Should we separate?

I am a 39 year old male who has been married for 7 years. We have been together 10 years and due to childhood cancer i am sterile. We have been undergoing fertility treatment (sperm donation) for 5 years but have not had any cyxlws for the last year.

I love mh wife but she has been pushing me away steadily for about 2 years, i do everything i can, help in the house, cook, wash, plan romantic nights etc. Problem is she doesnt seem interested in a physical relationship at all. All she does is critisise me, nothing i do is good enough.

We clearly are not happy, yet if i ask her she says she is - am i fooling myself or shoukd we call it a day?

Infertility is very hard on marriages. Have you tried counseling? Having a 3rd party to talk to and communicate more about what is going on might be helpful. It's worth a shot before calling it quits.
