We talk about the engagement times, and the wedding plannings, and the party throwings, and the identity questionings over here on Offbeat Bride. But over on our sister site Offbeat Home & Life, we talk about all the post-wedding stuff — marriage, sex, communication, breakups, etc.

This week, we have a post up about an issue that may come up at some point in your married life (due to life being, well, life): living in a sexless marriage.

We're barely in our thirties, but H and I are currently in a “sexless marriage” (defined as a couple who have sex “10 times a year or less”). I am writing this because I want other partners in similar situations to know that they aren't alone…

In the first two years of our relationship, we had amazing, beautiful sex. I didn't expect that giddy passion to last forever, but I was totally unprepared for the sex to stop almost completely, as it has in the last several years. At first, being rejected by my partner confused me. I spent a lot of time worrying: What is wrong with me? Does he still love me? Does he still find me attractive? Is there someone else?
