Dating timetable intimacy
This is not the relationship that I was “promised” when I bought the idea that we would be lifelong partners. I get where I am very angry with him and don’t want to even be near him. tweet I live in a sexless marriage where my husband thinks it’s ok to brush over this because he loves me and we’re otherwise happy. I don’t want to leave him because I love my kids, I have nowhere to go, I gave up my career for his etc.
