Been married for 5 years. Nothing turbulent, nothing exciting. One major issue I had right from the start is H being introvert. Over years, due to this nature, I have started feeling emotionally lonely in this marriage. We almost live like room mates. I make sure he has food ready and a decent home to come to. ( Of course, with the help of maid and cook) In turn, he takes me out when I ask him to. Period. It keeps dragging like this for few weeks, till I can't take it anymore and a fight ensues ( yes, I only start the fight ) At various points of married life I have tried compensating the emotional loneliness with external sources. My parents ( I am very much attached to them and they are a great emotional support ) my education and so on. But I realise all these are temporary. My husband feels I'm exaggerating the situation and try to pick up fights bcos I am bored. Currently I am not working and stay at home all day. My major interactions are with the cook and maid. I don't go out much esp since I'm pregnant, I have stopped using my 2 wheeler. I just know few ppl but none close enough to go and spend an evening with. On the other hand, husband works from 8 to 5 and sometimes has to be out at odd hours as per his job demands. He comes home and the next second switches on the Tv and gets glued to it till bed. I don't watch TV much and hence I'm no great company. If I initiate a conversation sitting next to him, he answers in mono syllables, which turns me off after some time and I just move away. He would have watched the same movie some hundred times, yet, doesn't answer something when spoken to, lest he miss the scene. Sometimes he just turns a deaf ear and it literally irritates me a lot. We have been on long car drives ( 6-8 hours) where we sit silently till the destination comes. He is the same with his parents and they are ok with it and in fact his mother gives some lame excuses to pacify me. I have spoken both gently and in heated arguments about how I feel about all this and I don't think he understands or doesn't care. I know some of you would suggest me to keep myself busy with something or the other and not be emotionally dependent on him. But that's easier said than done. Some quality time together, some emotional bonding is all I ask for. I am fed up living this room mate kind of life.
