Husband Doesn't Want to Hold Or Touch My Hand
This Experience caught my attention last night. I usually stay with the Sexless Marriage Experience, but feel that the lack of affection has eroded my very soul.
My husband is not a touchy feeling type of person (his words)
We attended a funeral of a dear cousin last week ... Everybody who was walking down the aisle behind the casket were showing each other a form of connection, whether that was holding hands, or embracing as they walked in sorrow. When I reached out for my husband's hand .. he pulled back ... then reluctantly held mine for about 15 seconds .. that was it ... even in my sorrow, I felt the pain of being alone, with him, once again.
I like to reach out and touch him, his hair, his shoulders, and he "tolerates" my touch until he squirms away... When he is sick I like to touch his hand and God For bide if I move my fingers on his hand, he tells me straight out .. "I don't like to be touched" ... "please stop that doesn't feel good to me"
My grandchildren love to hold and touch my hand . The human touch of hand in hand, or hand to hand is so comforting .. I pray in my old age that my grandchildren will continue to touch my hands .
No matter the age, "most people", I believe, do like to be touched... whether we are sick or healthy, we all thrive on the human touch ... Hand Holding is something that everybody can do, but they don't, especially my husband ....
