welcome to MS - I hope that you will find much help in understanding your husband here
I agree with Roger - and many books back it up - in that the minds of men and women indeed do work very diffrently - the mind of a man compartmentalizes everything - it's just the way mens minds work - and it seems that the abuse amplifies the level of compartmentalizing that we do
most important thing is to work on developing communication between the 2 of you - communication is the key to good relationships
my wife is a VERY emmotional person - I'm perfectly ok with that - I hope she knows that - I love her hugs and kisses
and... - it's also hard for me to initiate sex - though I do like to do it - it's one of those "issues" I'm still working on I guess...
I hope that your husband is actively working on his "issues"
again... Welcome to MS
