Good Evening World!!!
Tonight I read an article on sex starved marriages and saw some interesting points made in this article. One point made was the person with the lower sex drive usually holds the power of sex frequency. This is obviously true because if your mate is not willing to play than your stuck twiddling your thumbs. Another point is this is an unworkable and unfair arrangement (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michele-weinerdavis/the-unspoken-truth-about-_1_b_5276291.html). Hmm well if one is in the mood and the other one is not than someone is getting the short end of the stick.
I read an additional article and it says if you are having sex less than 10 times a year than your marriage is considered sexless. The good news is this is doable if both parties are okay with it, but detrimental to the marriage if one is not. This intimacy builds closeness physically, spiritually, emotionally, and it is pleasurable. The fact is you might want to put out for your spouse, so they feel worth something to you and do not feel like a simple buddy or roommate.

My thoughts on the whole thing and some may agree or disagree! I think if you are depriving your mate of sex in your marriage you are opening the door for more issues, infidelity, arguments, and divorce or other major problems. This is a serious issue in 1 of 3 marriages according to the statistics. You may want to talk about it and run to a therapist if you cannot resolve this between the two. Apparently those who hold out are not winning the war in these articles I am reading. Do not scold me for this but I cannot blame someone trying to tiptoe out the back door when their mate is holding out. I mean I personally know I did not get married to have a strictly platonic relationship! Why? That would make no sense to me! So Just something to think about as you lay in bed at night 🙂
