You're being passive aggressive. Your boyfriend can't read your mind, and expecting him to is selfish and immature. Love takes charity, and forgiveness. If you want something from him you just need to sit him down and tell him how you feel.

Though if you have a history of being passive aggressive, he might not feel safe enough to be honest with you. I highly suggest you curb your behavior.

Here's a really good book that I think will strengthen the way you approach relationships: The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands https://www.amazon.com/dp/0060520620/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_pS03Bb27EKRN3

Your man is under crazy stress right now. What he could really use is a nice warm cup of love from his wife. Are you the kind of person you would want to come home to, if you were in his shoes? Could you make an effort to be, if you are not?

I don't want to come across as if I'm dumping all responsibility for relationship troubles on you, but you haven't mentioned any especial stress in your life except that he is unavailable. Remember that when he is out doctoring, you are unavailable as well. He can't come home and get a hug when he needs it. He probably misses you a lot. Then he comes home tired and stressed and his wife is grumpy? This is not a recipe for marital success.

>I am afraid you are going to leave after your boards. Tell me you intend to stay and I will try to not (insert sub-optimal behavior). I'm so scared of losing you that it is messing me all up. Tell me you love me and you are not leaving.

Give that one round. Do it a bunch of times and you're saying you're not trusting him when he says he's staying, which sucks for him. After that, try to be pleasant. It's hard to be married to a dr. and it's hard to be newlywed. Hell it's hard to be a family where both people work outside the house - but remember why you got together.

Not everybody likes the author, but this has helped my own wife to understand her husband a bit more. You might have a look at: https://www.amazon.com/Proper-Care-Feeding-Husbands/dp/0060520620

shes 100% marriage and relationship advice, no percent limbaugh other than shes obviously politically conservative.

are you politically liberal and expecting liberal women to treat menwith the respect they desire? i cannot understand liberal/left "RP" people. thats a giant disconnect in my view

>From Publishers Weekly
In her newest book, Schlessinger (10 Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives) relies upon her experience in private practice, radio and letters she received from men and women in tackling the issue of women who mistreat their men and suffer the consequences of unhappiness. The women who criticize their husbands in the stories that Schlessinger relates are depressed in their marriages and feel little love from their husbands. Unabashedly asserting that man is a "very simple creature," who needs only "direct communication, respect, appreciation, food, and good loving'" to respond with devotion, compassion and love, this controversial marriage and family therapist claims that every woman can achieve a deeply satisfying marriage if she adheres to certain fundamentals men require. Preparing dinner, caring for the children without complaint, greeting her husband with a kiss and engaging in sexual intimacy instead of "tearing down a husband's necessary sense of strength and importance" can result in the harmonious marriage women crave. While many of her listeners and readers claim her unequivocal advice has salvaged teetering marriages and improved marital harmony, others perceive Schlessinger as a throwback to what many see as years of female oppression in the home.

"completely shocked as we have not been having issues.". Are you sure he's not seeing someone else? Taking a break is sometimes and easy way to end it.

If he is indeed willing to go to counseling, that's a good sign. What does he say he's upset about?

I'd recommend this book, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands https://www.amazon.com/dp/0060520620/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_OUfgzb4QQYYMT
...one of the best marriage books imo

>Earlier this week, my wife tearfully told me she didn't have romantic feelings for me (not a surprise) and she didn't know that she would be able to get them back.

My guess? Your wife's fallen into the trap of believing that feelings come before behavior (this is quite common amongst women) In truth, behavior shapes feelings.

She needs to read this book:
