Three weeks ago I found out my husband has been in a cybersex relationship for the past 2 years with his ex fling. He says he was never physical with her, but they masturbated to each other for the past 2 years. During the past two years he has shown me hardly any physical or emotional intimacy. I have craved it, but he many times rejected me saying he was too tired or stressed out. He is very sure that he wants to stay with me and mend our relationship. For some reason I have been wanting him sexually more than ever, but he is still rejecting me. I have always wanted him to want me, but he doesn't show that at all. I am so confused as to why he wants to stay with me so bad. It hurts so bad that he had such a high sex drive with her but not with me.
