Our marriage counselor has tentatively diagnosed my husband with schizoid personality disorder and has described it to me as a flaw in a diamond, in that he will never be able to "get better" even if he wanted to, just like it is impossible to remove the flaw from the diamond.

He asked me if i had ever seen a monkey drive a car, i said no, i haven't. "Well, that is what we could do, teach a monkey to drive, teach your husband to respond properly". Sooo...according to him my best case scenario is a monkey who can drive a car. I'm not happy in this relationship and I know in my gut the end is near but do i owe it to myself and my kids and to him to get a second opinion as far as his diagnosis?
