How to Help a Sexless Marriage

As we become more comfortable in our marriages, and as various straining factors such as children’s needs, job pressures and financial difficulties creep in, the sex life in our marriages can suffer. If you feel like you are in a sexless marriage, have faith that there are things you can do to overcome the problem. Many aspects of your daily life can take over and interfere with any potential intimacy you may have with your spouse. While this is perfectly normal, it is important to recognize the problem and get your relationship back on track.

Children are one of the greatest joys to ever come into our lives, but they also change every aspect of our lives as we knew them. From sleepless nights when they are newborn, to the exhaustion that comes with chasing around a toddler, keeping the spark alive in our marriages can be something that is thrown on the backburner. If you feel like you’re now in a sexless marriage because of your children, try and address that with your spouse so that you can begin to heal that rift. There are plenty of things you can do to bring the sex in your marriage back. Plan a date night to take some time for yourselves to reconnect. Take time to discuss the things that are important to you and your spouse in your relationship. Reminisce with your spouse about those things that made you fall in love in the first place. Remember what it was like romancing your spouse? Wouldn’t you like to get that spark back in your relationship? Do the good stuff that will make it sparkle now.

Other issues that can contribute to a sexless marriage are job stress and financial problems. If your job has you down and you feel like you are just going through the motions in life, it is okay to reach out and ask for help. If you have money problems, it can keep you so stressed that you don’t even think about being romantic.  Try to keep things in perspective.  You might not be able to change how much money you have right away but you can change how much and how you think about it.

If you are having problems working through your marriage intimacy problems, consider outside help. There really is hope for your marriage.

We would like to help you get a new spark in your marriage.
