Not listening and not hearing are NOT the same thing. No, women don't have poor hearing as a gender. In fact,per the source below, females have a more acute sense of hearing than males. A specific person's listening skills may or may not be poor, and a lot of that will have to do with their level of interest in what they're supposed to be listening to. If your wife doesn't listen it's because she chooses not to pay attention to your words OR she's unable to effectively take in and process what you say sometimes, due to some other factor (possibly too many things needing her attention, stress, exhaustion, or a psychological issue). As Happy-2 suggested, when there's something you need her to hear and remember, make sure she has. Talk to her face to face. Ask her to repeat what you said in her own words (to ensure she understood you and isn't just mimicking the sounds you made without comprehending the words).

I'd say go to a professional couples therapist. They can help. I wish you all the best.

Neither one of you are listening to the other. Take a course or read a book on effective conflict resolution and communication. A marriage counselor may be able to help, too.

i can see how that would work. My husband don't listen to me. so i toss in a key word every once in a while. And I request a repeat back. Tell me what i just said please. what where we talking about again. i forgot. use chat only! LOL on another sort of funny note. Most of our converstations can be done visually since body language is 2/3rds of our communication .. words are not that important!

Women are not hearing deficient. They can hear anything you say which is stupid from a mile away. No they are not hearing deficient. the womans has this ability to selective hearing. That means she hears what she wants to hears. Apparently the womans you know don't want to hear you.

This is easily solved by having your conversations face to face and distraction free, and by modeling good listening behavior by making eye contact, nodding your head, and paraphrasing the things she tells you.
