Differences in sex drives cause problems in the best of marriages. Picture: iStock Source:istock. Welcome to Relationship Rehab, news.
I feel a need to address both women and men on this matter, because it DOES matter. Both feel very strongly about this part of their marriage. But it also addresses what it is like for the man to be refused.
Sexual desire is leaving the American bedroom faster than a Kansas tornado will rip apart a house. Long-term relationships, far too oftenexperience a dwindling sex life. Their keen focus on raising the little ones while ignoring the man next to them.

The day when I could finally know my husband on a sexual level. But now the honeymoon is over and real life has begun. Oh how I longed to be with him!
Life happens, which means dry spells happen, am I right? No biggie—unless that dry spell morphs into more of a, well, severe drought. Can't remember the last time you wanted to have sex with your husband or partner?
The spreadsheet chronicled the previous six weeks of their relationship, how many times he attempted to initiate having sex, and all of the reasons why she declined. Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, Husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone. On the flip side, this is a very private issue that she chose to make public to the entire world, so neither party made the optimal choice in how to handle this.
They feel they are losing their husbands or they are worried because their husband is often angry and irritable. Sometimes they are in my office because the husband had an affair, or because he said he wanted a divorce.

It's no secret that after the honeymoon phase of a relationship slows down, the sex also slows down. When that happens, it can be really confusing or scary because you may not know why your partner seems uninterested in sex, or worse, what it means for the future of the relationship. Is it a temporary blip?
