I don't tell my husband I love him

We had an arranged marriage. He tells me he loves me and I don't say anything.  Sometimes I hug him or kiss him.  Other times I am not close enough to do so.  He got upset last time. I don't love him.  I am very fond of him and care for him.  I don't want to hurt him but I don't want to lie to him either.

I am in an arranged marriage I learned and grew to love my husband. It takes time and dedication. Start by wooing each other building the love. Kindle the passion.

If divorce isn't ever an option for you, I think it is a harmless lie. Why make him sad over refusing to say it?

Should I lie to him?

I show him how I care by being a good wife and he is everything someone could want in a husband.  We are both successful professionals and we both take time to do something special for each other.  I feel like I am married to a good friend and not the love of my life. 

I had a relationship with another man before I got married when I was in school.  I thought he was my soulmate.  It's been 6 years and I still think of him. Am I wanting what I can't have?

How can I give him the kind of love he wants?

Wow I couldn't imagine having to be forced into a marriage where I didn't love my husband. My husband is my best friend and my world and I couldn't imagine not telling him I love you multiple times a day! Hugs to you and I hope either you learn to love him or maybe divorce him if that's an option for you.
