  • Would I leave over that? No. But I'd definitely keep working on it. If he won't go to couples counseling with you, go by yourself. That's what I would do.

  • Yes, I hate to say it but I would leave. There doesn't seem to be a future for you with him.

  • Leave. He doesn't give a rat's ass about you or your feelings. He is using you to jack off and whatever else you do for him. Sorry to be so blunt, but don't you think you deserve someone who cares about you as a person? I think you do and I don't even know you. Some a-hole who has been privileged to be in your presence and been given the gift of love without responding in kind is just someone who needs more time alone. I'd leave a bottle of lube with a ribbon and a note: "So you won't miss me."

  • I wouldn't leave, his needs are being met, but your's isn't. I think counseling would be wonderful for the both of you. He may be dealing with something himself that he can't get a handle on. Try to approach him differently and see how he responds. Do you love him? That may be the question he is asking himself...guys are funny, you never know what they are thinking unless you flat out ask.

  • Since he will not listen then yes I would probably leave. If you feel you have tried everything then do what you need to do to make a happy life for yourself. There is nothing worse in life then an unhappy mother with children. It is better to be all alone and happy then unhappy in a relationship. It will eat away at you if you stay and nothing ever changes. And you will resent him for it too.

  • Keep working on it! Marriage is for better or for worse. Go to your church or a counselor and get marriage help. I would think outside help would really open his eyes more. Also there is a wonderful book that you two should read for your marriage's sake called Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs by Emerson Eggerichs. GL to you two

  • Read the "Five love languages" book with him. Hubby and I are reading it. :) Don't leave be patient and appreciate the good things. :) Blessings

  • Then dont have sex with him...tell him you can have cheap meaningless sex with a stranger at a bar if that is what you wanted...who is he to negate your feelings and scratch his itch? I would nto leave right away but you bet your sweet ass I would get my point accross loud and clear.
