| | I feel like we are roommates
My man and I have been together going on 6 years. I have 2 daughters, he has no children. We've shared our ups and downs but I have always thought we've come out ahead. We rarely fight. Actually, our relationship often feels like we are roommates. We do a lot of things apart. And don't get me wrong, time apart is well appreciated in this household. But there is a lack of intimacy, lack of interest in the kids affairs. We don't hang out and watch TV together. Although we do go to our property together which we really enjoy. We eat sit down for meals together. He makes a great step dad if it involves something he enjoys or has to do with their academics. The kids are tolerant (I am an awesome mom!) but it's starting to wear on my nerves. Communication is a one way street too. I do all the talking and he just looks at me and seems indifferent. I don't nag either. He is often crabby after work and I feel like I am walking on eggshells so I avoid him.
The kind of advice I am looking for is from someone, male or female, who have gone through something like this. What worked for you, what didn't.
