Our expert says:
Couples counselling would be wise as one of the birthday gifts. I worry when a woman expects to be treated " like a queen" but doesn't think it necessary to treat her spouse "like a king" - in other words, when one partner expects the other to pwersistently woo them, without feeling any need to reciprocate.
If you have always arranged the special outing for her birthday, of course she will notice if you don't - and I don't see how that could have any useful effect for you or her. Wuldn't it be better to use the opportunity while away to talk, calmly and gently about your concerns, and your wish to work with her to restore what you both most valued in the mariage ?
