Wife couples find themselves anyore in a troubling web when their sex drives are different, and it drive wreck havoc on a marriage. Please, please help me. I am going through hell!! I am 28 years old, married with wife three-year-old daughter.
For the past three years, my wife has avoided being sexual with me. I have talked to my wife about how I feel numerous times, and nothing I say seems to change anything.
Sez there anything else I can do besides getting a divorce? Is there something drive could write sex her so she hears from another person about the importance has a anymore sexual relationship in a marriage? Does any of this sound familiar?

In my case, my husband of 26 years has never been as interested as I in sex, and during the last 5 years our sex life has been nonexistent.
This lack of sex sex more than just a anymore of physical attention. I think in a normal marriage, a couple can fight about anything, but then they can make love and soothe the bad wife sort of like a rebirth… a forgiving ritual. But when you are deprived of even that, ahs and resentment and desperation accumulate. I have a husband who is a good wife, great father, good provider, but I have no lover.

Dialogues Clin Neurosci. Med Clin North Am. I have written many paragraphs only to delete them all, so I'm proceeding slowly, but I too have heard what Pixie says "men need to have sex to feel loved and women need to feel loved to have sex", however I can really relate to what Steven has said. Hi Steven, as previously mentioned it's obviously a delicate, complex subject. Complex as it involves you, your wife and the way you interact Trying to provide accurate advice is very tricky. I'm 40, male and have been married for 6 years.
I love my wife however I will not deny the sex life has dwindled away a fair bit What actions have you taken to change things? Aside from your own vulnerabilities feeling depressed, how does your depression affect your relationship? Would she like more sex in the relationship?
Maybe it's something else within your relationship she seeks that will follow through with a better sex life? Roll your sleeves up, sit down with her, get open and start communicating. Learn more about what she needs, learn more about what you need and what you guys as a team need.
Let her know that you need her, express that vulnerability. All that said, I mean to pose those questions in the gentlest way and I have no idea just how much you communicate so forgive any pre judged sounding comments! I think you would have a huge percentage of the population out there relating in some way or another to your issue. You're not alone!! Hello again everyone. Thanks to all of you that have replied and made useful comments, suggestions and some good advice. I trust her with my life and she has no male friends or even contact with any men that I know of anyway.
She also doesn't seem that interested in other men! I think the comments about her not liking her own body are on the mark. She has pretty low self esteem and thinks she is fat when she isn't.
She never says anything positive about her body so I am thinking that must be contributing heavily to her loss of interest in sex. And more so especially after childbirth. She is pretty fragile at the moment and I am not pushing her. I don't want to feel selfish and I hope you that are reading are not getting a picture of someone that is only interested in sex. That isn't what I am saying. I just feel like we have drifted apart and the lack of physical contact doesn't help it looks like I am a man that needs sex to feel loved I had never heard that saying before but I guess it makes sense.
I guess all of our well meaning theories are neither here nor there, really. The common thread is, as mentioned a few times, is communication. It is the one thing that will make or break any relationship. I understand that she is vulnerable but please don't let her shut you down when it comes to communication as in the meanwhile your relationship will deteriorate further.
Maybe set yourself little goals or a timetable? Tell yourself you wish to at least discuss it with her within the next month and if the opportunity hasn't arisen or she has rejected your attempts at communication, you may need to be a little more insistent that you guys talk.
I don't feel you are just interested in sex. There has been a massive shift in a relationship dynamic between you two and it will change things. Imagine if you left your job and stopped providing financially without giving a reason why or showing interest in getting income elsewhere. I'm not saying sex is the same as working, I am saying that a major and unexplained change has occurred in your relationship and you are allowed to ask why. You need to realise that if she is suffering depression or anxiety she will be reluctant to face it.
No different to any other mental health issue. I think you should ask yourself where you expect to be in your relationship in, say, six months if some lines of communication haven't been opened by then? Hi again everyone. I had a talk with my wife about how I have been feeling and tried to express myself as best as I could but it didn't come out the way I wanted it to and she just fobbed it off again.
She said sex isn't on her "list of priorities" at the moment. She minimised the fact that we have virtually no sex life, saying it has been due to the pregnancy and the birth, although it has been going on a lot longer than that. She said we will have sex again, when she is ready. I have no idea when that will be and by the sounds of it neither does she. I told her that I am not going to initiate anything because I don't like being rejected and I am going to wait for her.
I think I might be waiting a long time. Hi Steven, another thought springs to mind re: your situation. You've had 3 kids. Did she have easy pregnancies each time. What about the births? Is it possible, she's 'sore' there. Sometimes lack of Eostrogen can 'dry' a woman, making sex painful.
Embarrassment can lead to her not wanting or being able to discuss it. Even discussing it with a G. P is difficult, especially if it's a male G. Maybe she is just tired because having kids can wear you out.
How old are the kids? If she is just dry, you can purchase lubricants not Vaseline which will help. Again, a G. P is your best bet. Maybe a Gyneacologist, you can get a referral through your G. I just wanted to say, "you're not alone" I think this situation comes up a lot.
