Do you two do things together? Maybe suggest a little getaway or activity/adventure, if he says no, then I think you have a bigger issue on your hands. possibly unhappy, depression? Have a little sit down with him and talk.

Has he always been this way or is this new behavior?

He sounds depressed. But it also seems like he has a tendency for passiveness. Has he expressed a desire to change? Is he receptive when you talk? Like agreeing a date night or a hobby together?

Bee, we can’t diagnose depression from here, but, an evaluation sounds like a great idea.  If he is, indeed, depressed, he needs treatment.  Many people struggling with depression benefit from meds and therapy.  But, *he* has to make the choice.

Having a baby sounds like a truly horrible idea.

Beyond that, there isn’t anything you can do but decide if you can life out your life this way.

In terms of never planning a vacation, outing, date, etc… that is my husband to a T. I’ve complained about his lack of planning and nothing ever changes. Some people are just like that. So you’re going to have to do the planning. My husband complains on vacation too and wants to stay in the hotel while I do not. So from now on I’m not going to plan any busy activity based vacation with him. If I want to do something busy, I will go alone or with a friend if I can find anybody.

And honestly my husband is the same. He comes home, eats, watches his TV show (and it’s the same one he’s seen over and over!! Ugh), and goes to sleep. So yes, anytime we go somewhere I suggested it.

On the bright side, you’re usually going to get to go where you want since you planned it. Plus with the coronavirus, where else is he going to go or do right now? Nowhere and nothing
