I left my husband after 26 yrs of marriage, due to ongoing problems with intimacy and communication. I suspect he has Aspergers though has never been diagnosed. I did have an affair and understandably he was angry and distressed about this. I have not entered a new relationship ( the affair came to nothing). I have tried a few times to have a conversation withmy ex to try to restore at least some goodwill, but he always rebuffs me. I think I still love him, but certainly don''t want to be with him as a partner again. Two questions: one is any suggestions re how to engage him in talking to me and second any words of wise from ex or current Apartners of or ''Aspies''. Thank you
