I want to Help Him
I have recently learned that my fiancé doesn’t recall his parents ever telling him that they loved him and doesn’t remember much at all in the way of physical affection. I have met his parents several times (they don’t live here) and they are lovely people. He grew up in a nice home and did not go without.
His parents were certainly not abusive and I can see that they care (his mom always sheds tears when we part ways). I knew they weren’t overly affectionate but I didn’t realize to what extent. He actually asked me at one point if my child was getting a little too old for snuggles (still in elementary school), as he has nothing to gauge off of. What can I do to help him? He seems to be bothered and my heart hurts for him.
