  • Have you tried just telling him that you realize how wrong you have been to continually have rejected him, that you are sorry, and that you humbly as his forgiveness and that you promise to work really hard to keep it from ever happening again. I think he must be a very decent man to still be living with you. I know plenty of men who would have just left, so you could also add that you appreciate the fact that he is still with you in the light of how you have mistreated him. He has been wounded so many times that he doesn't want to risk it any more, and that's a very difficult place for anyone to be, man or woman. I think you may need to tell him every day for quite a while that you have messed up and that you are sorry and that you want to change. You might even be so brave as to ask him what it would take for him to be able to change his mind. But don't ask, if you aren't willing to do whatever it is he asks.

  • thats marriage counseling territory right there. I'd get there quick. His reaction is totally normal btw

  • Basically, you trained his response ... like you said, you rejected him so often that he's now come to expect it ... and he doesn't want to feel that again.
    It will take a lot of work to "re-train" ... a lot of reassurance and a lot of time. You'll probably be rejected a lot along the way.

  • Whether you were stupid and not thinking, or not ... you did train that response. He was taught that if he asked, he'd be rejected. I agree, it will take some work to teach something different.

  • I can't say that I blame him. I think that's a normal reaction. I agree with Zoeyis; I think you need marriage counseling.

  • is there a reason you rejected him for the last 2 years? Did he cheat or something?
