But early marriage was seen as a strategic alliance between families, with the youngsters often having no say in the matter.In some cultures, parents even married one child to the spirit of a deceased child in order to strengthen familial bonds." As we find ourselves fast-forwarding to a modern age of marriage, more men and women are now free to marry for love and mutually compatible companionship.
So the only solution I have been able to come up with is having a secret affair with either a married woman in a similar situation or a single woman who is open-minded and mature enough to be "the other woman".
Does anyone on here know where I should look to find a woman who would be open to dating a married man like myself?
Over the course of our marriage, I've seen her interest in sex decline gradually to the point where she doesn't even have an interest anymore.
I treat her very well, provide most of the financial responsibility of our household, and make sure that I continue to take her out on dates, buy small gifts for her, bring her flowers, etc.
"That is, an affair can provide feelings of affirmation and restore vitality, and can activate courage to leave the marriage when doing so is the healthiest path." There you have it, married women have very real needs that must be talked about and addressed for the sake of society's well-being.
No more taboos, no more misogamy, no more judgments - just a real conversation.
I also make sure that I share equally with the household chores and cleaning.
I am still very much physically attracted to my wife and I tell her that I think she's beautiful and sexy quite frequently.
My wife still tells me she finds me physically attractive and I exercise regularly to keep fit and stay attractive to her so I know that my appearance isn't the issue.
We've had many discussions about this subject and my wife knows how frustrated I have become but she tells me she just no longer has the interest in sex that she once had.
Seems like a rather interesting topic to explore in a day and age where social media and technology is allowing couples to communicate more often than not. They usually express no hope that their husbands will ever understand what it is that frustrates them, let alone change enough to solve the problem.
