How To Repair A Broken Relationship

A breakup is never easy, but mending a broken relationship can be even harder.

If you’re having trouble getting back on track with your partner, here are some tips on how to repair a broken relationship.

If your relationship is in trouble, don’t despair.

There are ways to fix it. All relationships have their ups and downs, but if you’re finding that yours is consistently heading south, then something needs to change.

The failure of a relationship is always associated with emotional pain. After all, you lose a person you once loved very much.

For this reason, it is not at all uncommon for people to close their eyes to the facts and cling to a partnership despite dissatisfaction.

In the long run, however, this worsens the suffering for both parties.

Therapists don’t always use the term “broken” to describe a relationship in need of repair. Instead, they use “dysfunctional relationship dynamics,”

“A dysfunctional relationship dynamic is a way that a couple has of communicating and relating that isn’t working to create an emotionally safe and supportive connection,” she says.

“It’s often easy to see. One or both partners is unhappy, angry, and frustrated. Usually, both partners feel like the other one doesn’t hear or understand them.”

The first step is recognizing that there’s a problem. If you’re not sure, ask yourself these questions:

Do we argue all the time?

Do we never have fun anymore?

Do we always seem to be annoyed with each other?

Is one of us always unhappy?

If you answered yes to any of these, then your relationship is in trouble. But don’t worry, there are things you can do to turn it around.

1. Accept your role in damaging the relationship

The first step to fixing a relationship you ruined is to accept that you caused it to crumble. Speaking from experience, Christy says that it can be the hardest part of the journey.

“I ruined the best relationship I ever had and yet I was more focused on finding faults with David and our relationship to feel less horrible about what had transpired. I think it’s a common tendency.

You inevitably look for faults in your partner that you can use as an excuse to justify your own actions and mistakes,” she adds.

If you want to fix a broken relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend, it is imperative to focus on the I rather than you. Acknowledge and accept your mistakes, and only then can you even hope to even begin repairing your damaged bond.

2. Be honest

The only way to fix a relationship is, to be honest with your partner. This means being truthful about your feelings, admitting when you’re wrong, and sharing your thoughts and desires.

What Does a Healthy Relationship Look Like?

A healthy relationship is one where both partners are committed to working things out. They’re willing to communicate and they’re open to hearing each other’s needs. They’re also willing to compromise and find a middle ground. Lastly, a healthy relationship is built on trust and respect.

Characteristics of Healthy Relationships

Respect for privacy and space. You don’t have to be with your partner 24/7.

Your partner encourages you to spend time with friends without them and to participate in activities that you enjoy.

You feel comfortable expressing your opinions and concerns to your partner.

Your feel physically safe and your partner doesn’t force you to have sex or to do things that make you feel uncomfortable.

Your partner respects your wishes and feelings and you can compromise and negotiate when there are disagreements or conflicts.

The foundation of a healthy relationship includes:

Boundaries: You and your partner are able to find ways to meet each other’s needs in ways that you both feel comfortable with.

Communication: You and your partner can share your feelings, even when you don’t agree, in a way that makes the other person feel safe, heard, and not judged.

Trust: Building trust can take time and allows couples to be vulnerable with one another knowing that they can rely on the other person.

Consent: Most commonly used when you’re being sexually active, giving consent means that you are okay with what is happening and that no one is forcing you or guilting you into doing anything that you don’t want to do. Consent can be given and taken back at any time, and giving consent once does not mean you automatically give consent in the future.

See how these things go hand in hand by exploring the other sections to your left.

Please keep in mind that in some abusive relationships, trying to enforce boundaries, honest communication, trust, and other healthy behaviors could put your safety at risk. Remember, abuse is about power and control and someone who is abusive might not want to give up their control over you.

Spend time with your Partner

Quality time is important for any relationship, but it can be especially helpful if your partner is feeling disconnected from you.

Here are some ideas on how to spend quality time with your partner:

Talk and listen to each other: Have an open conversation where you both share how you’re feeling. Take turns talking and really try to listen to what the other person is saying. This can help build trust and understanding.

Do something together: Spend time doing an activity that you both enjoy. This can be anything from going for a walk to playing a game to cooking dinner together.

Be present: When you’re with your partner, try to be fully present and engaged in the conversation or activity. This means putting away your phone, making eye contact, and really paying attention to what the other person is saying or doing. 

If you’re not sure how to start a conversation with your partner, here are some questions that can help get the ball rolling:

What did you do today?

What are you looking forward to in the near future?

How are you feeling?

Is there anything on your mind that you’d like to talk about?

What can I do to support you right now?

By spending quality time with your partner, you can help rebuild your relationship and create a stronger connection.

Conclusion:

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to repairing a broken relationship. Every situation is different and will require its own unique approach.

However, by following the tips above, you can start to rebuild your relationship and create a stronger, healthier bond with your partner.

And if you find yourself in an abusive relationship, please remember that you are not alone. Help is available.

Rules of No Contact

What is the No Contact Rule?

The No Contact Rule is a commonly recommended solution to various problems in the immediate aftermath of a breakup. This is a time when emotions can run high and fluctuate wildly, so it is often a good time for some distance between you and your ex. This can help you take some time to think about what it is you really want.

