Is it too much to ask?
My husband has made it clear to me that he no longer wants our relationship to be a close one. This is after I confronted him about how unhappy I am. He says he is doing a lot for me and the kids, the normal day to day things like buying food fetching the kids and bieng home and not out with friends all the time. He says I should be happy because other people he knows suffer in marriages. We dont do anything an average couple does like kissing and hugging and having sex and calling or sms's each other. This has been going on for months now and I am very confused. Do you think I'm being unreasonable to ask for a little attention from my own husband?
Maybe he is doing a lot, as he sees it, but, as you suggest, its in the Chores department, rather than the loving and caring division. Leaving aside for the moment your very understandable complaints, is HE happy in the mariage as it is, or could it be more satisfying for him, too ? COuld you possibly persuade him to join you in marriage counselling, emphasizing that this would be with the aim of benefitting both of you ?
