How long can my W go without sex? Some background: both in our mid-40s, married for 20+ yrs. We both enjoy a healthy sex life, usually having sex every 2-3 days, but sometimes daily for a stretch. I almost always initiate, but sometimes she initiates in her own way (by telling me I should initiate). We both have good or gasms when needed.
She had to travel out of state recently to care for a terminal brother. There were several complications related to his eventual death and it was very stressful/emotional. She was gone for 11 days and returned last Saturday. Mentally she is still reeling from his untimely death (age 48), and was not in the mood, which is unusual for her. I have taken on all of the household tasks to allow her time to rest/recover.
But I have noticed other changes, like not grabbing my junk when in passing and not holding my junk while we sleep (which would be normal for us). I asked if she misses the intimacy and she says sure. I told her I would not pressure her for sex but due to the circumstances would wait for her to tell me.
I just wonder how long that will be? (For those who know our past missteps, I seriously doubt she had sex with someone else while she was gone, but you never know for sure).
