My wife walked out when I asked her what was for dinner

DEAR DEIDRE: I THOUGHT my marriage was rock-solid until my wife walked out on me.

She won’t speak to me or return my calls or texts. I’m 63 and she’s 60.

She recently lost her mother, which obviously was hard.

After we got back from the funeral, I asked her what was for dinner. That’s when she went.

She’s always done the cooking and looked after me.

I am in turmoil without her. I don’t know where she is.

DEIDRE SAYS: It may be that she looks after you but couples are supposed to support one another.

Perhaps asking her to cook on the day of her mother’s funeral was enough for her to feel as if she has been taken for granted.

Try again to reach her and if there is no joy, call a relative to help.

Impress upon her how much she is valued and make it clear you will do all you can to help her from now on.

You could start by using this time to clean the house and cook some meals to show her you mean it.
