Husband as emotionally shut me out.

My husband immediately comes home and locks himself in his bedroom. He always wants me to leave for the weekend so as he says he will have peace. No matter what I say he indicates to me that I am creating drama. I stay by myself all day long in the spare bedroom. I am afraid to say anything as he will describe it as drama. I am a communicator and communication is so important. He has all the power financially and now the emotional. I am at my wits end.

I am so sorry to hear of your situation and I'd like to give you some advice on the matter.

I suggest you start by analyzing the circumstances surrounding the time when he started this behavior.  Was there anything stressful happening during this time?  Has ha shut out anyone else in his life besides you?  

If he has any close friends perhaps you can try asking them for a second opinion because they would know him well enough to make an accurate judgement call.

Most importantly, you need to become financially self-sustaining.  It is great to have a husband that provides, but it is also important to have your own resources.

Good luck with everything and let us know if you have any more questions.
