DH and I have been together for almost 9 yrs now. We are exact opposited and sometimes its great, sometimes it makes things more difficult. I realize that I need more out of our relationship and I am afraid he cant do it. We come from completely seperate backgrounds and have totally different wants and desires. But we usually get along great and have a deep love--I truly believe he is my soulmate. But how can two people in love not be happy?
We realize what our problem is-our differences-and are trying to find a counselor to help us sort things out. We are torn between trying to make it work and letting it go. We have tried different things over the years but one of us is always unhappy. I dont mean like depression unhappy, but lacking in some serious need like friends or free time or something.
So the question is, is there anything that you ladies have experienced that may help? We both want to work on it but we know we have to be able to clearly let it go if we cant figure something out as we are always 'trying to work on it.' We know we cant try forever but we arent ready to give up either. Thats a good sign, right?
