Apologies in advance to whomever thinks this is either offensive or ridiculous, but I am curious as to how long a couple can go without having intimate relationships and still have a chance at a meaningful relationship in the future. In my case, it is just three months, my wife and I are in counseling, she saw one man, one time, didn't have sex with him I believe her, since she was the one who told me about the "date" , but has said at counseling that she isn't ready to have a sexual relationship at this point, because that would be giving up her "freedom". I know this may seem silly to some, but I'm trying to gear myself up for some long, hard work at our relationship, but I'm afraid unreturned sexual feelings seem to get in the way of working at some deeper issues. I guess I'm looking for advice from those who have successfully put those feelings on the back burner. Boy am I glad I found this site! Also felt like the freak in our marriage!
My best guess is once a month? Am I worried over nothing? Or should we be making a greater effort to do the deed more? So what are we doing these days instead of having sex? In short: We get used to doing other things and not having sex.

This is a post specifically written for husbands. I can only hope he and his wife got some professional help while they still could. My husband told me about a former friend of his whose marriage was destroyed over this issue.
