I am a 23 year old woman who is having a hard time in my marriage lately. I have been with my husband for five years (one year and three months of marriage). No children between us and we both have decent paying jobs, and little debt.
Recently my husband has been distant, and when I asked if he would talk to me he came clean that although he loves me, and cares about me, he does not know if he is still "in love" with me. I asked him if he knew why (another woman, sexual attraction, had I changed, had he changed etc) and he could not tell me why. He confessed that he thinks of me as his best friend, not his wife.

They wouldn't be able to see each other when they exchanged their son, making him walk to the corner by himself to meet the other parent. His dad took care of him pretty much all his life and eventually his mom met another man and moved 6 hours away without telling my husband she was leaving. At 18 my husband felt he needed to know his mom, moved to where we live now and then when we got married, he picked his dad over his mom and his mom being his mom decided to stop speaking to him altogether. He doesn't have any other family here where we live, and his dad's family never comes to visit anymore and rarely call. He feels all alone.
Basically, I am a little confused as to how to help my husband. I want us to stay together but I think the issues with his family have caused him to
