My husband is affected by hypoactive sexual desire disorder. We have been married for over 6 years. 90% of the time we are very very happy, and the remaining 10% we are absolutely dissatisfied and miserable. The reason? Sex.
He is 46y.o., I am 38. He is 5,7 - 160#, I am 5,6 - 150#. We love each other and, in despite of it all, we have been mutually faithful. He has done everything he can to show me his love, and I have learned a) to appreciate his efforts, and b) that sex is very important yet not the most important thing in a marriage. Still all his admirable qualities, and traits do not make up for his low libido, marriage cannot be deemed such without sex and I am finding myself more and more resentful of his indifference.
What would you do? Have you had to deal with this? How did you solve it? And if you did not, how did you survive the pain of breaking apart? and when did you know it was either divorce or insanity?

Wow... I would trade in a heartbeat! Sex is SO over rated... I would rather do almost anything
