Even bigger than the sex is the lack of intimacy demonstrated in their relationship….we must remember sex and intimacy are two different things (although many times for men sex=intimacy. what does one do in a sensitive space such as this. You want to be thee for your spouse and support them in everything they are going through. At the same time it is just as critical that your needs aren’t left suffering and unmet.

    I have learned that when couples stop being intimate for a long period of time. Pride blocks their view of each other and no one wants to step up and seriously change their situation. there may be one or two attempts to? correct things, but if one doesn't get the desired reaction, they avoid trying again then time increases, feelings change, and the sore gets bigger.
