Re: Lack of Affection/Sex Enough to Derail a Marriage?
Lack of Affection/Sex Enough to Derail a Marriage? YES YES and YES!
Once a week is not bad in the least. I could only wish i were getting it once a week! now once a month is another story.
As people get older their priorities change. My husbands top priority 6 years ago was sex @ #1 on his to do list. Now it not on the top 10 or even 20 to do list. for me sex/affection has always been in the top 5 with sex being #1.
Talking does very little to help the situation, in my experience anyway. The time inbetween seems to get longer and longer every time i bring it up. It will not get any better you will have to learn to compromise (I really hate that word.) or leave.
I have invested almost 14 years in my marriage. SO i know what you mean. It is hard to leave after you have put yourself in a relationship for so long.
I agree with MEM:
Notice you got a reaction that was all about her. Not once did she ask "what do I need to do to make YOU HAPPY". It was ALL ABOUT HER. That isn't going to change until she sees you packing. Is that the basis you want for getting temporary decent treatment?
My h does this to me too it is always all about him!!
I do wish you the best of luck!
