I can definitely feel your pain and the weight of this situation on your soul from what you have described.
My marriage is seriously strained at the moment that I just feel I am being punished for what I have no power over. The truth is, a woman will only respect her husband more, feel more attracted to him and fall more in love with him if she already feels a lot of respect, attraction and love for him and he then does those things every now and then. I hope that you know that when she does that, it is probably unintentional. Then, draw her in for a hug and let her feel your masculine dominance. I was surprised, shocked, hurt, and disappointed.
When you fail to acknowledge the fact I am upset it makes me feel as though I'm not cared about. When just one spouse is willing to obey His Word about marriage, God begins to do amazing things!

The result is that she now wants a divorce. But if you notice that your wife is suddenly only worried about herself, it could be a bad thing. I love my wife deeply. We get back to our hometown, start our professional careers, buy a house, and have a couple of children.
A woman who truly loves her husband will put the needs of her husband first before hers. Once she got out, everything was nice at first, but I started to notice her getting distant. There are steps you can take to nudge your marriage towards health, without swinging to extremes overreacting or under-reacting.

It is only when spouses look up to each other and believe that they are together working for the health of their marriage, that their relationship can be a success. I used to read the word trto her at night before she went to sleep. It took me a solid 2 years of studying and seeking to learn to understand respect before I began to have a clue what I was doing.

When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. If she feels understood, she is more likely to be open to trying to understand you, without immediately feeling defeated and blamed, and becoming defensive.
Ask yourself things like how often you argue, what you are arguing about and how you can avoid these. If you have become a pile of mush that crumbles under pressure and cannot stand up for yourself in the relationship, then it will take a change in mindset and some serious practice to develop the habits that will make you the man she craves.
