The fact that you and your husband have had tand managed this frustration in non-complimentary sexual patterns for 8 years says much about your relationship.
Non-complimentary sexual patterns in relationships are very common. You rarely ever find a couple where both partners what sex equally as often and always at the same time of day. It may be helpful for you to know that especially at night, when men are sleeping, the body in essence runs "checks" which includes peaks in testosterone a number of times during the night an early morning as well as men experiencing a number of nocturnal erections throughout the night as well as morning. Thus it is not all that uncommon for men to desire sexual encounters during these times should they wake to it.
What is important though is that as a couple you need to have an open and honest discussion about this and come to a mutually agreed upon understanding that suites you both. It is also absolutely healthy and normal for your husband to masturbate at times to releive his sexual tension if it is at a time that is not convenient for both of you to have sex.
