I have read several times here on TAM about husbands who lose attraction for their wives when the wife is over a certain weight. They may not even be able to get erect.
My weight has been up and down over a forty-five or so pound range since I met my husband. Yet his attraction is constant.
For that matter, my mood never affects his attraction, either. His desire is consistent, regardless of what I say or do.
From what I read here, it looks like a lot of work to try to keep some men happy. Dug keeps himself happy. Good thing, because I would probably give up if it were too hard to please him.
Anybody else out there with a low maintenance husband? Do you like it that way, or would you prefer a challenge?
I wouldn't call Dug low maintenance, because you have had to do a lot of work to get him to support you emotionally the way you need it sometimes. It does not come naturally to him to give you what you naturally want, so you've had to talk and sometimes fight or beg him for that attention. If he was truly low maintenance, you wouldn't have ever had to do those things, either.
In fact, some women would consider the steps you've had to take to get him to give you the emotional support you need to be way too high of a maintenance job to do to keep a guy would might give up.
OTOH, there are really so many men who will keep up a constant line of desire for their wife, regardless of her mood or weight (within reason), and we hear from them a lot, too. I don't think it is that uncommon for a man to feel about his wife (and would agree this is a low maintenance man in that sense, one who desires their wife without her having to "do" anything).
I think what we need and want out of relationships that personally fulfills us is very different, person to person, woman to woman, man to man. I personally wouldn't want a man who wanted me "no matter what", because I would feel this is completely impersonal and that it is just a reflection of his natural sex drive and nothing to do with me specifically. I want to be specifically wanted (and I want to want my man specifically).
