Will the two of you be willing to make it work?
It needs two hands to make sounds; therefore, if one of the partners loosens their hand and gives up, the marriage will surely end. On the contrary, the journey will continue as long as both sides show their willingness in trying to save the relationship.
How to know when your partner is done?
In today’s article, I’m going to share some signs on how to know when it’s over from the viewpoint of men.
1. He is distant from you
As a man, you feel wanting to end the relationship when you withdraw more and more.
You don’t want to do anything (indoor and outdoor) whenever your partner asks for. For example, you can’t help but saying no constantly every time she invites you to join her in doing stuff here and there. This is a pretty good sign that you’re so done with the current marriage.
Most of men are not good at asking their wives to visit places with them, but they would love it when the others come up with surprising plans and invite them. However, if you are no longer excited to go along with your partner, it means you already give up.
2. He doesn’t want to participate around the house
In a happy marriage, men enjoy getting involved with different tasks and missions around the house. That makes them look reliable and protective towards their significant other. Nonetheless, once they want to leave the current relationship, he doesn’t want to put much effort on those things.
You may feel the same. If your wife asks you to fix the rain gutters or repaint the rooms for the kids, you will come up with excuses to avoid doing those. You don’t want to waste your energy in doing a thing that will later be used by another man.
3. He is more into other stuff than his partner
You suddenly get into entertain things these days, such as video games, movies, and many more. You spend more time with your friends instead of your wife. That usually happens when men feel no longer interested in their relationships. Investing more on other activities and people excluding her is how you try to say that you don’t love her anymore and want to put an end to the marriage.
You do this because you don’t feel the need of considering her feelings, what she wants, or what you should do to make her happy.
Now you are more concerned about your own feelings and what you want.
4. He doesn’t like the sex
When you have sex with the person you love, especially it’s your wife; you must feel passionate and incredible. However, if you gradually feel that making love with her is now more and more bland and stale, it’s the sign your marriage is on the edge.
In addition, you don’t want to have sex with her as much as before. If you two do the lovemaking, it’s more like satisfying the physical needs of both, not inner emotions.
I must say that even your partner can feel that you don’t invest in her anymore. The whole process is just boring, stale, and bland. Your action is like you want to finish it as soon as possible.
If you just don’t like it, simply end the relationship rather than hurting her feelings.
5. He doesn’t want to make love
This is even worse than the above idea.
You now no longer want to have sex with your partner. Yeah, that’s strange, right? People often think that men want sex all the time. Nevertheless, it’s a wrong claim and misconception. Men do have standards. They won’t crave for sex as much as you may think if that person is someone they don’t feel close or connected with.
Sex between you and your wife might still happen but it won’t happen as frequent as before. You will soon realize that you tend to bring something with you in the bedroom to distract yourself from sex. It can be anything, like your smartphone, kindle or any kind of magazines.
So, how do you know when your marriage is over?
According to marriage counselors, there are several predictable signs your marriage is over for men telling when the male party is so done with the relationship. Of course signs between men and women are different because their thoughts, perspectives, and viewpoints are different in many ways.
If you really want to make your marriage work again, you need to improve from those signs above. Put your feet in your partner’s shoes to understand her feelings and what she has to suffer from your cold behavior. Also, you two need in-depth, serious conversation to clear all misunderstandings.
Making appointments with the counselor if you need advanced help.
