Our expert says:
BY the sound of your message you are quite frustrated with you current situation. You are in quite a young marriage and it is alarming that the mutual sexual interest is not there. It is common for partners to have differences in their preferences and to respect that, but it is crucial to find ways to accommodate one another in the relationship. Sexual apathy/lack of interest is often just a symptom of other aspects that are also not healthy/constructive and they need to be addressed to alleviate the symptom. I will strongly suggest that you seek the professional assistance of a psychologist/counselor that specifically works in the field of sexual concerns to provide you with the space to explore the underlying difficulties. Furthermore it is would be in your and the unborn children’s best interest to address these underlying issues before you bring children into this relationship. Children bring with them more and different challenges that a relationship will have to deal with.
