For years any mention of sexless marriages has been taboo. People didn’t dare to admit it even to their closest friends. It was so important to maintain the image of a happy and fulfilling marriage.
Well, recently this topic has been getting more interest and discussion. People have begun to do something about it instead of letting their life pass them by.
The first barrier is that of shame. You have never felt alone until you’ve lived in a sexless marriage. However, this feeling isn’t based on facts. Far from it.
The current sexless marriage statistics state that about 15-20% of all couples live in a sexless marriage in the United States alone and many more worldwide. This is according to the acceptable definition of a sexless marriage as being 10 times a year or less. You are not alone.
Sexless marriages are caused by many reasons and you need to realize that, unless they’re caused by physical problems, they are always a symptom of some fault in your relationship, nothing else.
Living in a sexless relationship is difficult but what will make it easier is if you take it upon yourself to do what is required to save your marriage. Just by taking action, you will find yourself much more willing to bear the frustration.
Making a difference in your marriage may take some time. If this has been going on for a while you need to be patient and firm in your love for one another. However, if your love is strong and you’re willing to be open about your marriage, then you may indeed find a way to make it better again.
Don’t give up. This is something which you and you alone, control.
