She Does Not Feel That I Like Her

I have been married for almost 25 years. My wife and I have had five children together. Our marriage is sexless as we have had sex four or five times over the past 10 years. Twelve years ago, I financially abused her, and she left me emotionally. Our children live at home and are 23, 21, 19, 17 and 9. Our home is not only always a mess, it is literally filthy. She ends up doing all of the dishes and the wash because she doesn't get anyone else to do it. We never have family dinner except for special occasions such as national holidays. We were expelled from our church about twenty years ago, and it has killed my wife. She is now about 100 pounds overweight. I am working two full time jobs, and she is and has been for the last 20 years a stay-at-home mom. There is no real affection now. We just live in the same home and try to serve our children as best we can. I am going to focus on fixing my financial situation. In the meantime, we just tolerate each other.
