I can identify with this although I'm not married. I date from time to time but always end up getting the "you're a great guy I just don't feel a spark" speech. I go the escort route from time to time, maybe once a year or so... and that's it, that's my sex/love life.

It is legal where I am, I don't because I love my wife and the lack of the purely physical sensation is a very small part of what I'm missing. If you've never slept with someone who you love and shared the connection that creates, you have my sympathy.

hmm

I did the celibacy thing (no marriage, no sex) for a while... idk maybe a decade ago. it was close to a year.

I gained a lot of focus. I also gained a lot of anger that didn't dissipate.
Had to learn new coping skills. Sex is a very easy way to walk away from other things.

I have to admit than when I abstain from masturbation, coupled with my celibacy, I find my focus and imagination improves greatly in the various creative outlets I enjoy.

This. So much this...

I don't comment much on these boards, but I just had to do my two cents on this one.

My biological father left when I was very young and I grew up with a single mother who struggled to make it. In my mid-teens she remarried - a marriage that lasted until my mid-twenties when she got divorced again.

So I've seen both sides of the coin and while I certainly agree that it sucks to grow up in a "broken" household, it sucks much more to see the love your parents used to share die.

I knew the second divorce was coming long before it happened. And it was the primary reason why I hardly visited my parents during the last year of their marriage. The house had turned "cold", metaphorically speaking, and there was a feeling of "wrongness" that was highly unsettling. The last Christmas - which I could not avoid - was one of the strangest and most awkward experiences I've ever had.

Oh yes, I knew what was happening. And I hated it!

Believe me, your children know that something is wrong.

And yes, it does very much concern them. You're unhappy. The love has died. That is certainly of concern to them!

Sorry if I sound harsh, but having seen my mother go through the second divorce, I'm now of very firm the conviction that there is a point where divorce becomes inevitable; the marriage unsustainable. And that's the point when you have to cut your loses and get the hell out of there. Much better to show your children two parents living fairly happily - through apart - than showing them two parents who might live together but clearly no longer love each other.


Of course, I don't know if your marriage has gotten to that point yet. It sound like it from what your saying, but what do I know...?

I hope that the move has done you good and wish you the best of all possible luck for the future.

Same here... Made for resentments on all sides, then, and all throughout our lives. My mother had deep resentment toward us kids... she had no clue, though. And, she didn't do it on purpose. It's how she grew up... She did what she saw, what she knew... what her experiences had been. It's what she saw happening in her household. It didn't occur to her that is was unhealthy... or not right.

I had to ask myself... Do I want my kid to think my fucked-up relationship with his dad is what a normal, loving relationship looks like? Did I want to help perpetuate this disfunction onto the next generation? No, but... unfortunately, evolution... takes time... But, I'm still hopeful.
Best to all of you... really. Be true to your hearts.

Celibacy: I was celibate for awhile, but we've recently started fucking again. Much better now.

Oh yeah. That's right. This thread is about celibacy... Dang it... I had to go and remind myself, didn't I? *shakes head dejectedly*
