Hi. I am 28 years old and feel like I am facing one of the most difficult times in my life right now. I have been married for three years and together for a total of five. The problem is I don't think I am in love with my husband anymore. I don't feel affection for him. I just look at him as a friend. It's awful but I have been feeing this way for a time now. I come from a family where my parents have been married for over 30 years and I have two older brothers who are both married over 10 years. I feel like the black sheep and wonder why I can't have that. I don't want to hurt him but living like this is killing me. I am terrifed of divorce, being alone, surviving on my own since I never had to. I got married when I was still living at home with my parents. I want to have a family but with the right person. I am very confused and lost. I think it would be better for him too. We are not happy but I think he stays with me out of obligation or duty although he is still in love with me and attracted to me. I can't touch him. I just feel like the most awful cruel person in the world. And I can't bear to tell him that. Any advice or help is welcome. I could really use it. Thanks.
