Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today?

Kudos for the Video clip! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you considered - Millawdon Varied Nights Trick (should be on google have a look)? It is a good exclusive product for learning intimate questions to make your relationship stronger minus the hard work. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my GF after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.
Reading the comments makes me feel extremely lucky. My wife and I have been together for 16 years, married for 12, and we are still hot for each after all this time. If I had to give one piece of advice, it'd have to be communicate. Communicate, communicate, communicate. We talk... all the time... about what we like, what we don't like. We try new things sometimes. If we feel the other person is becoming disinterested, we talk about how we feel. Not only does it keep any issues from festering and causing larger problems, but we usually find that we're feeling the same way, and this allows us to help each other. I know I can come to her about anything, and she knows she can come to me. I'm not wanting to seem like I'm boasting. Just reading all of the comments from people with problems, I thought I'd share our story in the hopes of helping.
LGB became LGBT
LGBT becam LGBTQ (if you’re even questioning! take a sit over here)
LGBTQ became LGBTQI
Lemme make it easy for you from the year 2035:
It’s now called:
Anyone take a guess...?
I can't look at her speaking - she doesn't know what to do with her hands and so keeps her arms up in this idiotic position and I keep thinking about a doctor just having scrummed up and about to enter the operating theatre.
Couldn’t live like that - I’m 52 and my wife is 57 (still attractive and has a good body) been married for 27 years and are at it like rabbits, she bangs like a barn door in a storm. We can’t get enough of each other- love her to bits and it gets better every time. She’s amazing and my best friend and a great cook too. I couldn’t stay in a sexless marriage - no way!
Good talk, excellent Irish sense of humor. Thank you Maureen.
Now, anyone knows why YouTube translates both the title and description of the video for me to Spanish? Is it in any setting? Is this something the owner of the video can do? In any case .. why spoon feed us with a Spanish title and description, when the talk is in English? (yes, I know about subtitles, no, I don't need to use them .. )
What if it is the other way around? Can anybody help me? I feel so alone sad broken and idk.. I feel so so bad about myself. I don't know if i should continue this relationship or not? Why is it always about men?? We women had so much problem too i have never had any solution to this.. Can someone please help me
I must be in the low percentages. I get it pretty regular and my wife has already gone through menopause and we are in our mid 50s. Sorry for those who dont but I do agree with those saying ask for it and if not responsive one night take your time and be gentle with it. It does happen but if you quit paying attention it does tend to drift. Make it happen has pretty good returns for both of you. Long baths, slow massages, watch a funny movie. Do what it takes, understanding and patience.
I was all ready to rip into this speaker for being the standardized man-basher., but eventually she gets around to it. Each person has multiple roles to play in life, and it's best to understand those roles and compartmentalize them. Just because you got married, doesn't mean you stop being your other's boyfriend or girlfriend. I've seen too many people lose their spouse to parenthood. They become a child's parent, lose sight of all of the other roles, and in time that leads to destruction. You can spot doomed marriages these days. I pity all the men stuck with women who are in permanent mommy-mode. I don't blame them for cheating.
Marriage is a legal, binding CONTRACT, between two individuals. Kinda takes the fie outta the whole thing, if ya ask me. Once you bring the government into the bedroom, you're done, son. This talk is for the LADIES. Bye!
I believe we value it entirely too much... would you feel the same (folks complaining about the lack of, I mean) if a medical condition made it so it wasn't possible. The mental, habitual behavior is what creates the cravings and the issues concerning the matter. The physical part can be handled on your own. Just don't get caught in the trap of thinking about other people while you handle that. I know that's tough, but everything can be done in practice to create new mental habits. Then, love her/him with everything else you have. That's my thoughts anyway. I know people have their own, but there's something to consider from a very happily married man. <<<<< and that statement, is no lie. It isn't buried in religious mumbo jumbo, filled with fantastical stories or without issues. There is a place in your heart where you love someone very deeply, and there is a place deep within where you lust after a lot of things, but there is a place in your soul and in your mind where you study people you love and lust, with empathy. Where you come to know them as humans. Just an equally troubled, equally imperfect human. This is the place where you learn to give a little, or a lot sometimes, and just let some things go. This is also the place where things come back that maybe left the relationship. There is something really attractive about a real partner, and a real best friend. And, When you die, when you're on your death bed. Who do you want near you??? someone you have learned to love without criticism and they have, therefore, learned to love you the same through emulation - or someone you've had a lot of sex with? (just an example, but insert many other superficial things) - Because the truth is, a superficial relationship will not last through a battle with a terminal illness or the unattractiveness of aging.
She also seems to buy into the Billy Joel lyric that "Catholic girls start much too late..." Again, I'm wondering where she went to school. I'm in my 50's. I was Catholic school educated. Sorry Maureen, Catholic girls are faster and they tend to be kinkier, too.
