@sara600 maybe do something together and open up to him in your most vulnerable state. Men sometimes are not good with emotions and they just don't get it. Remember that Emotional abuse is also a thing so if he is not fulfilling you emotionally then let him know and exhaust all options before you call it quits. Really sorry you feeling this way and you not yourself.

I'm sorry you're having such a difficult time with your husband. I'm glad you're getting individual counseling. I guess marital counseling would help too. I hope the following might be helpful too. It's using Nonviolent Communication to solve marital problems. The workshop leader took on the challenge of solving a married couple's 39 year fight in 20 minutes, and succeeded! This is a 7-minute and humorous youtube. He scrupulously uses NVC's version of "I observe, I feel, I need, I request".

@PostiveVibes We haven't done anything together as a married couple for a few years now..I find it difficult to understand why men have such problems with expressing their feelings especially with someone they have been living with for decades. I am curious do you have any advice you can give me, because when you mentioned exhaust all options before you call it quits..I can't think of any.
