You might think everything’s okay in your marriage, but is it really? If any of these 9 situation apply to you, your husband could very possibly be unhappy.
1. The spark is gone.
You used to hold hands and look deep into each other’s eyes. You used to laugh at each other, just because you were so happy to be together. Then adult life happened. Working late, buying a house, having children, it all took a toll. But still, from time to time, you had the special moments that made you feel like you were kids again. If those are getting rarer by the minute, that might be a warning sign.
2. He’s not willing to work on the marriage.
You are willing to fight for what you had, but he isn’t. He uses the same old excuses, too tired, stressed out, I don’t like that you’re hanging out with my friend Gary so much: the classics. You just want to talk, to get to the bottom of what’s wrong and get over it, together, but he’s unwilling to try.
3. He has repeatedly and very clearly communicated with you that he isn’t happy.
This is a big one. One of the surest signs that your husband is unhappy in your marriage is that he has very clearly told you he is unhappy in your marriage. Now, don’t worry, often times men say silly, emotionally driven things they don’t mean — this is nothing a little, open, honest communication can’t fix, but it still can be very hard to hear for the first time.

4. He takes way too long to return your calls and texts.
Another classic sign: avoiding communication. If it takes your husband more than a few hours to respond to a call or text, that’s an issue. If, when he finally does respond, he sends you a copy and pasted message from his lawyer stating that he has no desire to maintain contact with you, that’s another red flag.
5. He moved out 3 months ago.
Wow, passive aggressive much? If he moves out of the house, he is being childish, playing hard to get, and forcing you to be the grown up in the situation.
6. He keeps having divorce papers sent to your office.
Admittedly, this one is kind of a mixed signal. On the one hand, he is technically saying he wants to legally end your marriage once and for all. On the other hand, though, he’s sending you something, all the girls at the office see it, they don’t know it’s divorce papers, maybe it’s a card? Maybe it’s chocolates. Those weekly divorce papers are the best thing to happen to your marriage in months.
7. He won’t stop bringing up that whole silly thing where you cheated on him with his best friend like once or twice.
You sleep with his friend Gary one or two or 12 times, and he won’t get over it! Again, showing not only that he is upset and unhappy, but immature. This is the man you love, though, so you have to press on.
8. Date night is a snooze.
If your last 3 date nights have ended with you being arrested for “violating a restraining order,” maybe things are starting to get a little too damaged to repair?
9. He is in a loving, committed relationship with a woman named Donna
It’s now been 2 years since he moved out, the divorce process keeps dragging on, mostly because you’ve been arrested so many times you haven’t been available to finalize your separation. You’re addicted to adderall, have lost custody of your children and your husband is in a committed, loving relationship with a woman named Donna, whom your kids have begun calling “new mommy.” If all this is true, your husband might be unhappy in your marriage.
