Value, respect and equality make for a solid relationship. And when it comes to marriage and companionship, these three attributes matter the most so far as happiness in a relationship is concerned. Most often, it is when either spouse takes the other for granted and most important, the love for granted is when there is need to take corrective measures. Here are how to spot whether your man is taking you for granted:
It’s expected of you all the time that you will be at his beck and call whenever desired. From arranging the bath linen to the bed linen to arranging the dinner table. And not a single offer from him when it comes to sharing the chores.
2. Spending time with kids
The onus of picking and dropping your kids is always on you because it is imperative. And you are never asked whether the kids are to be dropped by him on occasions to give you that free time.
3. Honey, I am too tired
It’s always my job, my life – for him. You are always expected to ask him about his day, but how the day was spent at your end is never mentioned. And all you hear him say is, “I had a long day. I am too tired to think about anything.”
4. My world, my friends
He doesn’t seem interested in you talking about your likes, dislikes, your friends. In turn, you spend all your time listening to him talking about his colleagues, his friends and his outings.
5. Doesn’t keep dates for you
You always end up alone on occasions important to you. He never has time or is simply too busy to accompany you to your friends’ place.
