Lisa struggled with a sexless marriage for over twenty years.
In her mid-forties she couldn’t stand it any longer and chose to end the marriage.
I just thought “okay, whatever” went to nursing school, had two more kids, raised my kids, I guess I had three by then, and everything was just whatever.
Then when you hit your early forties and your kids are kind of grown and gone, I just started thinking,“I don’t want this.
It was bad, but in every other way he was perfect, so it was really confusing to me.
I generally try to avoid discussions about what are and are not “legitimate” reasons for divorce because only the spouses truly know what a marriage is like and even then they can have vastly different opinions.
We did not have sex before we were married, because we were good little Christian kids and that’s bad and blah blah blah. ”I remember being on my knees, begging him, saying.“This is abusive. You’re supposed to honor and cherish your wife, that’s what you promised.
