I have been separated for a little over 2yrs. from my husband. I was married for 24yrs. Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same type relationship I was in, and how they overcame it. I’m having a very difficult time with this, because not too many people have experienced the same degree of neglect that I have. This behavior was evident from the beginning of our relationship. It didn’t become like this over time. The only way I can explain what I’ve gone thru is to paste certain articles, that I’ve come across that explain what I’m talking about. Thanks

Examples of articles I’ve come across:

Each individual's ability to form and maintain relationships using this "emotional glue" is different. Some people seem "naturally" capable of loving. They form numerous intimate and caring relationships and, in doing so, get pleasure. Others are not so lucky. They feel no "pull" to form intimate relationships, find little pleasure in being with or close to others. They have few, if any, friends, and more distant, less emotional glue with family. In extreme cases an individual may have no intact emotional bond to any other person. They are self-absorbed, aloof, or may even present with classic neuropsychiatric signs of being schizoid or autistic

Consider the emotional response of the following individuals in love relationships:
Bernie is a kind, steady and dependable man whose emotional flatness inspired the nickname “Mr. Spock.” He can warm to his work, but not the love relationship with his wife. His mood remains at a plateau — nothing is too exciting, nothing is worth arguing about. When Bernie’s wife inevitably filed for divorce, it came as a surprise

Normally nonfacial expressions. Voice tone normally remains the same , can’t tell whether happy, or sad

Speaks very little if at all in social situations, is not aware how to reciprocate interest in person conversation

Loneliness – not feeling emotionally known, understood and valued by your partner

Inability to experience the joy of shared fun, joy and pleasure

Not feeling cared for in times of trouble – support and compassion are absent in times of need

I can relate to some extent, but not to the extent posted. The final outcome tho at the bottom, yes, I can relate.
