Hi Guys, I'm new to the msg board and am having some issues in my marriage.
I'll try to give a quick background of myself. I'm 28 my husband is 33. We've been married for 6 years and have 5 year old twins. I'm a stay at home mom while my husband works. That's the general stuff...now my problem. :(
I have come to realize our libidos are very mismatched and I'm slowly losing my mind. I don't believe intimacy or sex is the most important thing in a relationship, but I do think it ranks fairly high. We have sex or intimate moments once every 6 to 8 weeks. For him he doesn't seem to care but it's killing me. I don't need to be intimate everyday or even a couple times a week. But once a week would be nice. I feel like I'm always bringing this up and he makes me feel like I'm some kind of freak or something....like I want it all the time. I've tried talking to him about it and he said it's all in my head and that there's no problem. I've been dealing with this for years and now I feel like I'm ready to move on. And every time I feel like packing up and leaving I think to myself I'm being childish and ignorant because aside from this he's a good man. Should I really be complaining about him spending time with me? After all he is a great father and a great provider. So am I just being selfish?
I truly don't want to walk away but I want to feel like I have passion in my relationship. With my husband I feel like we are just really good friends and that's it. If there were other things I couldn't get him to do like having similar interests that would be fine because I could do that with someone else, but this is sacred I can't just go sleep with some other guy. I'm so confused, frustrated and feel soooo alone. It's starting to make me feel depressed and unhappy with my relationship.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I could really use some help!
