Title: Should We Go to Counseling?
I don't really know what I expect you to say, but I'm at the point of ending
my marriage of almost 3 years because of my husband's inability to express any
signs of the "love" he has for me. I don't understand how we got to this
point and I don't know what avenue to take as far as counseling or simply
I can't even talk to him and when I try I can't get through to him and then I
want to kill him, figuratively speaking.
I don't know whether counseling will help but I am willing to try it.
We have a 2 year old daughter and I do want her to grow up in a stable home
I guess I'm asking whether, at this point, it's too late for talk when my
spouse and I aren't on the same page. Frankly, I'm tired of talking or trying
to squeeze a conversation out of him. I do so for my daughter's sake though
and I want to work things out also.
Enough babbling, thank you for your time and attention.

to try. If you go to counseling you won't have to have the guilt of "I
wonder if it would have worked later on in your life".
Men, in general, are not great conversationalists. But because of your
little one and for your own piece of mind, I suggest that you try
