Those are really nice links you have provided here. Counselling is increasing day by day in this busy schedule. I just liked the sentence "Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is love"

These are great resources. I tried the counseling hotline and they are v patience and professional. However decision still lies with oneself.

I'm not sure if I may use this thread to seek some opinions from married couples about the following situation:
I love my dh v much that I can't let go emotionally when I feel he somehow seem "detached":(
Some troubling behaviours:
- keeping hp by side most times and wouldn't allow access by wife
- staying awake till wee hours at night and waking up much earlier on weekends to stay away in bed
- busy with phone and when phone ring while dh in toilet, he will rushed out immediately
- get angry when initiate to communicate the differences
- frequent no returns at night
- unable to answer calls at night even while dh in overseas

Painful in heart but unable to talk as dh would say there's nothing.
Does anyone has similar experience to share how to improve situation?

Hi firelyserene

It just my opinons.
Pardon me for being straight foward. The chances are he is seeing someone else.

In the past, does he keeps his mobile by his side and does he allow you to access? Or is it just a recent change? If there are nothing secrective, i don't see why you are not allow to access.

Sometimes, guy might even set the girl contact name as another male name in his contact list.

Did you ask, reason of being staying late in wee hours or not return home at night? How can a married man not returning home at night??

Does he talk secerectly in the toilet for short conversation?

"get angry when initiate to communicate the differences"
I feel - trying to get deny and get away from all your questioning....

I am sorry to hear that fireflyserene. there are a lot of foolish man out there. Sometimes they don see that the one that really love them and would sacrifice for them is their wives who are waiting at home for them.
