'He's not interested in me anymore...'

Dear Diana,
I am 29 and my husband is 32. We have been married for two years. For the first six months of our marriage, he was caring and went out of his way to please me. Gradually he stopped bothering about me as he was tied up with work. Later, he even stopped interacting with me even though we stay in the same house. He leaves home in the morning and returns late night. It is as if we are no longer husband and wife. I am there to do all the household chores for him. I stay with my in-laws, but they are old and have their set of medical problems. I have tried to talk to my hubby, but he laughs off my fears. Has he found someone else in his life? I am confused by his behaviour. I wonder what went wrong?

Dear Aanchal,
You need to express your fears and apprehensions to your husband. If he laughs it off, you have to explain to him that it is no laughing matter. May be your hubby is too tied up at the workplace and has too much to handle which is leaving him with not much time at home. Either way it is important that he tells you what is going on. He is married to you and he owes you an explanation about his changed behavior.

Dear Diana,
I've been in a relationship for the past three years. Everything is going fine, except for his sister. I feel she does not like me. Whenever I am around, she barely talks to me. I have asked my guy about her behaviour, but he tells me she takes a while to open up and strike a conversation with others. I do not get good vibes from her.

Dear Janaki,
Believe what your guy is telling you. Some people take time to open up and make friends. His sister may be an introvert, so what you find odd is the way she is. It does not mean that she does not like you. Give her time to be comfortable with you.

Diana will solve it!
