She will not eat with me ,sleep with me sit with me, but I have to do what she wants WHAT gives please tell me something I still love her

Hi Steve~

It sounds like she's given up on the marriage.  She's doing her own thing when you're gone and when you're home too.  She pretty much doesn't acknowledge you at all, and that's just sad.  You can't make her feel something she doesn't feel for you.  And I know that's not what you want to hear right now, as you're still holding on to hope that you can work things out.  But it just might be time for you to move on with your life w/o her in it.  Sure she'll most likely protest a divorce b/c she has a lot to lose if you divorce her.  You won't be there to give her money (if she's using any of your income for things), to help pay bills, etc.  

The next time you come home try to sit down with her and have a serious heart to heart talk with her.  She needs to know how this is affecting you.  And what you're willing and unwilling to put up with in this marriage.  If she's still unwilling or unable to give you what you need, want, desire, deserve and expect in this marriage.  Then you need to be willing and able to move on with your life w/o her in it.  Yes, it will be tough but you can and will get through it.  As it is now this isn't a marriage, it's more of a roommate type relationship.  And that's not fair to you nor your wife.  

You have some tough decisions to make in the near future.  Sit down and weigh out your options and then figure out what's best for you.  Sometimes the hardest thing to do is taking the first step and then going through with it.  I hope this helps you some.

I can answer most any questions regarding a husband/wife relationship. Whatever the question may be. I would like to help you find an answer to it. If you want an honest and unbiased opinion on things then ask away. I am a divorced mother of 4 children, I have been a single mother, and I'm currently remarried and have a 4th daughter with my husband. I know what it is like to have a spouse cheat on you, to be taken advantage of, to feel like everything is hopeless (being depressed), emotions (the up`s and down`s). I will try to answer anything you have on your mind about husband-wife relationships, divorce, adultery, etc. Please don`t hesitate to ask.
