It’s normal to experience the falls and ups of a relationship, but when everything starts to crumble, you will feel empty.
Two of the most fundamental signs that your husband isn’t in love with you are bitterness and confusion coming from him.
Even though every relationship is different, through this article you’ll get to know the main signs and get over this situation!
Here are 13 signs your husband isn’t in love with you:
1. He isn’t impressed by you or what you do/say
It’s known that during a long-term relationship, dynamics change a lot.
If both of you don’t keep reflecting on yourself and working on yourself for better, even marriage will be hard.
So, if your husband tries to slowly pull away and ignores everything that you do, he might have started to fall out of love.
To be more specific, to him now everything seems very ordinary and he refuses to meet your emotional needs.
🔺In this situation, we advise you to be open with him and show how you’re feeling about the situation.
Yet, avoid putting all the blame on him because that won’t have any positive results.
2. His interaction with you seems forced
In a healthy relationship, the interaction between two people should be genuine.
When your husband isn’t in love with you, he avoids hanging out with you and when he does it, feels like he’s forced to do it.
🔺To define whether he has already fallen out of love with you, try to reflect on whether he’s interested to make plans with you.
If he already goes out with his friends or other entourage and makes time but never for you, he has started to look for love elsewhere.
3. He becomes the opposite of the empath
One of the most fundamental signs that your husband isn’t in love with you is when his energy shifts.
Indeed, his energy will shift from positive to negative. It will feel like your presence only bothers him and he is constantly zoned out.
On the other hand, you’ll realize that he’s constantly rude to you and makes jokes just to hurt your feelings.
There is no balance between giving you the cold shoulder and making fun of you just to belittle you.
🔺If you’re experiencing this for some time, it’s better to talk with him and tell him that you won’t tolerate this behavior anymore.
But, if you don’t know how to set your boundaries, a relationship coach would help you to reflect properly and decide what you want from him.
4. He starts looking at other women
Sometimes when the relationship is turbulent you might tend to overthink and even romanticize it.
Hence, when your husband isn’t in love with you, he will keep looking for other women to quench his desires.
Other than this, he will even become a porn addict and avoids being affectionate with you.
In addition, he will make jokes and say how he doesn’t find you sexually attractive.
Or, he might just cross your boundaries by talking sexually about these women and what he would do with them.
He’s doing that on purpose to create a wall between you two before turning the cold shoulder.
5. He starts to become quite secretive
Hmm, when your partner or husband or boyfriend becomes mysterious for no reason, that’s not a good sign.
Everyone in a relationship can have secrets and maybe a time when they don’t feel like being vulnerable with their partner.
But, if he is constantly coming late or lying to you and hiding his phone from you then he might probably be out of love with you and cheating.
🔺Until you don’t have any concrete evidence, it’s better to communicate with him.
If he constantly ignores this conversation or denies that he is hiding something from you, it’s better to seek professional help.
A marriage counselor might help you to define this issue and work on these issues without making a whole mess.
6. He keeps avoiding deep convos
Saying that your husband just avoids deep conversations isn’t a definite sign that he isn’t in love with you.
Marriage is a bumping road and sometimes both of you might lose the spark and have a short blockage.
But when he combines avoiding talking about your future or your relationship and not validating your feelings, he might be falling out of love.
🔺It’s important to be thoughtful and understanding while you open a conversation with your husband regarding this topic.
Communication in this situation isn’t a very easy task because it might be taken as an accusation.
- Other than communicating your feelings/needs, try self-care and keep your distance for a period.
7. He stops saying “I love you” and doesn’t say it with the same intensity as before
How do you know that your husband doesn’t love you anymore?
One of the main signs that your husband doesn’t love you anymore is reducing his affection and saying “I love you” to you.
Yet, while defining this sign you should be careful because not every man has the same love language and personality.
If he barely said it before but give you gifts or cared about you then it doesn’t mean that he isn’t in love with you.
But, if he stops prioritizing you, is strange around you, and doesn’t say I love You like he used to say, then he might not be in love with you anymore.
You can take a step back and reflect on your relationship.
Check whether you’ve made something to hurt him or what caused the change in his behavior.
8. He starts to say “You” and “Me” instead of us
Yes, when he starts to act like this is mine and this is yours, something has changed.
If he constantly starts to use the words I and You then he has started to distance himself physically and emotionally.
