On another note...
I approached DH about couple counseling.
He wasn't happy and didn't talk to me for a full day.
I have hit my breaking point with this marriage. It feels like I live with my best friend who is my roommate, not my husband. I mean he IS my best friend and I LOVE him so much. I just need to feel love and appreciated more in this relationship that is supposed to be forever.
Thankfully the therapist is one that specializes in second marriages.
This is after 7 months of conversation after conversation of me verbalizing what I need from this relationship and him not trying to improve the state of things. I don't think he realized it was a big problem until now.
I am hopeful for the future and although approaching him was one of the hardest things, I think it will be one of the best things.
