My wife has been a cold, unaffectionate woman and a great mother. For 21 years, I have endured this relationship, and now our college-age daughter, who sleeps until 12 every day, hedges on getting a job.
We've tried counseling and my wife always turns it to, "You have to make me want to have sex with you," even though she has never initiated it and rarely touches me. Yet she'll pick up one of our cats and nuzzle it, etc. She thinks I am being ridiculous when I bring this fact up. I am a professional and don't know where else to turn. Do I stay? Is there a book to read?
