This is actually a fairly common complaint. I think part of it may be that at first one is so preoccupied with all the busy-ness of life, work, home, and kids, that one doesn't tend to pay close attention to the relationship itself. And drinking never helps anyone.
Its not that there's something WRONG with you, but the relaionship itself is ailing, and seeing a marriage counsellor would be a really wise idea. The problem needs to be better understood and worked on by both of you, and is likely to be soluble, to the benefit of both of you. At the very least this option is well worth trying
