Divorce? Counseling?

by anonymous
(Odessa,TX )

I love my wife very much so. But, I find myself very unhappy with her lately. She is a feminist, brought up a Mormon by a man hating mean old woman. Although I talk to her and try to explore sex with her she is uncomfortable with the subject because of how she was brought up. We have a very vanilla sex sex life and I need more.

She constantly tries to wear the pants In our relationship and wants to be the Boss. Her view point is men are pigs and is taking on her mother's feminism. What should I do? I'm so unhappy but I love her so.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
