Read “The Love Dare”. It is focused on making sure you uphold your end - without judging what he’s doing. At the end of it, I guarantee that romance will be alive and well, and his head will be spinning at what an amazing catch he has and wanting to make up lost years with you 💓
I hear you. No idea how but I hope there are some useful answers on here for us both 😟
My husbands idea of romance is sex. It puts me off. Then when I tell him I’m not in the mood he thinks I don’t love him and has a sook.
Maybe you should try being more affectionate? Hold his hand, give him a random kiss or hug etc. it might encourage him to reciprocate? Also, let him know how you’re feeling?
So many of us in these marriages that arent satisfying - for us and/or our partners!!
My heart broke a little bit more tonight - this growing sense of resentment from him. Sometimes it only takes a few words for the real underlying feelings to show. We don’t connect anymore, hugs feel forced, no flirting & if I do I’ll often be rejected.
From what I’m hearing, he thinks I take sides with the kids against him, that I don’t respect him, & from tonight’s exchange - apparently I think I’m better than him.
If he really knew me, he’d know that’s so far from the truth.
I just googled parallel marriage - yep that’s us for sure. Emotional emptiness. Just living the dream that’s really a farce.
Have you tried doing those things yourself?
