A genuine concern because that's what happened to me. 3 years ago, my husband approached me and suggested that we "start fresh" and I went forward with him on this. For about two years things did indeed get better. We had great sex and then it all blew up and became even worse. You have a legitimate fear.
I will admit that it's worse to have it all dry up and be back to nothing.
