When your spouse isn’t interested in doing the “work” of marriage, it’s easy to feel powerless. But all isn’t lost, said Jeannie Ingram, a couples therapist based in Nashville, Tennessee.
“The relationship doesn’t have to end,” she told LovePost. “The truth is, all relationships need tuning up from time to time.”
Below, Ingram and other experts share the most common signs a spouse has checked out of a marriage — and what you can do to take matters into your own hands.
#1. They spend a lot of time around you but not with you.
It doesn’t count as quality time if one of you is distracted by your smartphone or checking work emails, said Aaron Anderson, a marriage and family therapist based in Denver, Colorado.
“If you and your spouse spend a lot of time in the same room but they never do things with you, they’ve likely disengaged from the relationship,” he told us. “Nobody wants to spend the two hours after work browsing social media.”
Try planning new, exciting things to do together so hopefully “your partner will want to shut down the computer and turn off their phone to be with you,” Anderson said.
