Am I a fool

Hi guys! I have a gorgeous little boy, just the one sadly but know I’m blessed to have him!! My hubby is a good man but like with us all has good & bad points. I do have feelings for my husband still (14 yrs together) but question whether we are together purely for our son😔 He can be very selfish at times and hard on our 7 year old which leaves me questioning which one is the child😳 We only ever do family things if I initiate it, he’s never one of these Dad’s that has the family up of a weekend in the car and bundled off out somewhere. My hubby is quite content sitting all day long playing some form of computer game. Now our son has got to 7 he must love the fact he can play too the likes of Roblox, Minecraft, etc. Tonight it was bedtime and my son was saying to me how unfair Daddy was on Minecraft when it was bedtime and he couldn’t be on it and my hubby just snapped and said “he was an adult who could do what he liked”. Completely unreasonable in front of our son. My hubby never seems bothered finding time for the 2 of us, just tells me when you have children it’s the sacrifice you make. I came from a very traditional family home where we all did things together whereas my husband I don’t think he did. At times his behaviour makes me think to myself why on earth did he ever marry??!! Just don’t know if Im feeling the middle age blues and being sensitive or what!! My hubby can never discuss anything either, he’s either dismissive or defensive. I love my son dearly and don’t want to see him torn between 2 parents but sadly I’m not sure my marriage will last forever.
