A Marriage Without Intimacy - Can You Bring Back Passion?

Posted: 22/09/2008 |Comments: 0 | Views: 6,742 |

A marriage without intimacy is a marriage without real love and becomes more like a brother-sister relationship than that of lovers and life partners. Sadly it is estimated that about 18% of married couples live in what is termed a "sexless marriage" where bedroom activity is counted at less than 10 times per year. While sex cannot be quantified like this as people can be happy with less sex or more depending on their preferences this does show that many millions of people have intimacy problems that impact on having a loving and passionate life.

If you live in a sexless marriage but desperately crave that intimacy that comes with the closeness of intercourse but your partner seems opposed or reluctant to the idea the consequences for your relationship is quite dire as many relationships end because of these problems and those that don't end up miserable and boring or sometimes violent as the frustration, anger, rejection and humiliation can become too much and it spills out hurting yourselves, children and other people around you.
This does not have to be the end of it though as the relationship problems that underpin the lack of intimacy in a marriage can be found, investigated, discussed and eventually overcome even if it feels like you are the only one what wants it. Each couple has a different story and a different solution but the first steps you must take are these:


  • Be patient - Never get angry, never demand anything, never force the issue it only makes matters worse

  • It is not you - Do not think that it your body or personality that your partner dislikes, this is not the case! IT is an emotional problem with them not your appearance

  • Be understanding - Do not make light of things, do not belittle them and do not retaliate if they get angry either. You must be strong enough to weather these relationship problems in a marriage without intimacy or risk making more!

    If you're not sharing intimacy with your partner, the relationship is hanging on by a very thin thread. You need to address it and do it quickly before things reach a point where they can no longer be salvaged.
