When your partner is not listening to you, or you feel like he or she isn’t listening, it can be one of the most devastating and soul-crushing things that can happen. You probably told your partner a million times that you don’t like being teased in front of family or friends. Same goes for not appreciating the sight of dirty dishes lingering in the sink for more than a day. Heck, you probably even told your partner you hate finding underwear lying around on the floor, and it still happens.
When you feel that your partner is no longer listening to you, you feel disrespected, ignored, and even unloved. To make matters worse, your partner doesn’t even have an idea that he or she is making you feel unloved.
Then you slowly come to the realisation that your partner may be cheating on you. You confirm your suspicions one way or the other, and the most difficult time in your life rears its ugly head.
Because of your partner’s consistent inability to pay attention to you and your needs because of infidelity, you want a divorce. Deep down, however, you know that whatever you say, it will just fall on deaf ears, so why bother, right?
The conversation about divorce can be difficult, let alone having a partner who doesn’t pay attention to you or even listen to you.
So how do you break the news to your partner?
