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:
- DEAR AMY:
- 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
