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.

Hi! fellow Coloradoan here!

I'm soooo happy you got him to go. This will really help your marriage!

Marriage counseling turned my marriage around. You will be so glad you went.

Thank you! This gives me even more hope for the future. And I love your signature, FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BECOME STEP-PARENTS.

Fellow Coloradoan here as well Smile I'm originally from Detroit though, so yeah, don't hold that against me! LMAO

I don't have any advice, just a hope that things work out for you! If you approach the counseling with an open mind and an eagerness to resolve conflict, it'll go that much smoother.

Good luck!
