Married 38 Years
I am married 38 years now and live in a sexless marriage, I have read lots of stories about this subject and one writer said every ones story is different.
My wife is unwell suffering from a constant back pain down at her tail bone and has arthritis. This has a lot to do with her lack of interest in sex.
What I cant understand is hugs, kisses and cuddles and kind words are a thing of the past also, we have a wonderful family and 2 grandchildren which my wife has not trouble baby sitting. Lifting them in and out of the bath is no trouble at the time, but suffers after wards.
I used to say to her all the time about out lack of sex and the answer I get is "Is that all you think about" so I have stopped asking and am really confused about it all.
Having an affair or leaving is not the answer i would be looking for, she is a very kind person and has said to me in the past to leave and go and meet someone else. I just could not do that.
For anybody reading this, I have not made it very clear for an answer, as I write I think the real answer is. "There is light an the end of the tunnel" and I can only hope that some day my wife will get well again.
