    My husband constantly choses to play video

    games instead of coming to bed with me. It really hurts that I pretty much have to lure him into bed with sex to get him to come lay with me. I just asked him if he would come and lay with me just until I fell asleep and he said that he was in the middle of a match. He then...

    The Title Says It All

    Hubby and I are putting the last year behind us.  It's pretty clear that a lot of the resentment started about a year ago, when the economy started to take it's toll on our business and personal finances.  It's amazing how things can spiral out of control from a trigger...

    When I joined Ep it was because I was looking for websites on sexless marriages. I have learned a lot from being here as pertains to why a spouse would deny sex to their SO. But not much in the way of saving the marriages. And I can understand it all now. I want my marriage...

    The Fight!

    The fight begins when you are tired. You have nothing in your reserves but you must push forward. Love the world even if it doesn't love you. Find strength where there is no strength. Love even though your love has been taken away and you have no love to give.

    I am a wife of a Navy submariner, so because of his schedule we didn't have much sex together in the same country to begin with. We had great communication, and we some how (at least I thought) made phone and video sex work until he would return home. Last August I found out I...
