Very Long Time

I have been married for 31 years and have no children.

For the first ten years of our marriage our sexlife was great , frequent and fulfilling.

Then I became depressed and angry at my partner and our sex life has deteriorated to the point where we no longer have sex.

We do discuss it but it is such an emotional topic that we end up hurting each other more.

My partner is very controlling psychologically and I find it difficult to discuss things with him because he is very analytical and not emotional whereas I am emotional and not very analytical.

We don't want to divorce because deep down we care about each other and in a "funny" way love each other.

I feel guilty about my inability to have sex, I have had therapy but it has not worked.

It is good to be able to write about my problem

You should join "I Live in a Sexless Marriage". You wouldn't be the only one there. We all share that pain and loneliness.