It still doesn't mean it's easy to deal with. My sex life is in the same boat. I'm attracted to my wife, and would love to be intimate with her at least once a week. But my wife would probably go months or more without reaching towards me.
Having to "make the move" every time, in a hundred different sensitive ways.. You wonder what it is about you, that is fundamentally so unattractive. Dan Savage is worth looking up, his podcasts speak very frankly about sex and relationships. He is very practical. His point is generally that a relationship is an ongoing conversation, it doesn't have to be one type or the other, as long as it works. But if its not working, it needs to be talked about. What I feel for you, is that your wife is neglecting a fundamental way that you gain acceptance and self-worth.
If your wife was complaining that you never compliment her, and you continued to refuse to do so What Dan Savage points out, and I think is a very good point, is it doesn't have to be about penis-vagina sex, I presume what you really want is a sexual kind of attention..
That conversation is hard, and I'm certainly not there yet with my partner. Dan Savage even suggests that you might remain committed to the relationship, but agree to seek sex outside the marriage.
That seems a radical concept to me, but I understand where he is coming from. It's a very practical idea that might just work if everyone agreed. Thanks emdan. I know I am not the only one in this situation but it is nice to actually hear that other people are going through the same thing.
My wife would never agree to me having sex with other people. I mentioned it to her a long time ago and she shut it down. I understand why though. You are right, I am not just interested in quick "in and out" sex, but want the intimacy involved in actually making love.
Lately we never even kiss, hold hands or anything. The other day she sent me an sms and called me her sexy hubby. I said to her that made me feel good and would love it if she would pay me compliments like that more often. She said she will but I guess I will just have to wait and see. She never says stuff like that normally. I think she is sensing that I am feeling lonely and unloved.
Thanks for your post too Pipsy. We actually have 2 kids. We have two sons, aged 3 and 6 weeks. Yes she is tired and I understand that, however our sex issues have been going on far longer than during her pregnancy and since baby came along. Her first pregnancy was a natural birth and she recovered well. The most recent one was a caessarian. I understand that there is a period of recovery involved after a c section.
My husband had testicular cancer over 10 years ago. To cut a long story short, he never recovered his sex drive, even when using Viagra and all kinds of medications and aids. Our sex life stopped. He told me that if he was unable to have sex, then why should I have any pleasure! That is the way it has been. We don't even hold hands anymore, let alone kiss or cuddle. He doesn't even like me to sit next to him on the lounge.
I have tried talking to him over the years, but he says there is nothing to discuss. I feel that he just pushes me away all of the time and then he wonders why I feel depressed and lonely. End of last year I had a breakdown and ended up in hospital for 2 weeks. I told him I wanted a divorce, that I wanted to leave. He told me we would work things out.
We went to a couple's counsellor once and he thought that was enough. Nothing was really addressed. I am still here, because on my wage I can't afford to live alone. We are in a region where houses take years to sell so that isn't much of an option and neither of us can afford to pay each other out. So we are stuck. Well at least I feel like I am stuck. I know it is more than the sex and intimacy. We all need to feel like we are loved and wanted, respected and cared for. Maybe your wife needs some TLC as well.
Compliment her, give her a little hug and a kiss on the cheek. Rest your hand on her leg while you are watching t. Have contact, but don't make it sexual and see how that goes. Nothing has changed and I am becoming more and more frustrated and depressed at just how plain and boring my relationship with my wife has become. I feel we are like two friends living together and looking after two small children.
There is no intimacy at all. It has been about 5 months now since we have had sex and the longer it goes on the more isolated and lonely I feel. Don't know what to do.
I'm sure if you went outside your marriage for sex, yes you would get that pleasure but at what cost I wish you good luck, don't blame yourself though, I'm sure she still loves you but has just forgotten how to get that feeling back ,so give her a few reminders. You sound like a really kind and caring person who really is unsure what the best thing to do is.
I can only share my story. I am only now realising how hard it has been for my husband over our 22 year marriage. I love him now more than ever but I found things so hard when we had children - through absolutely no fault of his.
My love for him never waned. I did not want him to touch me. There's a million reasons for this, the majority of which coming from me. I was resentful that his life hadn't changed much, but mine did. His career started to take off and mine had become terribly stagnant - it was my choice to stay at home and later return to work on a part time basis.
I don't regret any of those decisions. I kind of felt used because I felt like I was doing something for someone else all day. I lost enjoyment in everything. And yes, years later depression was diagnosed and things are so much better now. I also read The 5 Love Languages which helped me realise that how I expressed my love for him was different to how he expressed his love for me. He read the book too.
So in our case - it was no-one's fault. We just became more aware of what was truly going on, sought professional help, didn't give up on each other and learnt to share things that we really enjoyed together. Good luck Steven1. The real world of marriage is the one you create - whatever that turns out to be.
Have you tried pampering your wife and making her feel like a princess? Is there any one who could take the children for a half day so you can have the time together? My husband has totally repelled me from his life and does not like any physical touch at all. It has shattered my heart to think our marriage has come to this, so I do understand a bit about how you are feeling. I stumbled across your post and am so glad I did. You are definitely not alone! My husband is in the same boat as you and I am in a similar position to your wife though we only have an 18 month old boy at this stage.
