Hi, everyone, I'm new to this board, just signed up because I needed somewhere private where I could go to get this off my chest, and maybe get some advice and support. I am feeling really bad right now and have no one that I can turn to because this is so private. This is a lengthy post, I apologize.
First, a little background: My husband and I have been married for almost 20 years, and we have two children in middle school. Our marriage has been very unhappy and contentious, lots of power struggles, anger, lack of respect for each other. We have never enjoyed a good sex life and he is very angry at me because of this. I have avoided sex with him because it has always been very unsatisfying and I have resented his lack of interest or kindness towards me except for when he's wanted sex. There has been some physcal violence in the marriage throughout the years; we both have been the initiators of it
