    I Want Out, He Wants Me To Stay

    I really think it is a case of a fragile tropical plant that has not been watered in way too long.  My love for him has died and I can't get it back.  He admits to "checking out" of the marriage previously.  Of course this was at a time when I really needed him...

    I Don't Want To Be Unfair To Him

    My husband is a great guy who treats me so well - he is kind, supportive and caring. The problem is, I just don't know if I'm in love with him anymore. I have felt this way for years now - in fact I was a little unsure even before we got married - but I have been trying to ignore...
