Nearer The End....hopefully

My husband and I have been together for 14 years. Our sex drives have always been mismatched. He is 12 years old than me and in the being things were reasonable. We would be intimate 1 or 2 times a month. This has gradually decreased over time and now the position is that haven't had sex in 16 months.

I have stuck out for a while due to the fact that I couldn't afford to leave as I only work part-time. I have looking for full-time employment which is difficult but I have a second interview for job which I think I have a good chance of getting. I hope that I will be able to see light at the end of the tunnel although I am scared of the tasks that lie ahead of me.

I have read this board for a number of years and some of the stories have brought tears to my eyes. I am encouraged by people supported for others and hope that will give me strength to get through the hard times that lie ahead

You can do it!

Thank you for all you responses...I'm trying to keep strong and focused

You can do it! Stay your corse

From what I sense from your post, I think you have the strength, because you are taking proactive steps to make it so. As you know, scared is OK, hope is not! Your will matters most.

I hear ya -- But I hear you twenty years down the line. It was the same at 30+ as it is at 50+.

Keep the faith in your decision - because as you know and I lived, it will not get better if you stay. When you falter and second guess yourself, keep in mind that it really is "as bad as you remember."
