Behind a Stale Marriage: 7 Reasons Why He Has Turned ColdJackie Bledsoe
Ever reach the point in your marriage where it feels stale? It lacks engaging conversation. The time you spend together is not very fun at all, and he seems distant and cold.
Where did this all come from? Why has he turned cold?
You may handle it one of two ways — by looking internally or externally. When you look internally, you begin to second guess yourself. You begin to wonder what you did, said, or if he no longer loves you.
When you look externally, you will begin to think the worst. He is not faithful. He doesn’t want to be with you, and he wants a divorce because there is someone else.
Are those extreme examples? I don’t know. Maybe neither are the reason he has turned cold.
Here are 7 reasons why he has turned cold.

Sometimes men get to a point where they need more. We need something to fight for, something to compete against, or some excitement. When we don't have any of that, we are searching. That search can be a tough place to be in, especially when the things that we used to fight for, compete against, or excite us are no longer good for our life. It can be an adjustment.

When you look up and you are not where you want to be, frustration, disappointment, and a sense of failure can heavily weigh on you. I've been there before, and my wife has been patient and praying for me. As a man, you want to be superman for your wife and kids. You want to meet all their needs and fulfill all their desires. Encourage him and remind him what is good.
