That’s a good principle to live by, wouldn’t you agree?
But what if you’re dealing with a serious situation like a sexless marriage? Does that principle still apply?
Actually, yes it does! Even if you’re in a sexless marriage you can find ways to become happier.
How do you accomplish that? Well, let’s begin at the beginning…
Why Marital Sex is Important
Sex is part of the glue that holds a marriage together.
When you are just getting to know your mate, good sex brings you close emotionally and physically.
As the years go by, sex is as much an expression of affection as it is of need. It is something that we all expect to be part of a marriage. A marriage doesn’t even seem like a marriage without it!
If there is no intimacy in a marriage, one or both partners could be feeling the strain of emotional estrangement.
Understandably, it takes a lot to be happy in a sexless marriage…
But it can be done!
Here are some tips to help you remain happy despite a sexless union:
First, be honest with each other in exploring the reasons for the lack of sex.
Is it that you’ve suddenly lost interest in sex altogether or just in sex with your partner?
If it’s the latter, you might find it difficult to be honest with your mate…
But, you need to let them in on the painful secret. It will make things better in the long-run.
Tip #2 Avoid Blame
So, if you want to stay happy in a sexless marriage, you must learn to get past the bitterness.
You need to stop blaming each other or yourself. What good does it do, anyway?
Does it really matter if the blame is yours or your spouse’s? It does not change reality.
It certainly doesn’t make it better.
Tip #3 Create Intimacy
Kiss, snuggle and hold each other. Express your need for each other in a way that satisfies you emotionally.
Even if your marriage has become sexless, there is no need to act as if you are asexual.
Instead, go on frequent dates with your mate. Do all the fun things you used to do together.
Try to touch each other often and slowly build up the physical intimacy again.
A purely celibate relationship is a great strain on your psyche and you’ll need to reach deep within yourself to find the strength and courage to walk the delicate line.
But if you’re unwilling to walk away from the whole (hopefully) wonderful history you share with that special someone, then it’s worth it.
A sexless marriage does NOT have to remain that way!
