Lonely in my marriage


My husband is a very nice man, he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body, does lots of the housework, and can be funny which makes me laugh. Despite recognizing and appreciating all these good qualities, I feel lonely in the marriage, we spend a lot of time physically together but in our own worlds. He doesn’t like talking much which is how I feel close to people. He shuts conversations down, not to be mean but just because talking isn’t his thing. I have tried many different things over the years, and now I have just accepted this is how it is. But that makes me feel sad..and lonely. Also when we have sex, we are both in our own worlds too. I have this aching sadness that makes me cry silent tears and I am not sure what to do.
