have had 2.5 years in recovery from addiction and now believe I'm married to a codependent. He is stubborn and seriously suffering from symptoms of co-dependency...won't do anything for himself and is negative about everything in the relationship. He is not motivated, listless and not at all proactive in anything...I have to initiate everything...except I clam up intimately.
I do not know how to handle this ....I have learnt to wait for a natural consequence of his behaviour to happen....in the meantime I am suffering too???
