Well Christabel.... you know those feelings you have when you first begin a relationship... we ALL know that they fade some... but if you read my other stories, you will understand. My husband doesn't want to make love at all, no touching, no nothing... we don't even talk anymore... I guess you could say I fell OUT of love with him... not that sex should rule ANY relationship, but it is important... how else can you get closer to a person? How else can you feel attractive, loved, and appreciated? Not to mention WANTED...? When there is nothing else in a relationship, it is easy to stop being IN love with a person but you can still love them....

How do you mean you're not "in love" with him anymore? I think falling out of love happens to nearly every couple... then it's the friendship part of the relationship that really comes into play.

Thanks for the advice Grams... but I honestly, honestly, honestly don't think any of that will work... he's just not interested anymore (actually, he never realy was)... but he is somewhat a pretty decent guy... just not to me....

You need to take time with each other ,take a vacation, set out time for dates, you can rekindle your love if you want to make your marriage work. Romantic dinners at home, God my mind is running wild......stag movies......toys......massages.....a few basic elements to start a fire.....

If he doesn't pay attention, or listen to you, or touch you, then you're very strong to love him. I hope for both of your sakes, that he'll come back to himself for you.

yes, it is sad and I am in the same exact situation...what to do...
