Psa: real love is not a romance novel, romantic comedy, or penthouse forum letter.

The ___? I can’t handle these LOL.

Love is not what they write in books, put in movies and TV shows, etc. It is not a PHYSICAL thing. Can you show love in a physical manner? Yes. But it’s more than that. Not going to waste my breath on this post though because again, I call BS.

jennymack89:  Here’s whatcha do.  Break up with your Fiance on the condition that he take the million dollars and say that he broke up with you.  Split it with him.  Live happily ever after and find a guy you’re more compatible with and less neurotic about.  

You’re welcome.

Fi and I have been togther 19 years.  We will finally be getting married at our 20th anniversary.

Love changes over time, but that does not mean it diminshes or is gone.  And sex can be an expression of love, but not love iteslf.  Beleive me, when you are close to 40, work 40+ hours a week, try to make time to work out, clean house, and then work on art projects, sleep is often more important than sex.  The lack of desire is not an issue.  It’s a lack of energy, and the knowledge that having sex means no time to go to the gym because you have so little time in the evenings.  And you will be zonked out by 10PM even if you fight going to bed till midnight.  

I think Fiance and I love each other more than we did when we first started dating, simply through virtue of actually knowing each other more and more.  

Ths does not mean I don’t relish days when he goes out and I have the house to myself, or that he wants me hanging on him all the time when we’re both at home.

jennymack89:  There’s a lot going on in your post.  Firstly, I think to be ready for marriage, you have to be aquainted with the idea that love does not mean sex.  Yes, sex is a very important part of a relationship, but if you have kids, or if one of you is in an accident, you have to travel for work, or just both of you become very frantic in life,you will more than likeyl go through a dry spell.  You need to be able to communicate and respect each other well that it does only remain a dry spell.  

More important than ensuring you ‘bang’ everyday, is whether you are compatible, including morally, spiritually etc.  If you fight a lot and it’s hard work, it will only get worse with time.  Marriage rarely fixes anything! 

Honestly, from your post it sounds like you are nowhere near being ready for marriage.  I think you should try some couples counselling to see how well you both really work together before jumping into marriage.

I am stunned he fits in 1000 kisses a day with sex everyday, and 4-6x on Saturdays. When do you guys get to shower or brush your teeth…or work?

You are the oddest bee. Your relationship (sorry, your realtionship) sounds somewhat dysfunctional from the start. I agree with the bee who said it sounds like you talked yourself into being with him…and still are doing that. Or you like to troll.

I love my husband in a deeper way all the time. Our bond has only grown. We don’t need to have sex everyday to feel connected, to be affectionate, to love, and to respect each other deeply.

jennymack89:  No. I think a good number of couples aren’t that great from the start and after 10, 20, 30 years the cracks grow and start to show. I’ve seen couples together 5 years who show zero affection and bicker like crazy and elderly couples who were super sweet and romantic with each other. I’m guessing they were probably super sweet and romantic with each other when they’d only been together for 5 years too.

Kikibear:  Thanks for the recap, babe! This made my night.


ETA: Oh and yes, to answer OP’s question. The second my Fiance starts balding imma stop having sex with him 15.4 times per weekday and 63.8 times on weekends and head for the door.

I think you’re afraid to admit to yourself that you have doubts about this relationship. I could be wrong..

I love him so much more every single day, I feel that maybe he doesnt love as much, but I know mine just grows and grows for him.
