Coexist In a Sexless Marriage

It is amazing to see how so many people are in similar situations. I think everyone at some time feels like they are alone and does not have an outlet for the many emotions that have piled up over the years.

I am a married man with 2 kids that coexists in a sexless marriage. I live in Jacksonville, Fl. Leaving my kids is not an option at this time. I am not looking for a pity party, but I am looking for a friend. I have been married for 13 years and have done all the little things that a loving husband is suppose to do. I think I have been turned down so many times I just quit trying. After we had our second child my wife had no interest in sex or any form of intimacy. I have noticed over the years that she has no real motherly instincts or affection for the kids when they get hurt. It almost appears like she does not know how to be sensitive or affectionate. We have had discussions about all of these topics and nothing seems to get better.

I am at the stage where life is to short not to have a wonderful experience with a woman. It's not about sex. It's about self worth. It's about the value I place in myself and another human being.

Is there anyone in Jacksonville that is married, lonely and looking for a friend?

I understand You see I am the wife with medical problem but I need hug and kisses and to be touched but I don,t get It from my husband i guess it has been to long for him to try. I am here if you need to talk.

Believe me, my friend..I understand..what I have learned is that it is about sexuality, imtimacy, and, most of all, about respect. How much personal respect do you recieve? Are you still a person in your own marriage?...If tou want to talk, I am here for you...God Bless..

Sorry to welcome you to the club. Before you look outside your marriage for a "friend" please make every effort solve your marriage issues. It sounds like your wife may have a medical problem that's not been diagnosed. Also, if you feel she's not affectionate with the kids, PLEASE TELL ME why you wouldn't want to leave and take them with you and find a woman to love you all? PHYSICALLY. Because children are also harmed by not seeing 'normal' love and affection between their parents as well as from yelling and screaming.

Brother... I call you that, for you are a brother who shares the same plight that I do. <br />
