Our expert says:
The "silent treatment" is manipulative and a refusal to engage with any chance of sorting out whatever problems are present. But I'm worried by your references to the issue of sex and your fear of pain in association with this --- this is where a good local shrink could he,p a lot, whether there is vaginismus or other psychologically based physical discomfort, and fear or and expectation of discomfort. He shouldn't be making you feel bad about this, but one can understand he could find your equivocating on this to be frustrating, especially if he has been made to feel unable to help ; and at least he has apparently stuck around. SO, once the primary fear you have has been dealt with ( which, with CBT methods ought not to take long ) mayeb a few sessions of couples counselling would also help to smooth out whatever wrinkles have arisen
