Our expert says:
If I understand you, then, you are uncertain of the basis of this marriage, and uncertain of your husband's love ? Some people, especially some men, do find difficulty being emotionally expressive and supportive. Yet you say he WAS suportive emotionally at first, but this has waned.
Its not clear whether he has no love in his heart, or whether, whatever is in his heart, he has great difficulty expressing it and communicating it. Some guys handle a woman crying, very badly - they feel they must do something appropriate in response and have no idea what to do, and that makes them feel angry
I am sure your sons will learn fro your love and your ability to express it. Kids who never experience expressed love and other emotions from their parents, never learn how to do it ( maybe this is what happened to your husband ) ; but so long as one parent is fluently loving, kids learn how to do it right.
Have you tried ( unemotionally and practically, as he wouldn't handle an emotional appeal well ) to persuade him to join you in some marriage counselling sessions, so at least he ca understand your view better, with the assistance of the counsellor, and maybe to learn to be more able to understand and express his own emotions.
