I want so much in life, to travel to get a career going I feel so motivated and ready to see the world and he is just very comfortable sitting on the couch every night. Its really depressing and I'm at my wits end. He has no motivation and I feel like he's dimming my spirit.Answer Question

I think I would talk to him and let him know how you are feeling. Sometimes when we start learning new things we see the world differently, I think the key is to learn these new things while maintaining our lives. I would let him know about your dreams and see if he has any of his own. Maybe he feels the same as you and just doesn't know how to start the conversation.

If he is not depressed and is just happy with the status quot, many ppl are like that, then you both have to learn to meet in the middle. You need to except his need for simplicity and he has to except your need to grow and experience new. Like stay in one night, go out to try something new another like going to a poem reading etc. It's a good idea to look at the whole picture, the whole families needs and go from there. As always communication is key.
