After being happily married for 10 years I still have a s*x drive but my wife doesn’t and I can’t resign myself to a celibate life
My wife and I have been happily married for 10 years but our s*x life is a relic of the past. My s*x drive is higher than hers, and this means I am living with an unmet need, which affects how I behave, particularly around other women. I know I should discuss this with her but if I tell her I am tempted to have an affair because I’m not getting s*x at home, this feels like blackmail. On the other hand, I am not prepared to resign myself to a sexless marriage. Is it time to separate?
