I understand how you feel. Don't do anything that you might reget later, like leaving. You should sit down with your husband and have a good old fashion talk. Ask him how he feels about you. You obviously married because you were atrracted to each other and loved one another. Having children does change things in marriages, and after 18 years, a realationship changes.
I was married 18 years and together 21. My husband recently passed away. As we all know, relationships go through changes. When we first meet, we spend a lot of time in the bedroom. Later we spend a lot of time in the kitchen and gain weight. We tend to take each other for granted, and stress on the job sometimes makes a man not interested in sex. Being with the same partner for many years, the sex gets boring and we fanaticize about others, I have myself, mostly with very good looking celebrities, as I'm sure he did also.
Although I never acted out and cheated, we do think about it, it's normal. Do not beat yourself up. You are lacking affection from your husband, and your love tank needs to be filled up. When a man or a woman give affection to the other, it's gives them self-confidence, which we lack when our significant other doesn't pay attention to us.
I have gone through this myself, it happens in every relationship. Sometimes we have to spice things up. During the week is a stressful time to have sex. Weekends are better. Try to get the kids out of the house or to a sitter. Go out to dinner with your husband, wear a sexy dress, put some makeup on. Buy some nice perfume. I like Dune by Christian Dior, and so do men I meet.
What happens is the passion leaves the relationship. I always remember the first time, that was the most exciting time, but we cannot have that first time back, but we can change the future.
I had gained a lot of weight and couldn't even look at myself in the mirror. After I lost my husband, I lost 30 lbs, and I got my confidence back.
Marriage is job and we have to make it work, it doesn't happen on it's own.
Hope you day is better today.
thank you so much this has helped me aot and i am sorry about your husband..we have talked until i am blue in the face.. i am giving him 1 more year and then we will see this is when my oldest turns 18.. i will give it my all in this year and if nothing i have to move on.. best wishes and thanks again..
