6 Year Marriage, Still Less Than Once A MonthI really don't know how this is ever going to get better. She says it will, she always says it will, it never does.
I just can't get past the guilt of leaving her over it even though it's making me miserable.
I don't want to be reliant on someone else for happiness, and there are lots of other things I am happy about, but without the intimate relationship I don't feel happy or comfortable in this marriage.
The last time we talked she said something along the lines of not liking being relied on for my happiness. Maybe me wanting sex more often is actually the turn off? But I don't just want sex for the release, I want to make her happy too. Sex with us has always been great, selfless and mutually pleasing.
6 years is going to turn into 20 and then where will I be? An old man who gave up sex to stay with the mother of his children cause he felt too guilty to do what would make him happy. How is that a good foundation for a marriage?
