We received an overwhelming number of comments about last week’s provocative question, Can a Sexless Marriage Work? All of the comments were thoughtful, some even heart-breaking.
As a follow up to the discussion, what do you think about situations in which one partner is unable to perform sexually due to a health issue?
Our reader, Sad and Lonely shares more on her experience:
“I am married to a wonderful man who adores me every minute of every day. He also is disabled which I knew when I married him. I thought I could live with our sex life but I was sorely wrong. I woke up one day after about 7 years and thought, I can’t do this anymore. I used to think I would NEVER consider having an affair but here I am doing that very thing and looking forward to it everyday. It is the one thing that keeps me going in my marriage. Everyday I think about leaving but feel guilty about leaving someone that needs me. Wrong or not, everyone deserves to be happy (including my husband) and I will have to make a decision based on that. No relationship is guaranteed to last forever and people do change and grow apart. It is hurtful but you have to accept it and move on.”
Readers, how do you feel about this? Psychics, any words of advice?
