Help, my marriage makes me miserable

by Jules

Hi there,

I've run out of ideas when it comes to making our marriage work. We don't go out, as a couple, I've tried suggesting this but other half makes excuses, we hardly spend much quality time together. Feel like my opinion on most things, don't seem to matter but his does. There no affection or love or attention. Everyone else comes first, it feels, I'm last on list of priorities. At the stage where I can only think that me moving out is the only way forward, I feel as miserable as I have ever been.
Any ideas would be gratefully received.

"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."
