Is your husband emotionally supportive & understanding of you??
I have been struggling with this for awhile........feeling very emotionally unsupported, detached, and understood by my hubby!! :( Thank god I have my cafemom friends, and a few other close friends/confidants that I speak to regularly about my concerns regarding health or other life matters! Things have gotten pretty bad between my husband and I over recent years............resentments on both ends over various issues, not being on the same page with each other, my trying/making efforts, and his lack of trying, understanding, & caring!! It honestly sucks that I get so little support from him (other than financial) and that most of my emotional support comes from others. It has gotten so bad that we hardly ever have any meaningful conversations, other than talking about the weather, the Phillies, the kids, what's for dinner, or a tv program.
Just curious how your husbands fare in that area?? How important is it to you that you are emotionally close with your spouses? I am seriously considering where this relationship is headed for the future since my kids are grown! But first things first, I have to get my own self in a position (career wise) where I can move forward if I decide to do that someday.
*and the hubby won't consider counselling for our issues either, in case someone was going to recommend that! He is far too private to discuss our issues with a therapist.
