Sexless Marriage: Wife Doesn’t Want Any Sex During Get-Away Weekend (letter to Ask Amy)

So much for the Christian propaganda that married sex is (or will be) hot, regular, steamy, and consistent.

November 2014 letter to “Ask Amy” columnist from some married guy:

  • I have been planning a four-day weekend getaway with my wife to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We have school-age children and work full time. We decided we owed ourselves a little enjoyment on a milestone anniversary.
  • We booked a room at a very nice resort with an in-room hot tub. We had plans for breakfast in bed each morning, sightseeing, dining on a lake cruise, antiquing and just relaxing and reconnecting. (I even made special arrangements to have flowers and champagne delivered to our room.)
  • Last week while discussing our plans, my wife matter-of-factly said, “Just so you know, we aren’t going to have any sex on this trip.”
  • While intimacy between us has dropped off significantly over the past few years (though not through lack of trying on MY part), I never would have expected her to say that. Now I don’t even want to go. I am angry and insulted. Why would she say that? What should I do?
  • — Celebrate or Celibate
