I am married to a wonderful father of my 6 children. The problem is that he chooses to be a father rather than a husband. We have been to conferences, watched marriage videos (17), etc. He knows all the "tools," but does not utilize them. It's as if he hides in the role of a father. I honestly think a lot has to do with the fact he use to be involved in porn addiction. He's not anymore, but that is one sure way to insure a man's inability to be intimate emotionally with a woman. He's also in recovery from drug & alcohol addiction. He's on year 6 and working his program. I just can not figure out what gives in the husband department. I've told him I really can not take the pain of being ignored anymore. My children are clearly raised up above their own mother. It is sooo dishonoring to me. this past spring ignored me for 5 straight months with the exception of, "Have a nice day, Honey." I've told him I want to leave him and he said no to a separation. What gives? Why would a guy act like this? I could really use some insight.
