Ok Girls, need some honest opinions;
My husband and I have been married for 4 years and have two beautiful children together. Our relationship has been rocky from the start. We got married after only knowing each other for 6 months and got pregnant with our first right after that. We have had our fair share of arguments, as I imagine most couples do and I have contemplated leaving him before. Now that we have two children, we for sure work hard to make things work and I have seen a big change in him since I started back at work 2 months ago after my maternity leave ended. He is finally starting to pull his weight around the house by looking after the kids while I'm at work and doing their baths and putting them to bed (I work nights).
The problem is is that I just don't feel like I love him anymore. Not to get too personel, but we havn't been intimate in months because I literally shudder when he touches me in an intimate way, almost like its my brother doing it. How we concieved two kids is beyond me. He complains all the time about it but I don't know what to do. If it makes me feel that uncomfortable, it makes me wonder. He is for sure my BEST friend, I tell him everything and other than the physical side of our relationship, we get along just great. There isn't anyone else in my life, I have never cheated or even thought of cheating on him. I don't want to stay married just because, but I also don't want to loss him as a friend and partner. Is this a good enough reason to suggest seperating?
