You have to ask yourself why you're with the person in the first place and the direction you want your relationship to go in. Did your spouse do something you don't like?

It may be because you are unsure of your partner's sex. I would hate them too if I were locked into a relationship and still unsure whether I married a man or a woman.

Take a piece of paper and write down a list of positives and negatives about your partner, this should give you a good idea, but if you hate them then you may be in the wrong relationship and moving forward maybe the best option.

Maybe it's not the most healthy relationship if you don't like them. I'm not going to give advice, but there could be possible visitations with a relationship therapist?

hate is such a strong word, identifying the reasons why these emotions have started to blossom is a good start and working on the root cause will help to build a better relationship.

Maybe you have spent so much time with them that you start to get annoyed with some of their habits.

Ask yourself why. Examine your feelings. What is it about them that is pushing your buttons? What is it about the relationship that isn't working? Is there a lingering resentment left over from a previous experience with this person? Were you unable to communicate how you felt about something that happened in the past? There could be any number of reasons, talking it over with them or with an independant 3rd party might be the key to overcoming the way you feel.

Husband or wife? I'm assuming you wonder why/how people can hate their spouse? It can be for so many reasons, such as falling out of love for the person, they may have been unfaithful or lied about something etc. It's different in each marriage.

Well I'm divorced so it would be easy to give lots of reasons! That said, hate is a very strong and negative emotion and one I try to avoid at all costs, it's detrimental to all concerned...and life is far too short. Move on and be happy :)

The reason could be as simple as you are living a life full of compromises and since you have no one else to blame your spouse is the easy target or the option is they really deserve the hate and dislike and you have been bottling up the dissonance for so long that it has now changed into hatred

Only you know why you hate/dislike your Husband/Wife. You can start by answering this question my making a list of the things that you don't like about your significant other.

I understand that it could be difficult, but maybe sometimes we just don't forgot to show appreciation?

That's hard to answer from this end as no one really knows your relationship. Consider things that may have happened to cause these feelings and try talking them out with your spouse as many times communication, or lack of, can be an issues.

Maybe because he/shes do something bad and you don't like it, or your feeling change about your husband/wife and you can't be with them anymore

Only you can answer that question. Reflect on what brought you two together in the first place and then what has changed. That may help set you in the right direction to finding your answer.

Satisfaction and connectivity are important things in a relation between couples. It's not just physical. You need to be satisfied mentally with your partner. Satisfied why the way he acts at the time of crisis, satisfied by the way he handles responsibility. Satisfied by the way their partner respects their in laws. Satisfied by the way he think life is about. Connectivity will resolve their inner issues. If someone have to wait, they need to be connected to understand the reason so that the issue doesn't get bigger. If these things are missing then a husband or wife can hate their partner and that's valid too.

There could be a number of reasons why and to be honest, you are the only person that can know why, you need to stay true to yourself, spend some time away or get some headspace to yourself, and try to figure out what is going on, you could try writing it down, and after that you can figure out if you can work through whatever issues you're having with your significant other, talk to them about it too, stay true to yourself and be honest!

They may have revealed traits about themselves that you did not know about before and they may be causing strain due to this.

Do you feel that you shouldn´t hate but love them? I have good and bad news for you: You rarely can control your feelings towards someone. But on the other hand, that means you´re not a bad person for feeling a certain way. We will always be frustrated by the ones we love, and attachment can give rise to resentment. It´s okay to hate your spouse a little bit, as long as it doesn´t consume most of your feelings towards him or her. If that is the case, and the frustration is the biggest part in your relationship, I would overthink what you can do about it and if not, reconsider that relationship.

This question cannot be answered because it's a deep problem and there can be lots of reasons. You can try and contact me or any other psychologist if you want the answer

You probably know the answer, it's just hidden in you. Did he/she make something you hate? Are you sure you love him/her?

Hate is something which comes one when either there is not much love, or way tooo much of live. Any one of them can be the reason, but let me tell you hate never helped anyone so stay together stay in love, that is best..

In any relationship, there are things we get to know about the other. In a marriage, everything is a compromise and a give and take. A wife may hate her husband because she feels he is not being supported or she is feeling taken for granted by her husband. Ill feeling start to develop, begins with hurt, then anger and ends with hatred. The husband can feel the same for his wife. Many of the hatred also comes from miscommunication. In any relationship, especially in a marriage, strong communication is needed to make a strong bond. Hatred will be diminished from open communication.

I hate my husband at times because he is abusive, he is demanding and everything should revolve around him. It is just not fair. And I hate it.

Write down or observe your emotions as to why you hate your spouse. Sometimes due to some memories buried in subconscious mind may also lead to triggering of thoughts. Sit and discuss calmly which may help to understand each other better
