Nothing in common
GARDENING GIRL - Aug 11 2019 at 14:26
We have been married 25 years. Over past few years as our children have got more independent we spent very little time doing anything together. He likes sitting reading paper & watching tv, I am more social & like being active.
He is retired & I still work. On my days off I suggest a walk or go something together, which is always refused. We both have elderly parents who would like to see more of their grandchildren but he refuses to visit them, maybe a few times a year and it’s done under duress.
His inactivity I can cope with but not doing things together means I miss that sense of closeness & get our sex life is poor. I also have growing resentment that he won’t visit parents with me. He doesn’t stop me from going on my own but I find I have to make excuses as to why he is not able to come.
I’d appreciate some advise
I am in the opposite end of this. I work full time outside. I only get a few days off and like to rest however I like to go out though. My wife likes to go out on my days off.
I find it can be a drain as we all need some alone time or off time. Maybe both of you need a change. Get away for a romantic weekend.
