I Too Am In A Sexless MarriageI too am in a sexless marriage. My story is very similar to the many others here. My wife and I are both 56 years old and have been married for 35 years. This didn’t happen overnight. Our two adult sons live on their own.
I live in an emotionless, touch less and sexless relationship. She freely admits that she has zero libido and does not like to be touched. She mentioned this to her Dr and the Dr offered to work with her to try some things but she won’t follow-up
So I find myself in a relationship with a woman who has no desire to be intimate with me in anyway. She certainly never initiates and refuses me. So MANY false hopes. So I have given up after all these years.
I am trying to deal with the lack of intercourse BUT I can’t cope without any form intimacy. My heart is breaking for the touch and embrace of a woman.
I would like to think that there are still women my age out there want to be with a man emotionally and physically.
What are my options:
1) Stay and endure, (Can’t cope, I won’t spend the rest of my life like this)
2) Affair (Messy, complicated and people get hurt) (But should I try and see where it goes)
3) Divorce ($ and people get hurt)
I should say that I am not without my faults.
I see no hope in my future right now.
For me it is not about the lack of sex it is about wanting to be with a women who wants to be with me and me with her.
