My husband and i have been married for 6 years. We really don't fight over anything except sex. Before we got married and had two kids i had a normal sex drive but ever since we got married and had kids my libido has taken a nose dive. I am not interested in the same things that i was in the bedroom either. I don't know what to do because i worry that these fights are gonna causee my marriage to eventually fail and i don't want that at all. He's decided he's not even gonna try to initiate anymore and i don't know if that will work. I'm just exhausted when i get into bed at night. I have two children, a house to take care of, and a full time job by the time i go to bed i am ready for sleep not sex but he doesn't see it that way. He gets so upset and i realize i am hurting him but i just don't know what to do. I need advice.Answer Question

Marriage counseling. If discussion turns into fighting and becomes pointless then I would recommend a neutral third party to help you start to communicate effectively again. This isn't that abnormal to have problems when you have young kids. All of the attention goes to them and you are left with nothing or very little to give your partner. You need to start treating your marriage like it is one of your children and nurture it. If you don't want to do therapy, then maybe some self help books. The Five Love Languages is a good place to start so that you can both acknowledge what each of you feel is lacking and what you need from your partner.
