Help! I’ve fallen out of lust with my husband
TV’s sTeph and Dom parker, 51 and 54, draw on their 20 years of marriage to solve your relationship problems . . .
HUSBAND and I have been married for 16 years and together for 20. We have two kids, aged 12 and 14, and a generally good marriage.
He’s a great dad and, as a couple, we still get on really well. The problem is our sex life: we haven’t had sex for a year. We both work long hours — I recently went back to fulltime nursing, while he has a demanding job as an engineer. At first, I blamed tiredness, and he didn’t seem too bothered, but the problem really is that I don’t fancy him any more.
He’s my best friend, but the spark is no longer there. I don’t fancy anybody else — I just feel like that part of my life is over.
We’re going on holiday in a few weeks and he’s already making comments about me wearing a bikini. I know he’s going to want to have sex.
I’m scared that if we don’t, he’ll leave me. What can I do?
