| | Re: If your Spouse became Ill How Long Do You think you Could you Go Without Sex?
As my wife is in th early stages of an incurable disease this topic sparked some interest for me. I would say that if my wife was in a short term situation such as a year long rehab, or a situation where we knew that we would be able to continue our sex lives, or adjust our sex life to be mutually fulfilling eventually, then I would be willing to obstain from sex. I can't imagine the crushing feeling of not only dealing with the current issues but also worrying or dealing with your partners unfulfilled sexual needs.
However, if my wife or I was unable to ever have sex again, then I would want to discuss the possibilities with her of ways to fulfill our sexual needs. I can't say what that would entail as I haven't had the conversation yet. From my perspective I think I would rather we hire an escort for her in my home and with me there, i would be able to handle it. Although my wife usually climexs without penetration, so sex might possibly not be a need for her. I would think I could still be happy as long as I knew we still loved each other. If she was the one unable to have sex, then I would want her perspective on what she would be the most comfortable with as far having sex with a partner outside the marriage. Although at (27) it feels like sex is a life need, it's possible that my perspective will change if/when anything does god forbid happen to one of us. Overall I think I would be open to either of us continuing to have sex with other partners if the other was never going to be able to again. I don't feel like this would break our vows to love and care for each other as long as both shall live.
