How do you respond when your husband says he doesn’t like the way you dress? Maybe he complains about the style or colors of your clothes. Maybe he says you dress too sexy, or too frumpy, or too young, or too old. Maybe your husband wants you to wear different clothes because he’s concerned what his coworkers or family thinks.
The bad news is that you broke up. Maybe this is even the second or third breakup. But wait, I have good news! Convincing someone to give you a second chance may be easier than you think. A surprising number of breakups aren’t permanent because it is really hard to let go of someone you love (which is good news when you want to convince your ex to come back to you!).
These 10 ways to help a husband who drinks too much are partly based on my work in a residential recovery program with men who are alcoholics and drug addicts. I was also inspired to write this article by a reader, who is searching for ways to cope with her alcoholic husband.
Whether or not you broke up with your boyfriend because of money, you may not be prepared for the financial stress a breakup brings. Maybe you loaned your boyfriend money and he hasn’t repaid you. Maybe you owe your husband money for college tuition, credit card payments, mortgage payments, child support or alimony.
He tells you he loves you, yet you feel anxious and insecure. How do you overcome insecurity in a relationship with someone you love — and may even be married to? These five things to remember will help you feel more secure and grounded in your relationship.
Are you picking up on signs he doesn’t love you anymore? Maybe your boyfriend doesn’t listen to you, or your husband hasn’t “dated” you for years. These eight signs he doesn’t love you will help you see your relationship more clearly. If his feelings for you have changed, it’s time to think about how your relationship may have to change, too.
You love your boyfriend and you think (or know!) he loves you back…but he stopped making an effort in your relationship. You’re starting to wonder about your boyfriend’s feelings for you. Maybe you’re even worried that he no longer loves you the way he used to.
These signs a marriage is over will help you see yourself – and your husband – more clearly. It’s not easy to see your marriage objectively when you’re in the middle of it. It’s even harder to see yourself and your husband without your history coloring your lens! These signs your marriage is over will help you take a step back and look at your life from a different perspective.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value in God’s eyes.
