Our expert says:
If we set aside the fact that you're talking about a gay relationship, all of what you describe could apply to any married or long-term relatonship, gay or straight. And what one would recommend, in either case, would be mariage / relationship counselling. Problems often arise where there are both personal, intimate and business relatonships intertwined ; and the involvement of a FAMSA type counsellor who can be neutral but help you each to explore and understand each other's concerns, and to discover whether you can find satisfactory solutions for these. Preoccupied with dealing with the series of business problems, you may have both let the relationship side of things slide without putting specific effort into it. As one ages, one may also start to look up and look around from a relatonship you started when younger and with less long-term thinking involved, and start to feel you may have been missing something, whether or not you have actually missed anything. Think about counselling. Some gay organizations, I gather, are able to advise on gay-friendly therapists and counsellors, meaning folks who can be helpful neutrally, without having their own prejudices and hobby-horses dominating the proceedings.
