Hi dottyteacup,

It's really sweet of you to be emotionally available to your fiancee - however, it's important to understand that you can't fix the issue for him. It may feel like you aren't solving the depression itself, but doing what you are is providing him an outlet for his emotions, and a person who they feel comfortable talking to. It's likely that he may need support from professionals (GP etc)x

Much love <3
