Detailed Question:

I am a 21 year old Indian male and have 5 members in my family. We are three children and I am the middle one. My father and mother don't love each other. I don't see they talk to each other with love. I haven't seen the love in these 21 years. I just think daily what is reason for that? Why they can not love each other?

I can understand as a child with a troubled parenting you have undergone a lot. Your parents difficult relation has affected you mentally and to get back to normal in life, you will need counselling. Consult with a Psychologist with a few sessions to allow the correct thoughts and mindset to be introduced. Discussing your problems will genuinely help you in getting over this phase in life and moving on building your own relations. This is very essential in life for your to progress at a healthy pace too.
