The Curse of Sexless Marriages
The last place you ever want to find yourself is in the tight grip of sexless marriage. This is especially true if you’re someone that has a very high sex drive. A sexless marriage is defined by a couple that only have sex about 12 times a year, that’s once a month at best. It has been reported that about 15-20% of couples are living in a sexless relationship, that’s one in five.
The Causes of a Sexless Marriage
Those who have found themselves in a sexless marriage would say that it’s not something that happens overnight. We would imagine that if it were, people would be ending relationships as soon as it happened. Unless the reasons for the lack of sex are medical, one of the most common causes for a sexless marriage is that one of the partners have been rejected one too many times when trying to make a romantic gesture. They may have been turned down because their partner is tired, they have demanding family duties, struggling with the work/ life balance, or simply a loss of attraction.
Reviving a Sexless Marriage
Depending on why you and your partner are no longer knocking boots will determine how you go about fixing the situation. If the reason for your lack of sex is down to scheduling issues, such as family duties getting in the way or a busy work schedule, you should make time for each. You have to accept that they’ll always be something going on, so if you want to enjoy sex again, you’re going to have to make it a priority. If the issues are medical, well, we don’t have to tell you that the best thing you ought to do is seek professional advice; this goes for both mental and physical reasons.
If your lack of a sex life is because your partner no longer has any sexual desire for you, well, it’s up to you to turn on the charm. Pick up a new hobby, find a new purpose for being, start working out, spend time with and meet new friends. There’s no better/easier way to get some to appreciate your time and attention like showing them you have options.
