Hi Deb! It sounds like you have your hands full with a very rich life. :)


Quoting djlm70:

My name is Deb and I've been married to my husband, Robert, for 2 1/2 years, but together for 3 1/2. Between us we have 6 kids. He has 3 daughters from a previous marriage ages 8, 7, and 5. I have a 21 year old daughter from a previous relationship, a 13 year old son from a previous marriage, and my husband and I have a 2 year old daughter together. The 8 year old and 5 year old both have Cerebral Palsy. Our household is very chaotic most of the time. I'm a stay at home mom and a Pure Romance Consultant. My husband works two jobs and we both are going to school online. We make time for each other every night after the kids go to bed. Recently we went through a rough patch but we managed to get through it and now we are closer than ever.

Men don't often like to talk about relationship problems, especially sexual ones, for fear of being made to feel inadequate or less manly in some way. When you talk to him again, talk to him outside of the bedroom and tell him how you feel and what you need for him to do. When you're in the bedroom in the moment, guide him verbally or physically to do the things you need to increase your response. You can also talk to your doctor to find out ways to help improve your response, too. Good luck! :)
