Irritated...and can't find a way to get out of this feeling!

Hello Tango Expert,

I have been married for nearly 8 years and we have had many ups and downs. Recently, we moved into a house and things started to become a lot better. In the past 4 months, things have turned around again. I am becoming increasingly frustrated and irritated with my husband. I have expressed to him many times that I am becoming unhappy and that the way he behaves towards me is the cause.

We are a young couple (I am 29 and he is 36)and we never go anywhere together. If we are invited to a wedding or other function, he will not go. It is like pulling teeth to get him to go out and socialize, even when it is just on our own.

Another issue that I have is that he constantly complains about everything.I work 10 hours a day and I still manage to come home and cook dinner for him...but he always complains about what I have placed on the table. I have expressed to him many times that it is really disappointing that he is not more appreciative of my efforts to make sure he has dinner and that it really hurts to feel like my efforts have gone to waste. I have even suggested that maybe he should cook dinner every once in a while to avoid his complaints. He is rarely cooking dinner these days.

All in all, I am really frustrated and just thinking about giving up. I am a good wife and I try my best to meet all of his needs, but I feel like I am sacrificing myself. I also feel like I have voiced my frustrations to him, with no reaction or change on his part. I have no clue what to do next, but a really strong part of me feels like I will be better off alone. How do I get through to him!? Please help!!
