Brother, been there / am there. Why don't you try something different? Why not try opening your heart to her, and say what's hurting you so bad. Maybe it's the same thing that's hurting her. You've got to communicate through all that loneliness and pain, and it really isn't easy. Just talking from personal expreience here, and I ain't there yet. It isn't just sex. It's so much more, and she ain't listening ... not at the moment. Remind her who you are.

A bit over a year ago, you penned a story "Close To Breaking" in which you wondered how much longer you could tolerate your shithole marriage.

Clearly the answer to that was "at least another 12 months".

Don't forget next years anniversary, or the one after that.

Tread your own path.

this isn't working anymore.....
those moments are quite

It's done, stick a fork in it.

Yup, remembering anniversaries is just asking for heartache IMHO.
