I’ve been married nearly 6 years, we have a child together who is nearly 4 (and I have 2 other kids from a previous relationship), in the past 2 years I’ve gotten more and more irritated every time my husband speaks or does anything.
My doctor is treating me for severe depression but it seems that, as time goes on, the happiness and caring in our marriage gets less, no matter how the depression treatments go.
I do not feel attracted to him at all and sometimes I even feel repulsed by the thought of kissing him.
Sure I feel like I still love him, but it feels more and more like a platonic kind of thing than the relationship, in love, I’m so happy to be with you, kind of thing it was before.
We rarely fight anymore, not since he stopped drinking, since the last time he ended up being charged by police for assaulting me when he drank.
We barely talk anymore.
Sometimes I just wish he’d leave me so I could escape and not be responsible for it…
Is it just the depression or what should I do?
