I have just been married. It's an arranged one and unfortunately, due to our jobs, we both stay in different cities. Though I am planning to relocate soon, I am afraid because I feel he is ignoring me now, and might not even care if I exist or not if I move there. He rarely calls me. He never texts me. I am trying to make this relationship work but I feel hopeless with his behavior, what am I supposed to do?


I do not know how arranged marriage works, and I do not know the cultural impact of your arrangement. In general, marriage works better if you can live together. Having said that, lots of people live apart due to a variety of circumstances. Perhaps you and he can set some definite times to talk during the day. Maybe first thing in the morning and last thing at night before you go to bed. Throughout the day, text when you can, but don't expect an immediate answer. My husband and I both work. Just because he doesn't answer my texts doesn't mean he doesn't love me. He is busy at work, just as I am. He answers when he can, and I answer him when I can. When you don't live together, you must make a lot of adjustments. Have you talked to him about moving there, and your fears? Be open and honest. Let him know what you think and how you feel. You can't have a strong marriage without good communication.
