How do I hold onto my marriage when there is no common bond or intimacy?

We can't hold a conversation together. The blame is always pointed at me. We have no intimacy.

How recent is your awareness of a lack of intimacy?

If this is recent or sudden then the best road forward is have a conversation with your partner on the way you feel.

Depending on the result and whether you'd like to try this conversation several times in order to see your partner's receptivity to explain their side, you will know how likely the lack of intimacy will continue.

If you are living with a lack of intimacy for what feels like a long time, such as a few years, and your partner is unwilling to talk with you about it, then you may have reached the end of the road of intimacy returning.

Whether or not you'd want to live this way becomes the next question.
