Sexless Marriage… What To Do?
Coping with a sexless marriage can be extremely painful, mostly because it leads to a feeling of dissatisfaction and a disconnect because of the lack of intimacy. As beings, we crave that feeling of being connected and a marriage without physical touch and intimacy can quickly feel like a failed marriage. So, what can you do?
There could be many reasons why you’ve become less intimate with your partner, and by the time where you’ve become a sexless couple you don’t even know why you’ve stopped having sex in the first place. Try to pinpoint the origins and reasons why you’ve neglected each other.
Many couples would say it’s because they are busy, but that’s just a surface excuse to a bigger problem. Are you feeling neglected in the relationship, have you made the family a bigger priority than your romantic relationships or have you become bored in bed? These are just a few reasons, try to think of what is influencing the lack of sex in your own life.
Maybe you’ve put sex on such a pedestal that you can’t even imagine being intimate with your partner. Try to find other ways in which you can connect. Increase the amount of physical touch you have daily by giving more kisses, hugs, and cuddles. This could help your body remember why it feels good to be together and connected.
Dealing with a sexless marriage can be daunting and there could be many layers of issues that are leading to your unhappiness. If you really want to tackle the problem head-on, the best advice would be to see a sex therapist such as myself.
