My husband and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary last night. We've been having trouble in our marriage basically the whole 2 years. I sadly think we may have gotten married too young. We were only 22. I want to feel noticed by him. My husband rarely touches me, doesn't really give me hugs/kisses,etc. We rarely have sex. He really doesn't like to talk about feelings. And I'm just feeling invisible and really sad. I've brought up these issues many times and he says he really wants to work on them, but after a day or so, everything is back to normal. I thought of an idea that might help him remember to touch me. Pick something (my nose, my knee, anything) and whenever you see it, you can remember to touch me. Needless to say, it hasn't really been helping. It was a weird idea anyway. So last night was our anniversary. I put together 20 mini date nights for us to do in the future. Wine tasting, bubble bath, build a blanket fort, game night, etc. I though it could help us connect more. I don't consider my love language to be "gifts," but my husband's gift for me really hurt me. He bought me some kitchen towels and socks. I think it hurt me so much because we've been talking so much lately about how I want to feel more connected to him and more noticed. I feel like we've struggled so much these 2 years. It's felt more sad and disappointing than happy. I love him so much, but also don't want to feel like this forever, you know? I feel invisible. Can anyone relate or give any advice? I've suggested couples counseling many times, but he says it's too expensive. What should I do?
