I Live In a Sexless Marraige

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 76 People

    I just had a friend suggest I try an

    antidepressant to suppress my libido to save my marriage. When I brought it up with another friend she offered me some of her Prozac. Is it me or does it just seem absurd to suppress my natural urges to save an otherwise happy marriage?

    No Self-worth Leads To Fear Which Leads To Bad Decisions

    I wrote down yesterday some of my thoughts on my approaching wedding and posted it on this forum. Then I would compulsively check back in to see what people would say. Well guess what? I'm in the ILIASM part of this site so what did I expect they would say? Basically that it's a...

    I try talking to my husband about my loneliness

    and despair without attacking him, but his response if anything is, "I'm sorry you feel that way." Which really means your stuff, your problem and then he hides behind our daughter because we can't discuss such things when she's around. She's always around. We rarely spend...

    I Am Craving Once Again The Touch

    I am craving once again the touch. The touch of someone feeling my skin, wanting to caress it. The want to kiss my neck and play with my long hair. The playfullness of a new couple. The newness of a morning kiss. The soft kiss that I haven't felt in so long. The longing for...

    When I was in my wife's car today, I suddenly found myself saying, "maybe a few more years from now we should get divorce. We r keeping this family together because of our kids. But I can't go on with this life." My wife was calm. Nothing ever shocked her. "I don't think u will...

    Sexless Marraige And Decisions

      I have been married for 15 years, have a few kids and have had no sex for about 8-9 years with my husband. We get along, he may be gay or perhaps just asexual. He is a bit older than me. He has had blood tests and they came back fine. To be honest, I am no longer...

    Had reset sex last Saturday.

    Last time before that was November. I've taken to making a new calendar in my phone marking each occasion. Should be fairly easy, as last year was 9 times total - with 3 of them happening the week we were on vacation.

    Just "celebrated" our 20th anniversary.

    That would mean it's been about 15 years since we have had sex. It has been so long. That it's embarrassing . I'm thankful for this forum as this is the first time I have shared this anywhere. I have stayed for the kids and my youngest will be graduating in 2 years. I have...

    The Ultimate In 'roommate Status'

    Hi, everybody. It's been awhile

    since I posted. My husband saw a book I bought called, 'should I stay or should I go' by Lundy Bancroft. He asked me to sit down and talk explaining why I should stay, promising me the world and asking me to go back to counseling with him once a week. My own therapist told me...
