Well, not celibacy as in "for all time" nor do I mean that it's forced. I was reading the description of this subforum and was drawn in. I try working on my wife and I's relationship. I've been stumbling around in the dark as to what to do about my wife's lack of drive. I take it personally sometimes but other times I know she's under stress. And every time I bring this up in a forum, they always say the same thing; "you need to work on your communication in order to be intimate" I've been trying. Oh, how I've been trying. I have very strong sexual urges. She's hardly ever masturbated. I bring this up in therapy a lot and whenever I try to put into practice what my therapist suggests, my wife will always shoot it down and tell me how much she doesn't like my therapist. Again, it's not like I'm starved for affection and intimacy but it's meager portions verw few and far between.
