I posted a while back (Love but not in love with my husband). I have since then spoken to someone at relate, stalked mn nonstop for parallel situations/advice, started reading Too good to leave, too bad to stay, and continued with a wholefoot of soul searching. I now know i have pretty much emotionally checked out of the relationship. Except for the kids, there is nothing else that naturally ties us together and we haven't slept together in a year.

We basically coexist as friends, the atmosphere in the house is fine but sometimes I feel like my head is going to pop because surely something has to happen/change and I don't know what the next step should be. As its all come from me my DH seems to have decided to carry on as normal unless I suggest otherwise..

I am a sahm, we have a joint mortgage on the house, three kids ages 2, 4 and 6. I don't think we can afford to do anything but stay in the same house until I can earn a decent wage again.

Does anyone have any experience of living together like this, any suggestions on how to do things would be hugely appreciated..
