menopause has split alot of marriages up..so listen to us and work with us..we dont want to be this way but we have no control over it its what our bodies are going thru..men go thru it too only in a different way..
Now since you mention about men..I wonder how they feel if we gave up on them cause they can't perform.Now I heard a woman left her husband cause of this.But there is more to life than sex.Yes it's nice to have but if you love someone you can still show affection without the sex.It's nice to hold and kiss each other.Your love for one another will get you through anything...if you talk with one another..

My wife is going through menopause.
She despairs, and is mean to everyone but holds me in the utmost contempt.
We haven't made love in almost 3 years, she does not tell me she loves me anymore and regrets our 30 years of marriage. She is fairly nice to me maybe 25% of the time. She is like a different person.
My question, is this what I can expect for the rest of my life if I stay with her?
I don't want to throw away my 30 year marriage but I am losing hope, I have to be if I am posting this on Topix.
Advice, condolences, or snippets of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
You don't deserve to suffer or be denied for the sake of menopause. Just the same, you're wife is not exactly feeling great either. She's going through a lot of physiological and psychological issues right now. Did you suggest to her that she should consult a doctor, Gyno and/or counseling? It could help. Also, what ever happened to "for better or for worse"? I know it's not easy, but if you truly love your wife, you'll try to resolve some of these issues together. It make take some effort, but it's worth it if you want your marriage to stay together.
