10 Reasons Your Husband Doesn't Want to Have Sex
6 Reasons Your Husband Doesn’t Want Sex Anymore—and What to Do
Recently, I received a message from a wife who was desperately looking for some advice. She shared with me that her husband is a kind, loving, and wonderful man in every way EXCEPT he rarely, if ever, wants to have sex with her. In fact, they have gone months at a time without making love, and the absence of intimacy and connection in their marriage is breaking her heart and making her resent her husband. I could feel her frustration and pain as I read her heartfelt message. In the end, she asked me if I had any advice on what she could do to address this issue with her husband and make sexual intimacy an active part of their marriage once again.

Women who find themselves in a sexless marriage have many of the same frustrations as men.
