Alright, so after hanging with some friends then doing hours of thinking by himself last night, my husband came home to talk. He apologized for "everything he has put me through". He said that he feels worthless due to being out of a job for so long and that he doesn't know how I put up with him. He says that none of the things he blamed me for initially are my fault and that he recognizes that I've been the only one trying lately; it made him realize that he didn't think he deserved me. He told me he didn't love me "that way anymore" because he could see it was hard for me and wanted to make it easier bc he thought if I didn't think he loved me, I would let him go easier. He realizes he needs to work on healthy ways of dealing with stress before it builds up to such a high stress level. I will continue to suggest counseling.
I want to thank you all for so much great advice and non-judgmental support. I am glad that he had time to think things through and realized some of these things. We both have things to work on in our marriage, but they are definitely not things that cannot be worked through. I am glad he decided this as well.
