My husband seems to be avoiding me

My husband and I have been married for three years now. Everything has been fine but lately, it seems like he’s been actively avoiding me. He works a regular job so he’s out during the day. Evenings aren’t that different because he comes home, has something to eat, and then goes out either to talk to the neighbour or all the way to the shops saying he needs to buy something. He’ll come back after eight and we can do at that time is have dinner, shower, and sleep. If he stays indoors he’ll be glued to his phone playing video games or watching movies or football.

Several times now I’ve tried to find out what the problem is but that didn’t bear any fruit. There are times household chores get overwhelming but he doesn’t offer to help at all. He doesn’t work on Sunday but after church, he just sleeps or goes out to the shops. There’s a day he said he was going to the shops and I asked him to come back with groceries for supper and he assured me he’d be back in good time. He came back at 8 pm yet he’d left the house at 4 pm!

That particular incident left me really annoyed and I told him I was tired of constantly repeating myself to an adult. It didn’t go down well with him and we went for several days without talking to each other. I’m falling out of love with him and I feel like walking out of this marriage. There’s just no improvement on his side and I don’t know how much longer I can do this. How should I handle this situation?

A mom, a lover of family, a thinker, and friend of Christ. Writing brings it all together!
