Married Without Intimacy Is Worse Than Being SingleBeing married without emotional intimacy is worse than being single. I feel isolated and alone. I am an empath, and need that emotional connection and being deprived of it makes me feel so lifeless. I am a very giving loving person & feeling no emotion or love from the one I am married to makes me feel ill & very unhappy.
My right to search or be with someone who gives the kind of affection I need is taken away, and knowing it is out there leaves one yearning for something we cannot have.
