Just stress or something else? adult content

DH and Ihave been married 6 years. Very active sex life until now.
He is older, 38 so maybe it's age? We also have a lot going on. We had to move in with a friend of his because of financial issues.
I am feeling neglected. He doesn't kiss me, touch me and we are having sex maybe once every week, if that!
Could it all be from stress? Or more?

  • Have you tried talking to him? Sounds like stress. Plus I wouldn't want to get it on with my man with is friend in the next bedroom. To weird.

  • It's probably just stress, I would not worry about it. I would approach hubby and tell him how you feel...

  • My money is on stress and the fact that his friend is right there, too. Just talk to him, like all the other ladies said.

  • Once a week is fine!!! And 38 is still YOUNG! You do know that stress and fatigue can lower the sex drive. And if he thinks you are unhappy and if you put pressure on him,that will eliminate his sex drive altogether.
    If he is a good man and he is faithful, then I wouldn't complain about sex once a week. Many couples have it less than that even. There IS more to life than sex.

  • Oh yeah---a friend in the next room would put a damper on anyone's sex life. I mean....most people need privacy! I coud NOT have sex if I knew someone was going to hear it. That's exhibitionsm to allow someone else into your private sex life...if only by just hearing it. Yikes!
