I wanted my DH in therapy for years due to similar problems.. I told him a few times, but then I just let it go. Would listen when he complained and said things like "It really shouldn't be this hard. I'm sorry it is like this for you" and one day he was like "I want it to be better, too! What can I do?"... Long story short, be supportive if you can and hopefully he will realize on his own that he wants better. [ Reply | More ]

I did not WANT sex for about 2 years after each baby, but I did it anyway. It was important to keep us close, and I found the more I initiated it myself the more I wanted to. It's hard to fight that biological urge to shut down sexually, but it was really important for us that I fought it. I'm not advocating being raped, just making it a big priority to make it happen. A long hot bath, pedicure, some red wine... and home dates can be fun. [ Reply | More ]

I had to go to one. It was a pain in the ass to get to, and it really wasn't a "destination wedding" because everyone was spread out at a number of different hotels/inns, and there were no organized activities beyond the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. They lived in a major city that would have been so much more convenient, even for travelers but, instead, they made it as inconvenient as possible. Everyone spent a fortune to get there, and then the wedding itself was this low key event. I would not do it again. Whoever wrote that you won't be missed is right. [ Reply | More ]
