My husband has never been a loud person but when the kids were around it wasn't easy to notice this. He wouldn't speak much but his presence was always felt. We would all jog once in a while in the afternoon and he loved to have everyone participate in most activities. When the kids left, it felt so different and so at first loneliness started to creep in but over time, I learned how to make him talk when he wanted to. He is now more responsive and even initiates most of the conversations. We have managed to have each others' backs.

That's really awesome!  My husband and I are still struggling some with communication.  Do you have any tips to offer?  How did you get him to talk to you more?  I would really love it if my husband talked to me more, and I'd love it even more if he initiated some of the conversations!

My husband isn't the loud type as well, and I have learned to just let him be. He does not like being forced to talk just for the sake of it and whereas it may be difficult at first, you learn to let the conversations flow as time goes by, Striking that balance is an achievement that all of us aim for.

Join your husband to what he likes to do. Even trying to have an interest in what our husbands are doing will make them talk. However, as girlchild said, we must know how to balance it because when we push our husbands too hard, then they might totally shut down.
