true..that is why I sometimes think,maybe I should not have gotten married...still have my kids off course...I think a lot of times after marriage couples take each other for granted.

I tis really hard is stay close when you have kids and so much to do. We have three kids and often I will think to myself that I can't remember the last time we really talked because we get so busy with "real life" and the other things that get in the way. I think that you have to get him to notice you again. You have to take good care of yourself and be busy, not very accessable. It is sad to think that you have to play games, but if talking to him doesn't work this probably will. Men get bored with things that are too easily accessable to them. If something is predictable it is not as much fun anymore. I am sure that he loves you, it is just easy to ignore the problems because he knows he "has" you. A lot of people will say that you need to make a effort to spend more time with him or what not, but what you need to do is be elusive so that he wants to spend more time with you.

I wish that I can help but I have 4 children and been married for 6 years and been togerher for 9 years. We are doing the same thing that you are going through. The kids take up our time then we take turns on the internet then it is time for bed. It is the same thing everyday.
