Should I refuse to keep my husband company in the evening when he gets home from work, seeing as he completely refuses to put his phone away at all?

SW User
Yes. Keep us company instead, we won't use our phones. Oh wait ...馃

I worked with someone who would get irritated when her husband would watch a football game, she鈥檇 undress and walk around in front of him and disrupt his game.
SW User
[@16806,cherokeepatti] lol great idea, I'm sure the kids would love this on a Sat afternoon.. LOL LOL
cherokeepatti61-69, F
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] Might wanna save that idea for any time they are away.
CoffeeFirst56-60, F
Oh dear. That's unfortunate. Maybe the phone causes his ears and empathy to not work?
SW User
[@372602,CoffeeFirst] it's something like that
CoffeeFirst56-60, F
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] Turn off the wi fi before he gets home. That will buy you 5 min.
Flipper11151-55, M
Yes.

And if you are talking and he grabs his phone -stop mid sentence. Even mid word.

I can't understand why he would act like that. Am sorry. He doesn't deserve the company
SW User
[@4253,UpsideOutInsideDown] I'll show him this. HAHAHA
UpsideOutInsideDown36-40, M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] just show him the whole rest of the men in the world. He'll see there's no shortage of folk who'd eagerly swap with him!

OMG my wife is the same way and it drives me insane.
CoffeeFirst56-60, F
[@372263,Harmonium1923] Bummer. Flower emergencies?
PerthSurfer46-50, M
Ideally you should be able to talk to him about it and he'd want to find a compromise where he'd spend just a set amount of time on it then the rest with you. If he still can't give you his full attention as he keeps thinking about his phone then that would suggest a bigger issue.

The odd time I might get a works text message to say something has changed for tomorrow. But never get work emails at night.is he the boss if so maybe people need to know stuff for the next day if it's a shift work thing

SW User
[@873485,QuietEd2019] He has an iphone and they're the worst, even just sitting there all the alerts for wattsapp or whatever pop up and the phone is never quiet
QuietEd201926-30, M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] all smartphones are like that though :/
QuietEd201926-30, M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] you are soo beautiful too would be the highlight of my day coming home to spend time with you 鉂わ笍
SageWanderer70-79, M
Sounds like you need to find a diversion. Maybe a crafts class, exercising or something of the sort to get you out of the house. Make sure you are not at his call.
EnigmaticGeek61-69, M
I'd give almost anything to have someone in my life to come home to who wanted my company.

You deserve far better than you are getting from him.
DaveyWavey01M
Have you asked him what he鈥檚 doing in his phone?
DaveyWavey01M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] I see. Well why don鈥檛 you ask him to stop working?
SW User
[@939480,DaveyWavey01] 馃槀 馃槀 馃槀 I'm always asking him
DaveyWavey01M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] you need to encourage him then. Stand there with nothing but his favourite food, beer and a smile 馃槈
ragingfire31-35, M
If he doesn鈥檛 put his phone away then it鈥檚 no real company. He needs to pay attention. Let me give Stephen strange a call.
Is it just his way of unwinding from his day?
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] I bet that doesn鈥檛 feel great for you. At least you have a man with ambition. Schedule a date night without phones, maybe?
SW User
[@1011456,SeriouslyFlippant] Annual vacation is the only time it stops
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] That鈥檚 a long wait. 馃槙

Tough one that.. only you and he can decide... I am guessing you have tried talking to him about it? How you feel?

cherokeepatti61-69, F
well he is preoccupied, will he even notice if you aren鈥檛 there?
SW User
[@16806,cherokeepatti] I don't think he cares tbh.. isn't it terrible..
cherokeepatti61-69, F
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] yeah...he has a one-track mind but unfortunately it鈥檚 to the phone.

Grateful4you61-69, M
I would start making a habit of NOT being there in the evening eventually he might stop taking you for granted.
popmol22-25, M
no those people i hate the most like omg why you not enjoy with us (then sits on their phone!)
Rutterman41-45, M
Yes. You could also go "Lysistrata" on him to drive home the message.
SW User
[@121363,Rutterman] lol, how wold that help me though馃き
Rutterman41-45, M
[@435994,MightyAphrodite] Hopefully, that would get him to put the damn phone away, at least occasionally.
Beautywithin31-35, F