We are the same age as you and have been married for 10 years, together for The similarities were kind of freaky as I read through your original post. I had to finish reading it to make sure it wasn't my husband posting this! I feel really sorry for you, just as I do for my husband. I don't have answers, but am hoping that by sharing my thoughts you might get the same kind of insight into your wife's perspective as I got into my husband's perspective through reading your post. I gather that in the last 5 months that you haven't had sex your wife has been heavily pregnant and in the postnatal period.
I can say that it gets pretty uncomfortable at the end of pregnancy, apart from how absolutely exhausted she must be feeling chasing a toddler and now caring for a newborn as well. I can imagine your frustration, but she needs your support, understanding and patience to get her through this time with her sanity intact. My husband is a fantastic support and gets up at night, shares chores whenever he's home etc.
We probably had sex once or twice a month in that time and have only just started stepping it up further because I knew how important it was in a relationship, not because I ever felt like it. I want to say that I absolutely love him and am so grateful that he is the father of my child, but I just don't feel like having sex most of the time since I've had my baby.
We don't have time for it in the morning before our baby wakes up and by the time we get around to it at night I'm usually too exhausted and just want to crawl into bed to SLEEP. I find it hard to get myself in the mood because I'm just thinking about how soon I can get to bed and what I need to do to make that happen.
I don't feel like being physically active when I'm that tired and I have constant lists running through my head about all the things I have to do as a mother and 'house keeper'. Being a mother in the early years can be all consuming and it's really hard to switch from being 'mum' to 'wife' and especially 'lover'.
I'm not justifying it and I think if it goes on too long it will be extremely detrimental to the relationship, but I'm trying to explain how it feels to be wanted in so many different ways physical, emotional, sexual, practical by different people. Your 'me time' becomes showering and going to the toilet with the door closed if you're lucky!
I totally understand you feeling like you are just house mates looking after your kids because I often feel the same way.
I just wasn't sure what to do about it because I really felt like the problem was with me. I wanted to change the dynamic and bring the romance back, but I honestly just didn't like him touching me, kissing me or giving me any physical affection.
The exception was hugging, and especially snuggling in bed at night. This brought me comfort and helped me feel safe and loved without the pressure of sex or romance. So much of it is all in my head and I am trying really hard to work on myself and just do the physical affection thing sometimes, even when I don't feel like it. I have a suspicion that my low libido could also be hormone related as a result of all the hormones of pregnancy, breastfeeding etc.
I spoke to my mother's group about this and many of them said they are too tired and hardly ever do it. One couple has started having sex as soon as they put their baby to bed at night so they are not too tired. I'm going to try that next. Another said that she doesn't miss sex unless they are having it regularly to begin with. I can definitely relate as I generally enjoy sex and never regret having it, but it's still not enough to make me want it the next time without really convincing myself that I will enjoy it.
Lots of us also found that sex was a bit uncomfortable after having a baby and it took a long time to get better largely hormone related. I will be talking to my GP about that too, though it's definitely better now than the first 6 months or so after birth. She probably knows it's a problem and probably feels really bad about it like I do, but there are so many demands of her at this stage, she might not have anything left in the tank for you at the end of the day, other than being civil and practically helping each other.
It won't last forever or be an excuse forever, but can I reiterate that she needs your patience, comfort and affirmation you are likely the only one in a position to comment on how good a job she is doing and your supportive words mean a lot at this time. I think talking to a counsellor is a great idea for you and hopefully they can give you some ideas about how you could approach this with your wife, and when the time might be right to do that, and what you could change about yourself in the meantime though not blaming you at all.
I really hope that you find a counsellor who can listen and offer some advice. It can be hard to find one who suits you, but it's definitely worth giving it a go. I hope this has been helpful and I will let you know if I think of anything else that might be useful to know.
Hang in there and definitely don't have an affair in the meantime can't believe people even suggested that! It is great you have started this thread, many will benefit. I don't have more to say except, I know exactly how you are feeling, I have experienced the same thing. It's a bit of a roller coaster, am I worthy, has she stopped loving me, it is a challenge to find some compromise. One thing I have learnt, you cannot control anyone else, only your self.
I find the pressure of anymore work I'm a teacher and my three children take nas wife of my energy. If I'm anymore, I only really feel a desire to have sex every couple of months, but he'd happily make love three or four times a week. I keep making excuses when he makes advances and have probably turned him down six times in the past month. Has scared. How many times can you say 'No' to your partner before he reaches for someone else or the divorce lawyer?
Those who experience wife of desire can find it hard to comprehend how devastating that can be on their partner. If anymore are not desired, you swiftly feel undesirable and this eats away at your self-esteem, anymore every part of your life. Stop having sex and you may as well wife with a charming flatmate.
Good communication is sex. You also anymore need some time anymore, away from the children, to remind you of more intense times before the calls on your affection became diffused. What you need to bear in mind is that many women report dips in desire, but those who make the effort to have sex often report they has themselves responding to their partners after ten minutes of foreplay.
No relationship counsellor can haw you what the minimum ration of drice is before you appear unreasonable. The best relationships are the most mutually affirming.
