My husband and I have always had a "rocky" relationship. I like to think that it's 85/15. 85% of the time it's great but 15% of the time it sucks. We fight but then the next morning it always seems like the fight never happened, things are back to normal.
Monday we got in a fight and the next day I noticed dh wasn't wearing his wedding ring. When I would tell him I love him he wouldn't respond. I just thought that maybe he needed more time to get over the fight we had so I didn't say anything.
So after 2 days of it I finally asked him what was going on and he told me that he felt like he is on a hamster wheel, that he is giving everything and getting nothing and that his is such too tired to deal with anything anymore, that his life was just way too much work...and he wasn't just talking about me, he was talking about our 4 year old son too.
I was totally dumbfounded...where the hell was this coming from? I always thought he was happy. I stay home with our son...clean the house, get him a beer when he gets home from work, do whatever he wants in the bedroom, usually agree with him (so we don't argue), if he asks for it he gets it. I feel like I bend over backwards to try and make him happy. So why it is so much "work" for him? I asked him if he loved me and he was silent...no answer! I couldn't believe it. He asked me if I had every questioned our marriage and honestly...no. We fight but I have never questioned his love for me until last night. It's like he emptied a ton of bricks on me.
What do I do?
