How does lack of sex impact a relationship? I work long hours and run my own business, leaving little time for intimacy. My husband works from home, and expects me to come home stress free and ready to be intimate.

It is time for your husband to bring you a late night candle lit dinner, with a blanket and champagn. Then lock your office door. Work is not the only thing in life. You work to make a living, not live to work.

This comes up when I searched for two shall become one.

He then declares a great and beautiful truth inscribed in creation: “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer twobut one flesh” (Mark 10:6–8).

I reference it not because it is in the bible, but wherever it written, it speaks the truth.

Most marriages are generative (producing offspring).

More importantly, they must be "creative" and foster the love and the relationship between a man and the woman.  (I am not excluding the issue of same-sex marriage---I simply cannot speak intelligently about it.)

I've never heard of couples who went on separate vacations for their honeymoon.

And despite some old jokes, I've never met either a man or a woman whose primary purpose in marrying was to be celibate.

Another quote:  "Man does not live by bread alone."

Intimacy is shared and should not be simply expected.

Having said that, understand that aligning those times when both parties are "In the Mood" or at least "Willing to try to get in the mood" is a sometimes difficult but NOT impossible. Perhaps you can set a "Date night" aside, for a time when you can "Try" to get in the mood. You may even find it to help with the stress.

Bottom line for any relationship . . . It takes work from both parties. Although we'd like to believe it should ALL just happen naturally, it often takes effort. After 28 years, I find any effort towards my marriage to be a worthy and rewarding endeavor.

Two words: Sexual frustration. I am in a long distance relationship and when I do get to be with my partner, we go hard. But sometimes she isn't in the mood and that's okay. See relationships are not all about you. It's all compromise and I am sure you know that. I understand that you may not be feeling up to it but try to do it anyway for him. I'm not saying every night but once in a while wouldn't hurt. Try leaving early if you can or maybe over a weekend. My point is lack of intimacy or sex is hard on marriages. Also communicate your problems. The better he understands, the more understanding he will be. And try it before you scoff and roll your eyes saying "yeah but you don't know him". You could be pleasantly surprised.
