So here is the situation.
Married 10 years, together 12, I'm 35, she's 37. 1 son, 2 1/2 years old.
We've probably been intimate about 4 times in the past 12 months.
Wife is locked in the minutia of everyday life, e.g. "Tidying, housework", finds numerous reasons not to be intimate ("too late, too early, too tired, wrong time of month"). She hasn't initiated intimacy in the 12 years I've known her.
I feel she 'nags', I don't do enough, I often feels like she treats me like a child, "have you done X, where are the Y's - show me".
I've also always earned much more than she has but am constantly under pressure to earn more because she want's her 'dream house', or 'that car', but in the same bounds, she's intolerant of any particular demands my work or profession may have on my time. I commute over 4 hours a day to my job and have done so for 8 of the past 10 years.
No expected infidelity on either side, no other particular issues. I'm just basically fed up with nagging, harassment, pressure and lack of intimacy.
Personally, I can't take another 40 years of this. There has to be something more to life right? Or do I just take up golf and do my own thing?
Looking back over this, it seems like whining, but if life isn't about how you feel or perceive it to be, what is it about?
