Dating and married couples
It’s also well known by now that hormonal contraceptives tend to decrease sexual appetite.So by preparing themselves physiologically to have sex at any time, women make it so that they rarely or never want to.To me, it just seems like such a weird problem to have.
But preferring late-night television to my husband sounds a little crazy to me.
This was paired with an explanatory spreadsheet in which he had documented, for several weeks, all the times she had refused his request for sex, complete with her proffered excuse. This in itself is of course wildly inappropriate, but the resulting discussion was actually moderately interesting, as people discussed the scope of “wifely duties” and debated how much effort husbands should be obliged to make to facilitate marital intimacy.
I agree with a fairly widespread consensus that 1) the husband should find better and less combative ways to address the problem, 2) the wife should be paying more attention to her husband and marriage, and 3) online forums are not the place for resolving concerns about your intimate relationships.
Which couple would be happier, closer or more fulfilled?
When marriage was understood more traditionally, as a foundation for family, this created a natural script.
