My husband doesn't have any answers. He told me over a month ago that he hasn't been in love with me for quite some time, but he doesn't want to leave me, either. He's agreed to go to counseling, but he finds it difficult to participate in the assignments the therapist gives us. He says he just doesn't feel anything for me, and doesn't know if he ever will again. Meanwhile, he still likes to cuddle (or spoon), and we are still intimate. We have two kids, and he says they are the reason why he's staying. While I've told him that I want him to stay, I also understand that I can't keep him if he doesn't want to be here. He says he wants to keep trying. He says he still cares for me a lot. He tells me I'm attractive, sweet, attentive and a great mom. He cries when he says I'll be better off with someone else. Why doesn't he want me? (I should point out that my personal hell started when we financially spun out of control...) We've since gained some support (I have a new job) and we're downsizing to save some money. We're planning for a future together. And then he'll throw in something about separating, or divorcing.. and I get that lump in my stomach all over again. What is he really trying to tell me? Please, any men out there, try to explain this to me! It hurts so much!!

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
