Do Husbands Ignore Their Wives on Purpose?

in Husband

Why do husbands ignore their wives? This is a question that many wives find themselves asking after some time has passed during their marriage. The appearance of a husband ignoring his wife may have started to develop, but chances are he is not ignoring his wife on purpose.

A husband probably wants to spend time with his wife as well, but there just seems to be something that got in the way; that something is a quest to get something done. It doesn't matter what it is, he just needs it to be perfect and complete.

Focusing on one task is why men are so good at hunting and similar tasks that seem to take time to become just right. When a man is out hunting, his quest is to bag the perfect animal and that is what he is going to do. His life during that time he is spending on the stand is all about hunting and this is what he is absolutely focused on. If you were to try and talk to him while he is on the stand hunting, then he is going to appear to be ignoring you on purpose, but the real problem is, he cannot concentrate on what you are saying to him. You see, men are not able to multitask like women.

When you ask your husband why he doesn't spend more time with you, he may be seeing you as a barricade just getting in the way of his latest quest. Instead of becoming a barricade offer to help him on his latest project. While helping him out, don't talk about kids, feelings, or anything like that; just make it pure guy time. This will allow him to get his project done sooner and he will start to view you as a friend instead of a obstacle. Once he's done with his quest for the day you will have a husband that is more than willing to listen to you and possibly even be willing to go shopping with you.
