| | Re: No sex during or after pregnancy (18 months total)
Sexuality is at the core of marriage. It's not a selfish need on the part of a male or a female. It is what differentiates a marriage from any other relationship in life.
No sex whatsoever for 18 months, with rejection, and without explanation. Is there a person on this board who thinks that this is acceptable in a marriage?
When a person does not "feel" like sex, they can use their own mind to control their own thoughts and feelings to choose to do anything. That's why it's unproductive for the OP or anyone else to try to "diagnose" his wife from afar. If there is an exceedingly rare medical condition that truly prevents her from having sexual intercourse, then she should have a diagnoses well before 18 months.
The only thing missing is the OP is allowing his marriage to be a coparenting cohabitation instead of a sexual relationship.
