I want it back!

You know that feeling of knowing when you come home at night, you'll feel so welcomed in your own home?  I want that back.  I want to feel loved and appreciated so badly and it just doesn't seem like it's going to happen.  I've been married for a long time, and it's as if we're just room mates or something.  It's hard to deal with.  She is just seemingly existing instead of really living how it used to be.  I don't know what to do anymore to  revive us as a couple.  I guess I'm just feeling really lost as to ideas.

Oh wow man...I feel your pain.  I'm living with my husband/brother right now.....feeling really trapped.  Just about ready to just give it up and call it quits, ya know.  I don't know how to get it back...if you had it to begin with, you're lucky...then go for it.  I'm not sure we ever had it.

 Try reading Dr Laura''s Book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" & "The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage"  You can read it together and talk about the things you can do to appreciate each other or read it on your own to get a better understanding.

Before things get back the way they were your gonna haft to break this bad cycle your in. Ignoring the issues or signs of problems is your very first mistake. The second mistake is not a dressing these problems. People get stuck in a rut or bad cycle and it takes a pull to get you out. If time passes with no change on your end for the better, your partner will grow farther away until they either cross the unforbidden line, and/ or have the talk!!!!!! Dont let this happen. This is why god gave you free will to change the things you can.

Hi Ellis, I know it has been a long time since you have written and I am wondering how you are doing?  Some pretty good responses here. I hope they helped.  I also hope you were able to sit down together and talk about the relationship, your hopes and dreams.  Don''t be surpirsed if you both share some of this and yet somehow got derailed.  Stuart
