My wife is always wrapped up in our kids-how do I get her to pay attention to me and our marriage? “Frustrated”
I can hear your frustration. It sounds as if you are feeling left out and not as important in your wife’s eyes as perhaps you once did. Unfortunately, this occurs in many marriages, especially when the children are very young. However the solution is simple! Effective communication. Expressing to your wife in an effective and loving manner is vital for her to actually hear and understand your feelings about the situation. Once she hears and understands your feelings, you can both work together to find a mutually satisfying solution to get to a healthier place in your marriage.
