My husband has changed a lot
Dear Diana, I am a 36-year-old married woman. I used to work and earn pretty well while my husband kept hopping from one job to another.
All was going well between us until I got pregnant and had to quit my job. I conceived after a long treatment and with lots of difficulty. Ever since we had our child, I’m seeing a drastic change in his behaviour towards me. He has become very insensitive. We haven’t had physical intimacy in more than a year now. He simply doesn’t talk anymore. I have directly spoken to him about this but his response remains numb. I’m worried about our son.
Maybe your husband is going through some severe stress. As you have given up your job and he does not have a stable one, you find him a changed man. Also with a kid, there are additional responsibilities. Maybe he needs a little push from you to snap out of it. Moreover all this stuff should have been talked about before having a child. At the same time, he cannot shirk responsibility. The kid is equally his responsibility as well. What is irritating him is the fact that he needs a steady income. All this while there was always you to fall back on. Now that comfort has gone and he is feeling the heat.
