  • try explaining it to him. I know I can feel pretty lonely at times, you just have to express yourself to him.

  • I would start a play group and I would find a hobby that makes me happy because I have been there before also sit down and find things for you to do with hubby talk to him and express where you see yourself in five years with him and as person. GL Momma

  • I guess it depends on your relationship goals. Is he working to provide a future for you? Is he gone in the military? Is he a truck driver? He probably thinks you have a perfect marriage and he's showing you his love by providing and being home when he's not working. Just talk with him. Many women get lonely when dh is gone. Some long haul drivers or off shore drilling guys or military are gone for very long stretches. They get lonely too and just want to go home. Home is where his heart is and now you are saying you want to rip that from him? Please talk to the man and tell him what you need.

  • First I would try talking to him. See where he stands with your relationship and if he wants to change things. If he does, then work on it and go from there. If he doesn't then maybe it is time for you two to move on.

  • it doesn't sound like much of a marriage... when hubby and i were having trouble a couple years ago she made her point by askiing me what my idea of a good marriage is, or marriage period. when i told her she pointed out that what was going on was not at all in line with that and therefore we weren't in a marriage. you need to tell him how you feel. it would be good if he could try and explain what his deal is - why he's not choosing to be with his family more or interact with you. it's hard to make decisions when you only know one side of the story. good luck.
