My wife definitely needs space in our relationship. In searching for help with this online, I found this webpage: http://powertochange.com/sex-love/space/. I see that my marriage is a type 1 according to this page. Now the question is can I accept this and change. I have been working on giving space a lot lately. We are almost down to the minimum we can be around each other now. I try not to pressure for time together but I miss having a companion. I have actually fantasized about putting an ad in Craig’s List for man/woman friendship in order to have someone to do things with. Oh well. How much time together should be expected with 3 school aged kids? We do watch TV together a couple of nights a week which my wife points to. I say it does not count as we are not even interacting at all. I am so tired of all this but I know leaving my wife and kids would be so awful for all of us. Anyone have any ideas?
