He is not your wife and I am not you and our relationship is not like the one you and your ex had. I am working on my demons; you are blinded by yours.
My suggestion AFEH. Your ex did not leave because there was anything wrong with you. She turned against you and attempted to alienate your children. That is a reflection on her not you.
But she triumphs over you daily because you retain bitterness and you are living in a very dark place. Why? She is winning round after round and you sit like a beaten man. It is not too late for you to get your azz together and come out fighting .... for yourself.
I am convinced that you can do it. You have been in this pity party long enough. Take your sense of justice, morality and fine powers of perception and turn them to your good now.
I am certain you are capable of coming out of this, judging from the glimpses of the real you that peeks out occasionally.
if you regained your sense of hope for the future, you set an example to your sons about what it is to be a man. The command of himself and his environment are the hallmarks of being male, are they not?
Then why do you show your sons otherwise? They see a man who has allowed himself to be bested by a woman who set out to wound him. Why don't you show them what men are really made of.
I did not anywhere say your husband has dying feelings for you. Again you use strawman arguments and yet again you are deluded.
And just why are you here if you have no serious problems in your marriage? Are you here just to shoot the breeze or maybe you are here just to wind men up. A bit like a troll maybe?
You keep refering to man as some kind of evil. Are you really that blind, that unaware and sleep walking to think that that does not reflect in your marriage?
Don't you as you inferred withhold sex from your husband? If so you are one of the withholders, punishing your husband by withholding sex!
