Disturbed by husband's disinterest in intimacy, weight loss, excessive crying

My husband is not interested in intimacy. I am disturbed, have lost weight, and cry most nights.

One enters into marriage with dreams of hoping to start a new journey with their partner that is filled with love and happiness. For a happy and successful marriage, both partners need to be equally invested to work towards it. With the basic love and communication not in place for a strong foundation, anything that is built upon it will turn out to be shaky, especially at an engagement phase. This is certainly not why someone enters into a marriage. I can imagine your pain and agony. Sexual need is as strong a need as thirst or hunger. We are sexual beings and it is only natural that...

Newly-wed spouse pressuring me for sex

I am being blamed for wanting to take my time before I have sex with my husband. We have been married for two weeks.

Taking your time to get comfortable before getting physically close and intimate is your right. It is unfair of your husband to blame you for that and to force you beyond what you are ready for. You have only begun your married life and have a long journey ahead of you. I can imagine how uncomfortable this must be for you. When things are calm, talk about the relationship. You can start the conversation by saying “You’re important to me and I want you in my life. There are some things in this relationship that are deal-breakers for me. My hope is that we can work them out and the only...

How to deal with inadequacy and rejection of sex life in marriage?

Is a sex less marriage sustainable? Been married for 24 years and there is no sex in the last 15 years. How do I deal with feelings of inadequacy and rejection? Have put in a great deal of efforts but to no avail. Please tell me what to do?

Dear User6340, To give you a generic answer, marriage is not only about sex but without sex, a marriage becomes dysfunctional. Since marriage is 2 people coming together for a common purpose, if both partners are of the same opinion on abstinence, companionship can substitute for physicality. But if, one or the other, is coerced into the agreement, then it will lead to dysfunctionality. That aside, in order to help you, I will need to know more about your specific circumstances. Please tell me more about the past 24 years of your marriage. Warm regards. Arunita Biswas

Husband unable to get erection, feels guilty and frustrated

I have an emotionally close relationship with my husband. However, he is unable to make love to me as he does not get an erection. Should I see a urologist?

Hello, Thank you for replying back and also giving more details, especially regarding the love and the closeness that you both share. I can imagine his frustration, because of not being able to have a sex life. He seems to have come to terms with his needs. The laughter is just a defence mechanism to cover his own feelings of helplessness.. My dear, it is time to see a sexologist. Do not delay.

My age is 52 male my wife never like to even kiss her, last 9 years we have not been in sex she never want to go for it I have one 9 year son. I feel very bad some time I feel to attempt for sucide please help me

Hi,This is common occurrence with many men and women as well, we can understand frustration that you might be having at this point.

How to overcome low libido due to psychological issues?

Hi Monu, I understand your concern. having a healthy libido is important for maintaining a healthy mind and body balance and five years is a long time. I also understand that medication has not been very helpful as your problem is more psychological. It would be advisable to seek out specialists (sex therapists ) who can help you get to the root of the problem and give you the right guidance. It would involve discussing a lot about your history both emotional and physical as well as any current stressors that may have been responsible for the decrease in your libido. This would be possible...
