    Marriage can be wonderful,

    exciting, and a lot of work. When one party refuses to participate in the maintenance of the union, it becomes just a piece of paper.

    Not what it used to be.

    Feeling lonely from lack of affection; lack of intimacy....... husband doesn't seem very motivated in me or his future to better himself. Don't say he may be depressed. He dismisses any sadness I have. He would be more sympathetic
