How do you deal with a spouse who won't listen to you?
I'm not talking physical abuse but I'm talking about a husband who just doesn't understand you?

The ultimate problem most likely is that neither one of you are getting your needs met by the other person. This causes the man to "shut down" emotionally, and the woman to talk through the problems from every possible angle. But with him shutting down and you talking, it doesn't work. It's like trying to play a basketball game using a football.
Make your child the center of your life and eventually your husband will want to be involved. Make all the plans with the child and if he wants to spend time with her he has to cooperate with you.
