Listen. This post references *whispers* sex. If you are going to blush and giggle hit the red X and we’ll see you tomorrow.
I recently read an article somewhere about sexless marriages. Call me green but I really didn’t want to believe people did this. Oh, but they do. The numbers were astounding.
So here’s my question. What’s the point?
I understand there are a number of issues beyond one’s control that might contribute to a lack of intimacy between two people but outside of those reasons…*scratches head*
Women are the masters of intimidation and manipulation and I’m sure more than half of the population have used said action or lack thereof as a reward and punishment system. Wrong.
I subscribe to the theory that what you won’t do…..
Not saying that all men cheat because their wives are nagging, raggedy messes, but I am saying those trying to dangle their special parts like a carrot might be doing themselves more harm than good.
The article went on to explain that the majority of the couples who were in these “arrangements” stayed for their children or money reasons. After interviewing some of the children of these couples overwhelmingly the children were aware of the marital problems despite their parents attempt at hiding it. TRAGIC.
If I can’t be intimate with you, and we’ve tried on more than one occasion and its not working, I’m sorry it’s time to move on. Torturing children thinking you are giving them a good example when they are reading right through the foolishness has dire consequences..in my opinion.
This really floored me.
Would you or could you be in a sexless marriage. If so, please explain?
