Sexual intimacy is a vital component of a thriving marriage. When it starts to fade, it can be a clear indicator that your relationship is facing significant challenges. Even if health concerns make it impossible to engage in sexual intercourse, there are still ways to nurture your sexual connection with your spouse. If you find yourself constantly justifying the absence of sex, it may be time to seek therapy for your marriage. Enduring months or even years in a sexless marriage is unnecessary, as underlying complex issues may be at play. By taking the necessary steps to work through these issues, both you and your spouse can experience profound growth.

  1. Recognizing the Importance of Sexual Intimacy:

    Sexual intimacy is what separates marriage from all other relationships. Unfortunately, many couples become brother and sister rather than intimate partners. The decline in sex can serve as a red flag signaling broader relationship issues. There is great value in maintaining a sexual connection, even if certain health conditions prevent traditional intercourse. One of those primary values is to maintain your overall health and attitude. Not having sex further perpetuates that negative spirit in your home.

  2. Seeking Therapy for Your Marriage:

    Acknowledging that justifying the absence of sex is cause for concern will enable couples to consider seeking therapy to save their marriage. No one should endure months or years in a sexless marriage. This is a sure prescription for infidelity on some level. Sex is a complicated topic and often requires professional guidance to address.

  3. Uncovering Complex Marital Issues:

    Take the time to work through the complex issues underlying a sexless marriage. Couples must prioritize open communication, vulnerability, and self-reflection to identify and address the root causes of their marital struggles.
