I am glad that you wrote to us and you feel we would be apt to share your feeling with. It indeed must a really monotonous to lead the same way of life with out a small break. You also mention that you expect your husband to give you some complements, and this would make you feel good. You also feel that it would be wonderful if you both could travel and spend sometime together.

At the same time you also mentioned about financial tension and hence your husband doesn't show much interest in these activities. How about coming with solutions that could help him with his financial issues. When you say financial issues it could be money constrains. For this what you could do is :

1. Try savings from your salary if you are working, then use it when needed.

2. Save from your family expense and use it when needed for the trip.

2, If you are a housewife - look for some job or work from home option and be a helping hand.

With these the pressure and burden on him would be lighter.

When it comes to complementing you, or making love, or even spending time together - try looking at some appropriate time and express your feelings to him. Help him understand how exactly you feel and what would make you feel better. Also ask him what he feels.

Try and have an open conversation. For any relationship to bloom it is important to have a very clear and open conversation.

Have a great time, and do get back to me if need be.
