Lonely Marriage Sinking Like The Titanic

I have been with my husband for 8 years. Married for 3 have 2 children. I feel soooo lonely. I keep trying to talk to him but there is always something more important than me computer, work, talking on the phone, going out with friends. I don't know if I can take it. it's not that I believe someone else can do everything that I need. But, i think I am to the point where I would almost rather live alone and not feel like I live with a roommate I am required to give sex to. My husband always tells me there is nothing wrong and i should be grateful because I have a great life. He just doesn't get it and I am beginning to think he never will.

I am all about books. I will read that one. Thanks, I have suggested counseling he said he would rather let the marriage end in doom than go to counseling.

Ever read the Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman? I'm not saying answers are in books, but sometimes they shed light. Sounds to me like you guys aren't speaking the same language. If you can work on that early you may be able to salvage your marriage. Any hope for counseling?<br />

Just some thoughts.
