitude shows a lack of passion and intrigue in your marriage.
The key to a successful marriage is not dwelling on the petty things, but trusting and communicating with each other. Take time to solve problems and behaviors together in order to find happiness.
