I Thought 'soulmates' Trancends All That Physical Stuff...Well, that was the line my wife gave me a couple of weeks ago.
A friend of mine said a relationship with no intimacy or sex is a/companionship or b/ just friendship. I think they are right.
I asked my wife for a divorce due to the lack of sex/intimacy/affection about 9 months ago...she then said she would go to councelling to save the marriage. This, after 6 years of me asking her to go and at least talk with someone and she never did...and 6 years of me trying litterally everything in the book to get her interested, show me love (she says she loves me deeply though) and help us to both have a 'normal' marriage.
We've been together nearly ten years. Nearly 25% of my life. I just don't know if I can take it any longer...nothing has changed, and I now seriously doubt it will.
Divorced at 41 and starting afresh scares me. A lot. But it may well be worth the risk. I need to be happy and not the ball of stress and frustration that I am.
