Hi DameEdna: There is nothing sadder then seeing the distress of two people you love...We will be married 52 years in a few months...I don't know where the years have gone, but they have disappeared...We have been blessed...We are more in love today then all our yesterdays, but this is us who I speak of and not your parents...Actually I have a Topic on this site that I think is married 50 years...Unfortunately, I lost my password and couldn't sign back on...
Because of my experience in life I know all the years of love...I have seen many people in your parents situation...Most of the problem starts around male menopause...This is a word that is seldom spoken of, but for many men it can be worse than it can be for a woman...This being when their potency comes into being and without proper help from the woman that loves them it can be a rough time in life that eventually both of them can regret...For some unknown reason they think that the true love that they used to know and love has died off and this part of them is gone....Unfortunately, it is a part of them that when kept nutured can be more erotic and mind boggling sexual than any time in their life...
How can you help them?...Try taking them back to their yesterday...Find those places in time that they loved...Find their old sex life...This is the binding in a good marriage...It is up to your Mother to make him whole again...Tell her that a man ages far more swiftly than a woman...Grab him now while he is still young and hold him tight...When she see faults in him not to tell him about it, but to accept it and treasure their time together....
I wasn't going to post here anymore, but seeing this sadness in the post I did want to put in my two cents...I wish you well....
