It hurts to be ignored.
When your husband speaks, do your best to pay attention much of the time and respond appropriately.
(If this is a chronic problem for you, ask yourself if you are too busy, have misplaced priorities, or perhaps you are trying to get his attention. I have a problem with hearing others when I’m concentrating on something. Paul and I have talked this out and he’s willing to make sure I’ve heard him before feeling ignored.)
One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.
