It's the same o same o, he's always got a f attitude. Who wants to have sex with an asshole. Is it because he is a crossdresser, men's balls shrink in the winter time and they become bitches or what? I know i met someone here 3 years ago, would love to have spent my life with someone like you. You can stay in love with someone, fall in love over and over again. Only if you have it in your heart. And don't forget to care about yourself. You can't expect someone to love you if you don't love yourself.

The reality of a lot of sad and bad marriages are coming out.

Many people are trapped in marriages due to finances/money, kids, fear of being lonely, etc...

Arguably, divorce should be a lot easier.

Another argument is that open-marriages, polyamory, or swapping should be advocated more.

In this way at least you less people trapped in sexless marriages or suffering.
I can see why many people dont get married anymore)

Here's a twist. My husband says I have the sex drive of a man and he's like the woman that needs to have "everything perfect and just the right mood".
Arguing and makeup sex is something he would never agree to.
So, we have sex about once every two to three years.
Yes, that's the truth.
He's always too tired or has an aching back.
Well, why do you think I'm on the computer now?
wow. I am female and I don't know how you deal with that! Have NEVER had a bf complain that he DIDNT get enough, but have had a couple of bfs complain about getting TOO MUCH! Guess my sex drive is in OVERDRIVE. Always has been.

Wow. Don't know how you do that. Don't think I'd do that for very long. I mean, why bother being married? Just IMHO.

I always wind up with abused, troubled, shattered women in my life who, after the initial courtship, use sex as a reward and punishment scheme, but eventually forget about the reward part. To me sex is as essential as food, air and water, and I could suspend petty feelings over an argument or something if my loved one was 'in the mood', but that was never reciprocated. After a point, too many excuses and no communication, I just don't give a fig, and that usually ends it.I will never understand women. I'll have to try a 'normal' one sometime, but they seem to elude me.The others are glomming onto me left and right.
I feel the same way about men.

Well I have not had sex with my wife for over seven years. My wife said her mum and dad stopped in their 40 and we are in our 50's my wife is 52 and I am 57. But her mum had a stroke and her dad had a heart attack. I would love a sex life but she says that is not going to happen she is very over weight but I am still active. I have taken to cuddling other women but would love more with no luck, what do I do.

This problem is bigger than you think. I have met up with other men and they say they don't have sex with their wives because they are very over wieght. Can the NHS sort this problem out
