dear Ricky, hi and nice to get your comment.
I have just replied to Fhar on the comment she has posted, where some of what I have said may relate to your comment.
What you have said always seems to be the other way around, where the husband won't tune into what his wife is saying, and only concerned about all the minor details of the marriage/relationship.
So the big question is why do people lose the connection between each other, because when we are first going out, both of us are 'all ears' and talk about anything, but over time this eases off.
Well everybody will have their own reason, but surely there must be a common theme, so could it be living together 24/7 for years, or perhaps one of them is more dominant, or one of them only thinks about their own needs first and then the family come second.
I can not say and won't enter into the argument, unless it does start, so really I can't give you a reason, however there were points in my marriage which I could mention, but that would take away your comment. Geoff.
