    I am married but it feels like a roommate. We don't even sleep in the same room. No sex for 17 years!! I am at a loss. She is a MD AND I am disabled and dependent on her. Should I expect anything? Where would I go, how would I live, do I even know how to romance someone?
    rohvannyn responded:
    Ask her if she still loves you. If she does, let her know how her behavior is affecting you. You should at least expect kind treatment if you are married to a person.

    Thank you so much for your reply. There has been many times that I could have had an affair but walked away and it was hard to. The other person gave me more attention/flirting.I am going crazy. The idea of a call girl came up briefly, but was dismissed.Alas, I am a fateful wonderer.
    rohvannyn replied to jaws82's response:
    If you doubt your ability to talk to your wife about this, ask yourself this question: "what is worth more to me, peace and happiness or avoiding this potential conflict?" I can completely understand being afraid of losing everything. But I don't think this life you are leading is sustainable either. Besides, surely you two married for a reason, and she might like more affection in her life as well. I don't know much about your situation but I really hope things get better for you.
