How to get a man to shower???

my husband is laid off and well he feels he doesn't need to keep clean...he has not showered in 2 weeks and yet he still flirts with me like I should just want to have, that is not happening... but he does not "get it" and yes I have talked to him about it but he just ignores me

  • I don't know what to tell you if withholding sex doesn't work. He's being real disrespectful to you by not showering. Is he depressed? Sometimes we all get that “I don't care” attitude, maybe that's his mindset. But, I do feel sorry for you :(

  • I'd be in the shower and tell him to get naked and get in so he can get lucky!

  • Pull a Gilbert Grape on him. Invite him into the water.

  • stop washn his clothes, he prob figures if his clothes r clean he doesnt need to worry bout himself, wen he starts really smelln hell take care himself, but invite into the water is also good.... but tell him ur not havn sex w him as well, him being dirty can give u infections... and that is not acceptable.
