A committed couple should be able to talk about their deeper feelings, wants, and needs without fear. It's just talk, after all, and hashing things out is what partnership is all about. That one partner's need for discussion on a difficult topic could threaten a marriage speaks more loudly about his level of commitment than hers.
OP, so sorry to know you're going through such a rough time right now, but there will be light at the end of the tunnel, though you probably don't see it yet!
The world opens up... when you do.
