My husband doesn't seem to want to be around me...

My husband and I just got married a few months ago. He works two jobs and I go to school 5days a week and work 4 nights a week. On his evenings and days off he is ALWAYS with his friends and he even works/has lunch with them 5days a week. I desperately seek his affection and companionship, I don't know how to communicate that to him. All I want to do is come home after a long day and see my wonderful husband, I realize it is important to spend time with others, but its excessive. I feel like I never see him.

  • I have a great book I'd love to suggest to you. However, it rubs a LOT of women the wrong way, and it's written by a Christian.... however, if you're interested in the title, and reading an excerpt, send me a message =)

  • Prepare for the Goddess' crash course in Commuication for Couples 101:

    Sit his ass down and tell him EXACTLY what you just told us. Lines of communication will open up! I promise! Good luck with this, sweetie. You're newly weds. There's always an adjustment period.
