Boring Husband
Oct 21, 2013
We've been married over 8 years and we're only in our 40's but you'd think he's 85!!! I like to go and do things, he wants to stay at home and watch TV. The only time he laughs is when he's watching TV, talking with his parents or sister or when he's talking with the guys from church about football. There is no display of affection from him other than a kiss on the cheek. I want to cuddle but he doesn't! I want to go do something, out to dinner, shopping, out for a drive, to a movie, something and he just wants to stay at home. The house is clean, the laundry is done. Let's go do something!!!

Hi,
Was he like this before you married him?...
May be he has a strenuous job and is tired when he gets home or perhaps that is the way he is.
I have joined a number of things that I go to on my own or with friends as my husband doesn't want to do some of the things I do.
Talk to him, Tell him what you want and if he cant meet you half way then go out without him on your own or with friends.
Perhaps he will want to join you then. If he is tired or depressed then a visit to his Dr might help,

Solofelix.

Hi, if you are unhappy in the marriage you could consider leaving for awhile, stay with family or friends and let him ponder for awhile how he has taken you for granted. Hopefully he will realize that he needs to take care of your needs and not live in his own little world. I hope things work out for you.....

You need to get out more with friends, etc. and do some things. Don't want to waste your life just because he won't go out.

Hopefully he will come around....

Best of luck....

I was actually thinking about staying with a friend for a while and see what happens. I'm not sure he'd miss me!! It's not like we do anything together. So, all he'll miss is having someone to kiss on the cheek when he leaves in the morning.

First thing, I think it would help you if you dropped the word 'boring'. It's so negative.
Second, I agree with the others that you should start doing things alone or with your friends. He has his own buddies, right? So what are you waiting for? Third, it seems you (still) love him, despite everything, because you want this marriage to work, right? Have you expressed clearly to him how you feel about him? Or are you just waiting for him to read your mind? Don't pour it out angrily, but be honest and tell him and ask him what you guys should do, so the marriage doesn't fall apart.
