Upon researching for hours on dealing with a spouse you are no longer attracted too, I was unable to find solid research to use in this post. Most of the information read, did suggest that more women deal with this problem than we think and feel trapped and unhappy. As Christian women, we said "For better or worse," and made a conscious decision to love and honor our spouses but with lack of attraction it, can be challenging to both love and honor.
There is no easy solution but with God all things are possible! Here are (3) three suggestions to help women who are facing this challenge.
Pray Before Approaching Your Husband
Michal (David's wife), approached David in her frustration before praying first and her life was never the same. The funny thing is that 1 Samuel 18:20 says that Michal loved David, which is the only place where a woman's love for a man is recorded in the Bible.
Practice what you preach!
I don't know about your husband, but if I gently mention something that needs improving in his life, he quickly points out things I need to change or work on. Before we can approach our husbands our losing weight, taking more baths etc. Think of what he will say about you.
Remember Why You Said, "I Do"
Reminisce on how you met, why you were attracted to him in the first place, and what makes him a good husband, father, son, and friend. Doing this will bring a smile to your face.
Word of Caution: If you husband is verbally and physically abuse, this may cause your lack of attraction, and the information provided above may not be enough to fix the problem in your marriage. Please seek professional help.
If you have other tips, please feel free to share. I look forward to connecting this week!
