No more affection

by Maritza
(Pa)

Before I married my husband, he was always affectionate towards me. Kissed me out of nowhere or hugged me for no reason or say I love you out of the blue.


We got married 3 years ago and since that day, it all stopped. I've spent the last 2 years begging for attention or a hug or a kiss. He said he was going to change, but he hasn't. Now when we get into arguments, he says hurtful things to me like: no one will want me, or that I'm psycho, he tells me he's not in love with me.

But the newest thing he said was he cheated on me. Then 2 months later when we argued again, he said he might of gotten a girl pregnant. About 2 days went by and he said he lied n that he never cheated.

I can't take it anymore. He needs help!

"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."
