I feel that people who demand to be loved, as your wife apparently does, have some duty to try to be lobeavle, rather than being as unpleasant as they can as a sort of challenge.
She may not at first like the idea of marriage counselling ( though if she saw it as a way to deal with the problems SHE thinks she has with you, she might go along with it. Maybe at first, though, some direct personal counselling for you would help you deal with this sad situation better and to prepare for couples counselling, and how to prepare the best way to eventually suggest this to her.
If she is still reading books about depression, it may well still be active in her, though something she may not want to recognize and face.
