we are trying to work on it.. he says little stuff built up, but he never really talks about how he felt or what all the things were,, and if they even matter now.. how do i get him to expand with out him being defensive...
this is a rephrase of the men and feelings question...

The way I see it, you have two choices. You can either leave him and move on and learn from this experience or you can just accept that we have no guarantee of truth. He may say little things, but honestly, they may not be the truth and they may not be the whole truth. He probably doesn't want to hurt you with details. As women, we like to know what we are dealing with so information is very important. If he says he wasn't happy, then you need to know WHY he wasn't happy. What was he missing from your relationship that he was getting from someone else? Was it sex? Was it an emotional bond? Is it really over? Does he need to hear how much you appreciate him? I would recommend reading the Five Love Languages, that might help. But if you are expecting a bunch of strangers online to diagnose and figure out how to get your SO to talk, you are barking up the wrong tree. There is no way we can do that.
