My husband doesn't talk to me

Aug 23, 2012, 06:22 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I have been married for eight years and have two kids. My husband and I are both working.

Of late, when my hubby is at home, he has nothing to say to me. He is either busy with the kids, watching TV or chatting on his laptop. But when he is out of town, he appears cordial as he phones to ask about home and the kids. Why this change in his behaviour towards me at home?

Dear Apurna,
Looks like your husband has decided to shut down. Is there something bugging him? Are things okay at his work front? May be he is going through a mid-life crisis. If he is spending time chatting on his laptop, find out who he is talking to. Try to spice things up for him on the homefront. Maybe you need to talk about things that interest him more. But have you asked him why he doesn’t talk to you? If all this fails, maybe you should start doing things away from him and he will wonder what you are up to?
