We wish everyone could have a consistent and fulfilling sex life, especially when married. A lot of people do, but unfortunately, some people might lose their way.
One FitPerezcious reader is experiencing this problem, so he's asked our Dr. Karen Stewart about what he should do.
Here's the question:
So my wife…
The issue is that she has stopped wanting to spend time with me and she never wants to have sex! I have tried being good and not wanting it in the hope she gives it to me ! And nothing!
Here's Karen's response:
I am sorry to hear that you are having a hard time with your wife. Ask yourself this: has anything changed in your relationship that would make her withdrawal from you? Are you putting effort into your relationship-asking her about her day, complimenting her, planning dates. etc? I would recommend that you ask her flat out what she is feeling, why she has pulled back from you and how you can rectify this situation. Be open to hearing criticism and allow her to express herself by trying to not become defensive if she says things you may not agree with! If talking to her does not seem to work, you may want to consider attending couples counseling.
So unfortunately, it doesn't sound like there's a magical "cure-all" but we agree that asking your wife is the best move at this point!
Good luck, and thanks Dr. Karen!
