Married Without Intimacy Is Worse Than Being SingleI'll say it right up front. I'm codependent. I'm a romantic. I feel the best way to enjoy something is to share it with someone else. Emotional intimacy is like oxygen for me. Some people might see this as a personality flaw or weakness. (especially in a guy) I don't. I know it makes me susceptible emotionally but I don't care. I feel best when I'm with someone else and I've always been this way. That said....
My wife has been cold to me for 2 years and we've lost all intimacy. She won't even hold hands anymore. We've been married for 9 years. I've written about the situation on other posts. My point here is that the comfort of intimacy and that emotional anchor of marriage are why I got married in the first place. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with my wife but I don't think she does anymore. I'm in a limbo. I lover her so much I feel like throwing up just thinking about us getting a divorce but this lack of intimacy is severely depressing me.
To say "I need Emotional Intimacy" is an understatement in my situation.
