Your wife told you over and over again that she felt neglected. Finally, she just couldn’t take it anymore, walked out on you, and now you want to get your wife back. It is very noble of you to have worked your way up the corporate ladder so that you could give your wife everything that she wanted. However, sometimes material things are not enough – your wife married you – not your money.
Those nights when you were working late to impress your boss so that you could get that promotion you were looking for, was doing so much damage to your marriage. Your wife told you time and again that she would really like to spend more time with you, and you didn’t listen.
You both had your own thoughts about what was going on. You felt that you simply had to earn more and more money so that you and your wife could have all the good things in life. On the other hand, the more you worked, the less time you had for your wife. To her, it probably meant that you were losing interest in her.
In fact, you were so busy concentrating on your work that you hardly heard what your wife was saying to you – you ignored her pleas for attention. If you are prepared to slow down a bit on your workload, there is a chance to get your wife back.
To start off with, cancel all your meetings and everything else on your busy schedule, and make a booking at a hotel for you and your wife. Tell her that you are going to devote those days to her, so that you can talk about your problems. Let her know that you’ll have her undivided attention over those few days, and that things will be different at home afterwards. Then do it – give her your undivided attention – it’s all she wants.
Hear what our wife has to say to you. Really listen to what is making her so unhappy, and promise sincerely to do something about it. Make time for your wife – you’re married to her and not your job, remember.
Delegate some of your workload to other people, and give your wife more of your time. Make sure it is quality time – your aim is to make your wife happy again. Make her see just how special she is to you, and you won’t have a problem – you’ll get your wife back.
