I'm grateful this advise would work even if you reversed the genders of the couple being discussed here. Because we men have to lower our expectations, too.

Thank you. I don't know if my ex-member, RM husband's capacity for recreation is an addiction or just normal behavior for one who believes this life is all there is but I do know adjusting my expectations has been a roller coaster. We're finally coming back around to being joyful together as opposed to just together. I wasn't sure we would survive my daughter's passing last year (we have no biological children together) but we have. Recovering from my grief actually helped us dig into our relationship.

As I have pointed out before, when it comes to marriage difficulties discussed in these articles, it seems that husbands are featured in a disproportionate manner: Husbands are to blame; wives are the "better half"!
