Have you tried flirting with your spouse, its a good place to start.
Talk and communicate with your partner…. There are so many possibilities
Being married to a narcissist…well in my case at least. If your a reader grab a copy of Insecure in Love, it goes of some pretty serious blocks to emotional intimacy. I’m be struggled with this subject my whole life and this book really helped.
Picking FB over hanging with spouse and seeing where it goes -
Taking the chemo pill. We just got a new septic system and it says that anyone taking chemo or chemo pills should not urinate in the toilet. The pills cause eat up the microorganisms. Not even having this poison in my body.
Asking fb instead of your partner whose your married to:woozy_face:
Meds can change everything
Time. Monotony…same shit every single day. Routine is good but habits generally aren’t. Change things up again, flirt, go out on dates…get to know each other again. What you liked 5 yrs ago might be something that completely turns you off now…same goes for him, and I don’t mean just in the bedroom. Relationships need to be fed and watered or they die
Right now we i have a number of reasons against us.
Kids…arguing…growing apart…cheating…no communication

Why are y’all kids getting married before thinking these things through? Kids marrying kids
Our constant arguing. Who wants to be intimate with someone who’s not nice

Illness, anxiety, stress, a lot of fights , tiredness, finances, lack of confidence… to name a few
-Comfortability (thinking you can do, say and act however you please because they’ll never leave you)
Depression ,over tired. Routine habits of just daily life. Does not mean there is no love however you should make it special and try
Medication such as birth control and antidepressants
Not focusing my attention on my husband and his needs. When you make someone feel appreciated, they will reciprocate those feelings. When you invest your time and emotions into someone, (as long as they reciprocate those feelings) everything seems to fall into place.
Depending on age it could be a lot of different things.
Cheating, illness, medication, depression, stress, exhaustion, etc
We just lost a baby before that he is always on social media so idk we shall see
Not making an effort to create intimacy, if you want it you need to make it happen.
You have gotten comfortable talk to your spouse.
