The two of you have to rebuild trust and respect. You have to take baby steps. The first step is to get to know each other again. Then start to court each other.
Since our last marriage therapy, I have tried to get to know about My Bride. What do you like to do?
What do you like to do outside of work and family?
If you could do anything at all, what would it be?
“I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know”
I really have been trying.
My Bride had not engaged in any way.
How do I get to know her if she doesn’t seem to be interested in me?
Are we really working on anything if she won’t interact with me?
I have made a concerted effort to hide my negative feelings on front of her. When I asked her how she thought things have been going, she said, “A little bit better.”
I thought things were dramatically better.
She came up and grabbed my hand when we left dinner last night. I was so excited! It was a few hours later that I asked what she thought.
A little bit better
That’s a little disheartening.
