Well, that didn’t last long. If you’ll remember DH and I negotiated that certain times would be blocked out for study for me and that by mutual agreement I would be unavailable for sex during those times. Well, I’m on fall break from school for the next two days, and normally during DH’s lunch hour I’m in class. Today he comes in for lunch, and I’m studying for the biology exam I have next week (one of three). He asks if we can “go to the bedroom” (this is almost always how he asks if we aren’t already in bed), and I ask him “I’d really like to but I’m studying, can we do this after dinner?”
He insisted stating that this time isn’t one of those specifically blocked out for study. And while that is technically true, it is also true that if it weren’t for fall break I wouldn’t be available anyway. So, I complied. I just feel like he is always going to put his momentary desires just a little bit above my needs. It’s frustrating, and I’m just about to tell him that we’re back to strictly “sex on demand” because that’s the only thing that keeps him satisfied.
At this point I’m generally happy with my life and my marriage, and in this one area I’m personally shooting for contentment not happiness.
