Bad Body Odor

I have been married going on 22 years. Several times I have tried to delicately mention “you have BO”.
She does not shower or bath regularly. Her excuses continue to justify, she doesn’t feel the need to wash. Her body odor gets so bad sometimes, I can’t even walk by her. How do I discuss the need for her to at least bath regularly, and be sensitive?

    It sounds like you have been sensitive and have tried being caring in your delivery of your message about her body odor. You have been married 22 years and I think you are at point in your relationship that you can be even more straight forward with her. Sit down and tell her exactly how you feel and that the body odor bothers you and that you would love for her to bathe just a little more. I’m sure you are not the only person in her life that notices this issue. If she works or goes into an office, it must impact those around her. She may not realize how bad her body odor really is because no one has told her. I doubt this is a deal breaker or that you would be contemplating divorce over something like this but something that does need to be addressed.
