Dear Annie: I am retiring at the end of the week and am worried. I have been married for 27 years to my second husband. For the past 24, he has not once touched me, said “I love you” or displayed any affection. He is a good stepfather to my children and a wonderful grandfather, but there is absolutely nothing for me.
I am a very social person, but he is happy reading or working in our garden. When we do something together, it is invariably what he wants to do. We go where he wants to go and eat what he wants to eat.
