sdxz554 :  It’s the age old “I want you to want to do X” problem! I wish I had a solution to it as well. I don’t think there is one unless there’s a genuine shift in priorities. I want my SO to want to spend time with me more than he wants to golf. That isn’t going to happen. So you either basically accept it, or they make a change in their behavior (but you still know they’d rather be golfing). It’s never going to be what you want it to be unless they change how they feel. I have a feeling that happens pretty rarely.

I think it is fair for you to be upset. It sounds like you are hurt because you feel like golfing is a priority over you. And that’s not fair. Your husband’s hobbies shouldn’t come before spending time with you. I think he needs to invest a little more into the relationship.

You shouldn’t have to ask your husband to spend time with you every time you two spend time together. He should be valuing you more.

I hope counselling works out for you two.
