Obviously we have no context as to who this man is as an individual and a husband, and can only reply based on what you’ve said.

That said, this incident alone would not concern me. It’s something a partner would say when they feel safe enough to share their concerns. Maybe he is afraid.

Your losing interest in things you previously enjoyed indicates depression, which can suck years from our lives if we let it. I would encourage you to meet with a therapist to discuss this and your eating do recovery – and by the way, congratuations on that!

It seems a little selfish to me, especially considering his ex-wife citing that as the demise of their marriage.

What is more concerning to me is your symptoms of depression.  You need to see a professional ASAP and talk with them honestly about your feelings.  You should probably also hold off on TTC until you have your depression under control.

My opinion on what you have shared is that he was speaking honestly. I don’t think it was a selfish comment but a concerned one. If you’ve stopped enjoying concerts and other fun things with him, then to him maybe sex is all you have left that you both enjoy together? It’s sounds to me like he asked if your interest in sex goes what other activities do you have to enjoy together. 

Im sorry for what you are dealing with on a personal level. Feeling better about yourself will make you feel better about every relationship.
