I certainly wasn’t happy with the sudden decrease in “quality” time and just wanted to understand what had happened. Did I need to wear more, or wear less when we went to bed? I had shopped at Victoria’s Secret buying lingerie and perfumes trying to get him to pay attention to me again. I tried going to bed wearing nothing and tried going to bed wearing men’s flannel pajamas. I showered every night, put on fresh make-up, wore perfume. Nothing I did made him interested in me. I couldn’t understand how he could be happy with getting hugs or kisses only if I gave him one when before it was him who had wanted hugs every time we left for work or came home at the end of the day.
He talked about issues dealing with his ex-wife or son, and would say that he was happy with me, but had no reason or explanation for why he no longer wanted physical contact. He would commit to trying date nights as an exercise to improve things between us, but then as soon as we left the office, he left that commitment behind as well. I had a good relationship with my in-laws, but Marc and my issues were not ones that I felt needed their input. They were aware that we were getting counseling, but otherwise they weren’t interested in what was going on—right or wrong—in our marriage, which was fine with me.
Since we didn’t know the exact date, we decided his birthday was June 2nd—about six weeks prior to when he was adopted. To decide on a name for him, we each made a list of names we liked and voted names off our lists until we arrived at the final three. The movie “Starship Trooper” had recently been showing on TV and Ryan and I were big fans. He loved to play games that involved role-playing… secret agents on spy missions to save the world. We would create elaborate plots, fake ID cards with our pictures on them, and imaginary super powers and weapons to battle enemies.
