Re: Question for Women: Why stay married if your not interested in sex?
My STBXH made the stupid mistake of acting in a way that would make sex with him ridiculously unreasonable (and I am going to file sexual assault charges against him). I told him I could not ever be intimate again, and he proposed a marriage without sex. Stupidest thing I've ever heard. Sure, put me in a position where I don't want sex with you, and then put me in a position where I have to give it up with everyone else, just to stay in a marriage to have the very smallest ever chance in recorded history to get love that I would never accept being expressed sexually? Or worse, put in a positon where I would crave it and cave in and be absolutely humilated by that?
I think not. If the marriage relationship is not one that promotes healthy sexual expression, COUNT ME OUT.
He probably would have used the no-sex agreement with me to scr*w around with other women, and then blame it on me.
Yes, I realize he is abusive. But just saying, no sex = no marriage. Unless there is a medical reason and then there is also sexual expression and caretaking.
