  • If he's in Iraq, of course there's something wrong. He's deployed to a war zone. He is probably mentally and physically exhausted. I'd mention it, but don't be too hard pressed about it. Wait til deployment is over and get serious about handling any lingering issues.

  • hmm idk, normally after deployments they want to do it everyday. maybe he is tired. i was active duty and somedays you work so hard and so long that you dont want to do anything but go to sleep. my dh is coming home from iraq in a couple days and we cant wait to get a hold of each other.. maybe he is scared about having sex.. if youre on baby #5 maybe he thinks everytime he touch you, you get pregnant. lol. idk mama ask him whats the deal.

  • Sorry but if you have four kids and another on the way he's ok with having sex!
