He never picks up the phone….

by Rod Smith

“What do I do if I live a long way away from my husband and when the time goes on I phone him and he does answer the phone. Then, as the time goes by, if I phone him he will never pick up the phone. What does this blog4symbolize to a married woman who has husband like this?”

A lack of conversation (meaningful or otherwise), having limited time together, and experiencing avoidance from your husband is, I am sure, most painful for you. Living as a victim is surely worse.

Go to your husband. Have a face-to-face conversation. Assess the condition of your marriage. Many couples survive intentional, temporary separations, for matters of work, travel or study – and come out better off for it. Passive acceptance of your husband’s silence will get you and your marriage nowhere.
