Football season is upon us and women everywhere are starting to feel the strain it is putting on their relationships. In case you are unfamiliar with what a football widow is, Urban Dictionary has the answer for you. It is defined as, “A woman who must cope with the temporary death of her relationship during football games.” Now, if you are like most women, you do not want to forbid your husband from watching football all day, but you do not want to take on all of the shared responsibilities on your own either. So, what do you do? There are a couple of solutions that may surprise you that have been proven to be very effective at helping women everywhere avoid becoming a football widow.
The Direct Approach
Being direct with your man will only work for some women but it is effective if you can get your man to take his eyes off the screen for two seconds.
You need to make sure that you tell him that you are not opposed to him watching football but there are certain expectations that come along with that privilege. He needs to understand that you need him to do things around the house and with the kids while he is cheering on the home team.
Most men who this approach works on will agree to do whatever you want them to do as long as you leave them alone when the game is on.
The Indirect Approach
There is another approach that will work on just about any man to get him to do whatever it is you need him to do. Relationship expert, Michael Fiore created a course called Text the Romance Back that helps women learn how to put the romance back in their relationships.
The course works by helping women learn how to put together simple text messages that drive their husbands crazy and make them do anything they want.

Becoming a football widow sucks all of the romance out of your relationship and makes it miserable. You do not have to feel like you are in a relationship by yourself this year. Make sure to choose either the direct approach or indirect approach and use one of them with your husband. You will be able to get everything done that is supposed to be done and he will get to still watch football. If you choose the indirect approach you will probably even get some halftime romance that you so badly need.
