How do I jumpstart my marriage?
We've been married less than a year and I've basically become nothing more than a teddy bear for my wife.
We don't have sex. We don't go out. We don't do anything but watch TV. Despite my attempts to get us to do ANYTHING else.
I'm constantly angry and unhappy and she doesn't seem to care or realize why.
What the fuck do I do to fix this?
At that point, the night is ruined. I just don't bother any more. It's the same with sex.
>Try to come on to her
>Pushed away repeatedly
>Explicitly state that I'm interested in sex, in case she's not getting it
>"Well now I'm put on the spot and definitely don't want to have sex"
>What the fuck do I do to fix this?
File for divorce. That doesn't sound like someone you want to spend your life married to. The longer you put it off, the harder it will be to move on with your life.
I rarely think marriage counseling works, but in your case I recommend it.
>But your marriage is probably doomed. It's not your fault.
One possibility as to why; attraction is affected by many factors, and a big one is hormonal environment. Sometimes women go off birth control pills only to find that they are no longer attracted to the man they married.
Take dance lessons for three months get fucking awesome at it buy her a black dress that's just the right amount of revealing take her dancing get her drunk take her home have sex in her general direction do something kinky but let her know first like I've always wanted to try....make breakfast purchase grand marinier use it instead of vanilla extract when you make French toast use powdered sugar not syrup fry French toast with Irish butter let her wake up in bed to the smell of coffee and orange French toast say you haven't been yourself lately and you just wanted to say how nice it was last night just being with her plan a trip go on trip make more time for her buy her her favorite flowers three random days a month try not to be a count...that should work...
I hate to be that guy but it's a possibility. Have you suspected your wife of cheating? When women are having affairs, they tend to not want to have intimacy with their husbands.
I am not saying that this is happening, it's just a thought.
