I would never leave. Its fo rbetter ot for wrose and in sickness or in health.

That would be awful if someone leave because of this. What if one get really sick and cant do it anymore?

Have you tried intimacy without the sex? Simple acts of intimacy can be more fufulling then the actual act. 
Holding hands, cuddling, small touches and carasses, massages without expecting sex 

Quoting Anonymous:

We have had sex maybe 10 times or so in the past two years.

If it doesn't change, I will leave.

I've tried everything, seduction, communication and he says he still wants me but gives me all these excuses. I know he's not cheating.

I just I have to have that intimacy. Once a week I'd be happy.

I would forever stay.

I love my husband, I didn't marry him for sex. We don't need sex to be close and loving and intimate.

Thank God he feels the same bc I've been going through medical issues so he hasn't been getting sex much. I feel awful and he tells me not to worry, he loves me and only needs to feel close to me and sex isn't needed for that:)

I could stay forever.

Besides, you guys can't do other things? What about making out, oral, toys, things that don't require his "performance" to make intimacy happen? Sometimes if you take the pressure of performance away, thing happen.

Depends on the situation, because of an illness, I'll deal with it. Because of excuses, no.

If it was just sex then I'd stay.
But if the lack of sex was a symptom of other intimacy issues, and I knew I had no love or support emotional or intimately I'd probably leave. It would take a long while, because I'm forgiving and always think things will change, but eventually I'd just leave.

You don't need sex to be intimate.


Quoting Anonymous:

Yes, but you still have intimacy. What if that was gone?




Quoting Anonymous:

I would stay. Like others ssaid sex isn't everything. SO and I don;t have the best sex life, but it's not sex less. I seemed to loose my drive after our miscarriage. Glad he's standing by me.
