Our expert says:
Dont give up yet, until you each understand each other rather better. Maybe if her parents are not in the scene, and she lost her grandparents, she feels you are the only person around she can try to rely on to be interested in her feelings. But its also common for men and women tom find difficulty in understanding each other's feelings and how they express them.
Just as marriage counselling is always a good idea and a good investment before a married couple decides to split up, I recommend the very similar couples counselling before an engaged / seriosu couple decide to split up - or indeed, before they decide to go ahead and get married if they are already experiencing major emotional difficulties. The counselling shouldnt be meant as a glue to stick you two together come what may, but as a useful exploration to help you understand yourselves and each other better, and to make a better informed decision about marriage.
