Our expert says:
It's entirely understandable that you would find this conduct hurtful. it puzzles me that people who ask others to respect their "need for space" so often show so very little respect for their partner's feelings. As the old character in a childrens book was named : Mrs DoAsYouWouldBeDoneBy. Unless you have done something dreadful, especially in the area of infidelity, it's hard to understand any reasonable excuse for being so deliberately hurtful and inconsiderate. It's excellent to hear that you two will be going for counselling next week, as you will surely learn a lot in that experience, and will have the opportunity to express how hurtful these decisions of hers have been, and how you feel about the necessary components of afection and love, as well as sex, within a marriage. maybe it's best to be patient until then, to ensure that the counselling gets started and on course.
