For awhile I have felt like my husband is more of a roommate than a spouse. I haven't had 'those' feelings for quite some time and not sure how to get it back. It's the same thing everyday, and more so since I now stay home w/ our kids. When he gets home from work, we have dinner then he'll disappear to the basement to work on finances or other items. Sometimes he will help w/ cleaning the kitchen or other areas - after I've mentioned it a few times. He has a rotating day off during the week and every Sunday (he is a letter carrier for USPS), but even on his day off yesterday he was gone most of the morning to get some work on his car and then he took a nap in the afternoon (lucky). And at night sometimes he'll come back to bed after I've gone to bed, but most nights he's fallen asleep on the couch while trying to watch one of his shows. He says he's not tired when I go to bed, but I hear him snoring in the living room before I've fallen asleep. We have addressed these items before, and it'll change for a while and then we're right back to where we started. I don't see myself not being with him, although that thought has crossed my mind. Anyone else feel like this and how to get past this bump in your marriage?
