Is there anyone here who thinks that lack of sex is a good enough reason, by itself, to leave someone?

You know, when there is a lot of love, intimacy and respect in the relationship, a young child in the house, and not enough money to support two households, anyway?

No, I thought not. Me neither.

Guess I'm staying, then.

That is a decision you have to work out for yourself. But reading your thought process is always interesting. And I wish you good luck with the struggle to decide.

Hi Emily, in these days of Political correctness, no one is likely to venture a strong opinion to you.

They are probably wise to avoid advising, since all we have to go by is this blog. We mostly dont KNOW you, and can only offer sympathy and hope and prayers.

But in general, to be truly loved and respected and apprciated bya spouse is soooo rare. Please when you decide, dont overlook the preciousness of wwhat you have.

i am new here, but is masterbation no help at all for your frustrations?

will he not learn to hold and caress and pleasure you while you pleasure you??

No matter what you decide, May you find peace, satsifaction, and comfort from knowing you sought what you need nobly.

"Guess I'm staying, then."

I would say, all things considered, that you are making a wise choice, hard though it may be, what with the temptations that exist all around out there in the real world. Been there, done that.

Looks like our thought trails are intertwined! Interesting.

No advice here. You know I'm too confused on this issue to offer any.

No advice, but plenty of empathy.

Hi Emily,
It all boils down to whether you think the lack of sex situation will never change or else your needs will never change.
If you think there is hope, then based on what you say about the rest of the relationship, I think that staying may not be too bad.
With hope...(and continued communication) well who knows what may happen in the future.
Chin up :-)

Thank you, all.

Rosie -thanks for your good wishes.

OldBear - your comment has sparked us off in a new direction.

Rob - It feels like the right decision to me. Not an easy decision, though.

Freebird and Trueself - Yes, I'm noticing (and enjoying) a certain intertwining of our thoughts and experiences.

Brownbear - I would not say I have a lot of hope of change. But I do have some. Possibly not based on anything except a certain refusal to admit defeat :-)
