Let's face it – only a few lucky couples love each other till death do them part. Sometimes people just fall out of love. Some couples manage to preserve their marriage because love gives way to friendship and affection, but often there is nothing left when love is gone. Here are five signs your husband doesn't love you anymore and your marriage is in danger.
He's avoiding you. So, you husband has started to spend extra hours at work. He's always busy with new activities that doesn't involve you, he doesn't pick up the phone when you call him (and sometimes even turns his phone off) and it takes him hours to respond to your texts. To put it short, he is trying to avoid any interaction with you. That's not how people behave around someone they love.
He's not physically affectionate anymore. Lack of physical affection can manifest in different ways. Lack of sex is the most evident one, but there are more subtle changes that should make you worried. Maybe your husband declines public displays of affection. Maybe he is irritated even by casual touching. Maybe you don't fall asleep cuddling/spooning anymore. Physical intimacy is very important in a romantic relationship, and when love is gone, physical intimacy is gone, too.
You're always the problem. Whenever any of you starts to feel particularly unhappy in your marriage, it's always your fault. Whatever is wrong, he always says that you're the problem. The truth is, marriage is a shared responsibility. If there are any problems, both spouses are responsible. Your husband's attempts to make a scapegoat of you are certainly not the signs of his love.
He doesn't support and encourage you. Spouses are supposed to be each other's support system, but you feel like you can't rely on your husband anymore. He is never happy for your success and achievements, he never compliments you, he is constantly criticizing you and making nasty comments. When you're feeling down, he doesn't bother to comfort you. In other words, he doesn't care about you anymore.
His physical appearance has changed. A lot of people, both men and women, change their physical appearance along with dramatic changes in their lives. If your husband has changed his hairstyle, hair color, or wardrobe, traded his glasses for contacts, or begun to work out, he might be preparing for his new single life. Of course, a new haircut does not necessarily mean that your husband has fallen out of love with you. But if it is accompanied by one of the signs listed above, you should start worrying.
