You’re not alone if you’re in a sexless marriage – Seek help of a marriage counselor

    It is physical intimacy which differentiates a nuptial relationship from just a platonic relationship. There are some couples who adopt this negative habit or pattern of letting their physical life take a backseat. After the first few years of marriage, there is a usual ‘drop off’, especially when kids come into the picture. But if you let it dry up totally, this is often a marital issue which has to be addressed sooner or later.

    A married couple can soon become just roommates when there is no place for sex in their lives. If both the spouses are okay with it, this is nothing of a concern. But this is not always the case. Usually either of the two partners seems to be frustrated and irritated by such a circumstance.
