Answer by Dr Chetan Nagpal: Though I understand that your husband’s ignorance is wrong, I think you need to look at the situation with a more open mind. Firstly, you need to understand that friendship is a need and perhaps you are having a difference of opinion with your husband because you don’t have as many friends as him. Secondly, try having a dialogue with him about your reservations and the fact that he’s constantly making you feel neglected even though it might be not deliberate.
It is extremely important to know if there’s a reason why he’s leaning towards his friends and choosing to spend time with them instead of you. Also, it is worthless to hold a grudge against his friends and to get jealous of them because they must not be even aware of the problems you are facing.
At times, it’s difficult for men to change their old ways, specially after getting married and I am sure your husband must be finding it hard to divide time between you and his friends. Talk it out with him and make him realize that you are facing an issue he’s not even informed about. All the best!
