I also tried to communicate with my husband. out marriage was a train wreck and we never talked. We were roommates at best.

After seeing a counselor for 3 sessions he told me it was all bullshit and that he was too old to care about changing. He said he was happy with himself and his life and if I wanted him to be happy I should accept this fact. He stopped talking to me at all after this point.

From the post that you wrote in 2009, that "working hard to change every aspect of your life" possibly included changing aspects of your husband; unless the two people are unrelated. You mention that he had gone to the gym with you for 10 years, so I don't really see how he suddenly became "too old to care about changing".

There is a good deal more going on than people have been led to believe and a lot of years that you've spent training together as a couple even though the marriage, from what you sugesst, was less than great.

How true. We should retitle the thread "Men Suck," "Why Do Marriages Fail?". Seriously though, I'd love to see the Google numbers to this forum since that thread went up. Nice job, Livingitup48. BTB owes you big time.
