In brief: Seek counseling
There are many possible explanations, including negative self-esteem, possible medical conditions, different views of the relationship, contributions of values, etc.
The most troubling part is his unwillingness (or inability) to be straightforward about what is going on. He may be more open in counseling, but maybe not. More men than women are uncomfortable talking in therapy. Good luck!
