I've been married to my wife and mother of my children for 7 years. The intimacy and sex has really gone downhill within the last few years. It's at the point now, where I have to in a way force her to have sex. When I say force I mean talk her into it and persuade her into it. And if we do its only once a few weeks. When we first got to get her and married, we were crazy about each other and all over one another. Now there's now in Tammy, no affection and I have to fight for a kiss. She stays home with the kids, when I get home, it's instantly "about time you're home" nothing like hey how was your day.. I feel like I bend over backwards for her with work, coming home to make dinner 90 % of the time, dishes, playing with the kids then getting them to bed. Granted she is with the kids all day and what not which I totally understand and I know is not easy one bit. I don't think I could do that, so I give her huge kuddos for that and any stay at home mom for that matter. I just feel like we are so far off on pages from each other and it's really getting to me. On top of this, I know our kids see mom and dad not kissing, not touching, not holding hands and hugging. I don't want them growing up to be not affectionate towards their partner and I definitely want my daughters to know how a guy should treat a woman, so when they are older they don't date the dirt bags. Any advice and or comments is appreciated.
She could be exhausted, depressed, or is there some kind of other issue between you two?
When is the last time you took her away for a vacation or at least a romantic weekend?
That's really frustrating for someone not to build up good relationship with wife. I even didn't have that problem yet.
1) Maybe she doesn't realize how much you do, and there's animosity there. 2) Potentially she's just stressed. Sounds like you both need a getaway
