My husband gives more attention to our puppy than to me
DEAR DEIDRE: OUR new puppy gets more attention from my husband than I do. He thinks nothing is wrong and says I’m being silly.
I’m 27 and he is 29. We’ve been married for three years. He never spends time with me. If I’m sat watching TV, he is off playing video games.
It’s always me that makes the effort with conversation, holding hands or kissing.
I have tried to talk to him about it but nothing changes. I’m sad and lonely. Part of me wants to get away from him.
DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds like your husband struggles with intimacy – the puppy probably feels like a safe outlet.
Talking to him about childhood memories could give you both insight.
Keep showing him affection and try to meet him halfway.
Suggest he finds a game you might like – and there must be a TV show you can watch together if you search.
