hi. me and my partener of five years have a three year old together. how can i get him to understand that he is important in the family? as in apart from looking after our son some of the days i work (he doesnt work), he doesnt realy pull his weight. sometimes i feel like im his mom too. he spends at least two nights a week out with his friends but will never take me out as he cant afford it apparently. he never buys me flowers, not even once. he barely even talks to me unless its to answer a question ive asked, then i have to shut up because i feel like im giving him a questionaire simply in hope of conversation. he never sits next to me or holds my hand or puts his arm around me. the bed is cold because there is so much space between us. we rarely have sex anymore and if we do its only when he is drunk. i want to know if theres a way to make this better and yes i have tried talking to him about it. he says thats just how he is. help!! id rather this could be fixedthan our child grow up in a broken home but i am craving physical affection so much and i dont believe anyone should be thrown aside like this.
