  • You have to be honest with him. If you are unhappy, tell him, and tell him why. Don't attack him, but ask him to help you and work on some changes together. Maybe he is unhappy too and is too afraid to say anything. If you tell him you might be able to fix the problems or seek counseling....

  • Just tell him that you want more time with him, and you feel like you're drifting apart and you don't want that, ask him to please help you work on this

  • I think thats completely normal. I would tell him you are feeling very disconnected to him and maybe you both can come up with ideas on how to reconnect with eachother. Maybe make a commitment to have a date once a week (even if its a simple stay at home date). A friend of mine use to send the kids to the neighbors once a week and make dinner for her and her hubby and make it kind of silly, like wearing something silly... only an apron etc. Maybe even consider counseling if you feel you need it as well. But don't feel hopeless, marriage just takes work and sometimes we get caught up in the daily routine that we forget to nurture our relationships.

  • Try with all your might to give it one last "hooraw." You took vowes and that means trying through the hard stuff .if it means you won't be happy for the rest of your life than lesson learned and move on

  • My husband and I literally just went through this, we are taking a personal day this weekend and spending time together as his mom will watch the kids. We do not want to leave eachother because we truly love eachother, but we are unhappy. Come to find out it's due to stress of many different things going on in our lives, we sat down and talked about ways to come together and be closer, for instance simply sitting on the couch and cuddling after the kids go to bed and watch a movie, have sex more often, hold hands more, communicate EVERYTHING, This is truly working for us, I wish you the best of luck in getting things worked out or sorted out.
