Shortly after I married my husband, and the verbal, emotional abuse started, I could no longer be initmate with him. I didn't know if it was the lack of respect he was showing me, or just the simple humiliation I felt when he would yell, scream & belittled me. He told me I was the one with the problem, since I couldn't "forgive him", and I wasn't being a loving wife I promised in our vows. When I would explain how I needed to feel respected & appreciated in order to want to be intimate, he would always just shrug off any of my feelings, which just added to the cold emotional marriage. Of 9 years of marriage, were only intimate the first year. It wasn't as if I was withholding on purpose, I just had no desire to be intimate with someone who seemed to think so little of me & my feelings/emotions. Is something wrong with me??
