Many couples agree that sex is a huge part of what makes up their relationship. It’s a very direct way of showing your romantic feelings for your spouse, and it brings you closer to one another.
That being said, there are few things more upsetting in a relationship than a lack of intimacy.
Feeling a disconnect between you and your spouse is never a good thing – but that doesn’t mean your relationship can’t be saved.
If you feel like your relationship is on the rocks, couples sex therapy may be able to help.
When to Consider Couples Sex Therapy
If you’re seeing some of these signs in your love life, it may be in your best interest to seek out some extra help.
You Constantly Bicker
Every relationship has its arguments, but there is a difference between one argument and constant bickering.
Constantly being at each other’s throats is a sure sign that you need to fix up your romantic life. Bickering is the result of not being able to see eye to eye, and sex could very well be affected by it.
Usually, the problem doesn’t start from sex itself. However, if you’re constantly angry with your partner (or vice versa), you’re not going to want to have sex, which in turn could further damage your relationship.
You’re Stuck in a Sexless relationship
This is a tricky one, and it could happen for a number of reasons.
Having very little sex or no sex at all might happen because of a falling out. Sometimes, couples are getting distracted by what life throws at them.
It could be that you have kids and they’ve become a priority in your life. Or maybe your recent promotion takes up all your time and you come home too drained to connect.
There is an infinite number of reasons why you may not be having much (or any) sex, but one thing’s for sure – you need to mention it to your partner.
Chances are, if you don’t know what’s causing the problem, your spouse doesn’t either. Get connected and find out what’s going on, before the problem gets worse.
You’re Considering Breaking Up
This is not a situation you or your spouse should want to be in.
Usually, a lack of sex isn’t enough of a reason to call for a breakup, but it can certainly get the snowball rolling.
If your mind is constantly imagining your breakup like a scene from a soap opera, you need to seek sex counseling – and fast.
Often the root of the problem is simple. Maybe it’s too little communication, or one partner is constantly doing little things that annoy the other. Luckily, most situations can be handled with proper counseling.
