Stuck In The Middle
I married my friend. I've been with him for over a decade years. I thought because he was stable, kind, loving, reliable and an amazing father, I'd love him. Now, I am in a sexless marriage. We love one another have children and turns out my DH has a crippling case of anxiety which led us to this place. We are separated but living together and love eachother dearly, but I don't want to live the rest of my life in a sexless marriage or when we do have sex it's forced, and I feel like I'm lying every moment just to try to love him in an intimate way. How do you leave a man you love and respect but after years of neglect and deliberate withholding of affection because you want to have genuine natural intimacy? Help me. I assure you it can't be fixed and I've done EVERYTHING you could advise to fix this issue.
