Re: I married the wrong man and I'm lost
I totally get where you're coming from.. my situation is similar in some aspects, although my wife is now making a conscious effort to change. We really still don't know whether our marriage will survive or not, but we're trying.
My gut feeling about what's going on in your life? If two people are NOT on the same page regarding mutual affection and being appropriately sensitive to each other's feelings, it's going to be a real struggle. The relationship might not be worth it in the long run.
Would you like to grow old, constantly thinking that you're missing out on true love? That is something you need to think about.
Cheating is NOT going to help. If you're that starved for affection, you better stand up for it - otherwise you're just compromising with your self-respect without really changing your circumstances.
Sorry if that came across as harsh, btw.
