after 5 years of marriage and 6 years together i think my husband is ready to call it quits and i don't know what to do. i love him and want to stay with him but he does have a valid point. he says we have nothing in common anymore. how can i get him to see that we do have things in common (other than sex and our love for tha kids)?? anyone have any good ideas?

Find something new to do together. or find out what things you had in common the first time. Those are the easiest things to do. Most of the time men are talking about interests. In the beginning of a relationship a lot of women, especially if you were younger when you got together, interest ourselves in their activities because its them, not because we actually like the activity. For example, my DH loves to play guitar. I don't care for the guitar, but I still paste a grin on my face (like when we were dating), and listen. When he asks did you like this or that better, even though they more than likely sound the same to me, I pick one and come up with a reason for my pick. He feels that I am interested in what he does and I am because I am engaged in the activity with him. Remember the interest is him, not the actual activity.