Also, he finds it difficult to work with you regarding your mutual goals.
If you encounter yourself in this type of situation, you should communicate your feelings and needs.
- Let him know about your perspective and get to know what he thinks;
- Try to find a mutual solution that would be beneficial for both of you;
9. He doesn’t appreciate or value your presence or you
A man who is in love with you, even after the honeymoon phase will try to show appreciation.
Unless he wasn’t sure about his feelings, then he might play hot and cold after marriage.
Also, depending on his personality and attachment style, he might stop loving you because the relationship doesn’t seem fun anymore.
That’s why he becomes irritated by you or your actions and doesn’t seem interested in what you’re saying.
10. He is distant and not affectionate at all
When a relationship gets toxic and there’s a lack of communication one of the partners will pull away.
But, if you’ve always tried to communicate your feelings with him and you were compassionate then he might have started to lose feelings.
Many sources and people might say that feelings don’t change. Yes, they change if you don’t feed and take care of them.
🔺Thus, go back to the roots of your relationship. Check what made you happy as a couple and try to fill out the void.
11. You feel empty and constantly confused in this relationship
When your husband doesn’t love you anymore, you will feel stuck in this relationship.
What causes this confusion and emptiness is the lack of emotional and physical connection that you might have.
For example, whenever you want to spend time with him or try to be intimate, he refuses or gives some mere reasons.
You can sense the coldness and this also impacts your self-confidence.
If you’re feeling hollow, it’s better to have ‘the conversation’ with him and express how you feel.
12. He isn’t vulnerable or open with you anymore
When you feel that emotional disconnection and you feel like you’re not his go-to person anymore, you start to panic.
Well, one of the signs that your husband isn’t in love with you is when he stops to share his problems or deepest desires with you.
If he was always like this maybe this is a sign of his past trauma (whether family or relationship trauma).
But, if he suddenly stops being open to you and doesn’t discuss with you how he feels or thinks, this might be a sign of a lack of love.
One of the members of our staff has been reading the book “Breaking the Cycle” by Paul Friedman and is 10/10.
It teaches you to strengthen your boundaries and find yourself during this hard time.
13. He tries to change you and avoids talking about it
A loveless marriage is the worst experience ever.
When he doesn’t find you interesting enough anymore and you find yourself blaming yourself for being like that.
In this case, you’re always looking for answers and trying to change yourself because he:
1. Doesn’t listen to you when you talk.
2. He laughs at your desires, ideas, or wishes.
3. He immediately finds to do something else by himself or with other people.
It’s better to talk about this with him and say “I’ve noticed that lately, we don’t spend much time together. Can we talk about how can we arrange a date?”
What to do and how to accept that your husband doesn’t love you?
One thing that you should try to do when your husband isn’t in love with you anymore is to not panic and freak out.
Indeed, it’s easier said than done.
Hence, where you find yourself surrounded by negativity, the best thing you can do is to take a deep breath and have a clear mind.
1. Let yourself feel these emotions.
You cannot perceive the situation most righteously if you don’t allow yourself to feel and touch reality.
Because when you keep pushing reality away, you will start to romanticize your husband and situation.
Thus, take the situation as it is. Once you embrace it, you’ll become stronger because you’ll be subjective.
The book The Marriage Counseling Workbook will provide you with real-life examples, of how you can work on these feelings.
2. Don’t be shy and afraid to communicate your feelings and talk to your husband.
Communication is always the key to solving problems in a relationship.
No one is a mind reader and he might not be in a position where he can reflect properly on his behavior.
Take your time and give him space to reflect on himself too. Take some days apart from one another and see how things will go from there.
3. Work on yourself.
Even if you have nothing to do with the fact that his feelings changed, never stop working on yourself.
Don’t accept the victim mentality. Crying or begging won’t help you to bring him back.
Only giving him the space he needs or wants and becoming your best version of yourself, will either help you move on or bring him back.
~Try new hobbies.
~Change your lifestyle.
~Try everything new, something that you’ve never done before.
~Try to journal more and listen to different podcasts.
~Hang out with new people.
~Try to put yourself in his shoes and what is that thing he is lacking.
Yet, remember to not force this process or put pressure on him or yourself. Let it flow.

It aims to help you create a healthy relationship.
It can help you to create a strong foundation but cannot guarantee to make you or him fall in love again.
