Geoff, you are pretty good at giving good advice, but this is the best one I read so far. We hear about Sisters going through a difficult time with their spouses, but even if we men do not easily express our marriage challenges, they are all the same. So I do relate to what has been said and appreciate the great advice on how to handle it properly.
So timely for me! I just returned from being out of town 2 days ago, and my husband was really happy to see me. but now we're going through another silent weekend. He is a homebody, but that doesn't mean he's available. I'll keep praying for him and us. It's so hard now that the kids are grown. I love the statement that sometimes you have to pretend, in order to protect your children and to prevent unwanted scrutiny from strangers.
I loved your answer. It's good to redirect our need for connection and find other outlets. It's good to increase our testimony and grow closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ knowing that they love us so very much and we are not invisible to them. I believe in the power of prayer and think this wife should pray for her husband and their relationship every day. We serve a God of miracles and maybe that husband will have his eyes opened to the needs of his wife.
