  • I think if you learn to trust then you can. Maybe counseling?

  • I go to counseling myself. My therapist suggested marriage counseling to help get over out issues ,but my husband will NOT go talk to anyone. I want to trust him again. I want things to work out. With me not being able to trust him has put a HUGE strain on our marriage. Trust me I have EVERY reason not to trust him ( I prefer not to go into details )

  • Trust can be rebuilt as long as the other person is willing to give you reasons to try to trust them again.

  • Yes, it can, but it would be more like a strained friendship. Good luck. Maybe you can rebuild it.

  • If he wont talk to anyone maybe that means he does not want to make the marriage last. If you dont trust him now how will you ever?

  • He says that he wants this marriage to work. I've tried so hard to rebuild trust ,but I honestly don't think I ever will. I'm just at a loss on what to do.

    I feel like my marriage is falling to pieces. The thing is I feel more at fault because I don't trust him.

  • If he wants it to work than he would go. Dont let him string you along. If you don't think you ever will. You might as well leave now.
