    Why Is It So Hard For My Husband To Show Affection?

    He says he loves me, when I drag it out of him. He never compliments me, although I know I am deserving of compliments. He keeps everything inside and doesn't let anyone in. Every once in a while I would like a spontaneous I love you, or you are beautiful. I want him to adore me...
