Conversing with normal healthy males gives me hope that someday I might end up with a loving relationship verses the hell I live with now. I this kind of situation there are no easy or quick answers but there are answers. Everyone who hurts does, yet people are growing to be the opposite way these days. I have received many emails from women asking me to talk about the subject of husbands not wanting sex and here it is finally! Make some effort to understand your husband's point of view.

So he should be doing at least some sexual initiating and should not be leaving all sexual initiation to his wife. I see nowhere in your question where you have done that.

I continually wonder what I am doing to make my husband so unhappy and unaffectionate, unless I ask for it. I have tried talking to her about it and making time for us as a couple but ultimately she is more involved with our kids lives. To only have him do what you said…. Did she have a hand in the collateral damage in their relationship? Sex begins to take on an overwhelming meaning and magnitude. As you go through the process of resolving the situation, check in with you how are doing. Affection and romance is rarely seen in my house atleast not initiated from my husband.
