Is it ok to text my husband about marital concerns?
My hubby and I haven't been spending much time together lately and I feel super lonely. We both work part-time, but we are usually home together in the evenings. When I ask him to watch a movie with me he never wants to, and even if he does he has his laptop or phone going the whole time. I tell him this bothers me, but he doesn't care. He isn't very romantic either... I do nice things for him all the time to express my love for him (gifts, cooking special meals and deserts, thoughtful texts, compliments) and get nothing in return... Even on holidays, I don't get gifts or anything. When I tell him that I need these things from him he tells me I'm the one with problems. The other day he said I was acting like a bitch because I texted him while he was a work about wanting to spend more time making each other happy and that we should work on having a better marriage... I hate when he calls me a bitch. I know I'm not perfect, but I at least try to change, to be a better wife. I don't think he even thinks at all about being a better husband. We're not talking to each other right now, because I'm still hurt about the bitch thing...childish, I know. I just want to spend more time together and I want him to show me more love and affection! Is that too much to ask of my husband!?!? How do I approach him about this topic for the millionth time? I'm so burntout... I have asked him to go to counseling, but he refuses. Is my marriage over? Gosh I hope not, for our son!!!
