  • You don't you separateand divorce. If you both are not willing to work on the marriage it won't work.

  • Normally I would say that one person working won't help...and then I saw the movie "FIreproof". It makes you realize that you can't change anyone else's behaviour but if you change your own behaviour, it will change the way they act to you. The movie has a strong Christian base to it.

  • If they respect you and your feelings,I believe it can work. But you can't make someone try and care...or even love or like you. Possibly try church or counseling. If he still doesn't seem to care, move on to someone who wants what you want.
