Separate hobbies might bring frustration into a relationship

If it so happens that partners aren’t interested in the same things, having separate hobbies might be beneficial. But what if this fails and the other person starts to voice frustrations about your dissimilar activities?

When a spouse complains about different interests, it might be because they feel like the other person is often choosing their favorite pastime over spending quality time together. They may not even realize that they yearn for their significant other’s attention and they might gradually grow resentful of whatever the other is passionate about.

This basic need that becomes unmet can cause disagreements at the slightest inconvenience. The partner with a consuming hobby might start wondering why the other lashes out every time they go to build a puzzle or turn on a sports game.

It happens because, at some level, they feel neglected and would like to feel as important to their loved ones as their hobby is. As humans, we crave to be safe and secure in our relationships, and when we are nowhere near being the priority, we might start to feel uncertainty. Dealing with it might be difficult and often results in anxiety, edginess, and hostility.

Moreover, time-demanding hobbies tend to raise issues like deciding how to divide household chores, allocating time for themselves, and ensuring to have fun as a couple. The person who’s left with all the responsibilities might start to feel like they’re treated unfairly.

With some creativity, separate hobbies and relationships can be perfectly compatible

One way to avoid this is to give as much attention to marriage as they do to their hobbies. It might be a good idea to monitor how much time and money one spends on solo activities and put aside the same amount for when the two are together.

It’s also important to maintain respect throughout this, even though there might be tension or sorrowful feelings surrounding it. Experts advise letting the significant other know that you want to spend more moments together.

Instead of allowing frustration to take over, brainstorm some ideas for dates and movie nights and ask the partner to plan their schedule around them. This will make them feel like they can still enjoy their own things and nurture the relationship.

Another option is to try finding common interests that both of you might have missed out on from the beginning. Sometimes having completely separate interests can make people grow apart, so figuring out fun things you can do together can bring you closer.

Commenters were saying that the wife wasn’t wrong for wanting a divorce and that the puzzle was the least of their problems