The rule is commonly set at 30 days, although it can be shorter in some cases or even go on permanently in others. During this time, ex-partners may avoid all forms of contact, whether face-to-face or over the phone, text, or social media. Some couples may even block each other on social media sites.

The specific rules can vary among different people, but the key feature is limiting communication.

How To Start No Contact?

If you have been contacting your ex regularly since the breakup, the best way to start no contact is to just stop contacting them.

If your ex has been initiating contact with you on and off, you should let them know that you intend to take some space from them and that you want them to stop contacting you for a while. You should be honest about why you are doing this, that is, to help you heal from the breakup and get some perspective.

The signs that the No Contact Rule is working might be confusing. You are unlikely to see all of these signs, but more than one or two may well signal that things are working out the way you would like.

1. You get a text from your ex

Of course, if you suddenly get a text from your ex, he has clearly been thinking about you for some reason. If he says that he is missing you, you can be sure that the No Contact Rule has worked. However, it is more likely that if your ex reaches out to you, the reasons will be less obvious.

If he asks you vaguely, “how are you doing?” he may be checking up to see if you are okay, or he may be trying to test the water with a general conversation. Either way, he is probably aware that breaking the No Contact Rule may signal that he thinks about you. Your ex-boyfriend clearly feels that contacting you is still important enough to be worth doing.

2. Your ex posts about you on social media

If your ex-boyfriend posts about you on social media, it can be a sign that he is thinking about you. This can take the form of a comment on one of your posts, or even just a “like” on something you have put up.

It can also be a sign that he is trying to get your attention by posting something that he knows you will see. This might be a photo of the two of you together, or even just a status update about something that you have in common.

3. Your ex talks about you to mutual friends

If your ex-boyfriend is talking about you to your mutual friends, this can be a sign that he is thinking about you. He may be sharing things in order to get them off of his chest, or perhaps he does not want to keep this relationship secret from the people who already know you both.

If your ex-boyfriend talks about your breakup with other people, it can be a sign that he is not over you yet. He may be hoping for sympathy from others, or he could even be trying to make you jealous by talking about other women.

4. Your ex-boyfriend stares at you

If your ex-boyfriend stares at you, this can be a sign that he is still thinking about you. It may be that he is a little obsessed with you and simply can’t take his eyes off of you.

However, it is also possible that your ex-boyfriend is simply trying to figure out if there is any chance that you might still be interested in getting back together. If your ex feels like he has missed an opportunity, or if he is simply not ready to let go of this relationship, then a lingering stare may be the sign that you need.

5. Your ex-boyfriend asks mutual friends about you

If your ex-boyfriend asks mutual friends about you, it can be a sign that he is thinking about you and wants to know how things’ are going. This may be a sign that he is trying to keep tabs on you, or it could mean that he simply wants some kind of connection with you.

There are many possible reasons why your ex-boyfriend might ask mutual friends about you, so it is important not to jump to conclusions too quickly. However, if this seems like a pattern, it may be a sign that he is not ready to move on just yet.

6. Your ex-boyfriend tries to make you jealous

If your ex-boyfriend tries to make you jealous, it could be a sign that he is still thinking about you. He may be trying to get your attention by flirting with other women, or he could be trying to make you see that he is still attractive and desirable.

Your ex-boyfriend may also be trying to make you jealous in order to get a reaction out of you. If he is hoping that you will get angry or upset, it can be a sign that he is not over you yet.

7. Your ex-boyfriend sends you a DM

If your ex-boyfriend sends you a message on social media, it can be a sign that he is thinking about you. He may simply want to get in touch to chat and catch up, or he could be trying to gauge your feelings by asking if you would like to meet up.

This could also be a sign that your ex-boyfriend is trying to start a conversation with you in order to see if there is any chance of getting back together. If he is asking about your life and how you are doing, it may be a sign that he still cares about you.

8. Your ex-boyfriend likes your posts

If your ex-boyfriend likes your posts on social media, it can be a sign that he is still thinking about you. He may be interested in what you are doing and how you are feeling, or he could simply be trying to get your attention.

Liking your posts can also be a way for your ex-boyfriend to start a conversation with you. If he leaves a comment on one of your posts, it may be a sign that he wants to talk to you.

9. Your ex-boyfriend texts you

If your ex-boyfriend texts you, it can be a sign that he is thinking about you. He may simply want to talk to you and catch up, or he may be interested in getting back together.

Texting can also be a way for your ex-boyfriend to gauge your feelings. If he is asking how you are doing and what you have been up to, it may be a sign that he still cares about you.

10. Your ex-boyfriend calls you

If your ex-boyfriend calls you, it can be a sign that he is thinking about you. He may want to talk to you and catch up, or he may be interested in getting back together.

Calling can also be a way for your ex-boyfriend to gauge your feelings. If he is asking how you are doing and what you have been up to, it may be a sign that he still cares about you.

Benefits of Using the No Contact Rule

1. The No Contact Rule can help you take a step back and gain some much-needed perspective. During this time, you can focus on yourself and your own well-being, instead of obsessing over your ex-boyfriend.

2. The No Contact Rule gives you some space to reflect on the relationship and why it ended. This can help you gain a better understanding of the issues that may have led to the breakup, and it can help you work through any negative emotions or lingering doubts.

3. The No Contact Rule gives your ex-boyfriend time to reflect on the relationship as well. This can be a good thing because it gives him a chance to miss you and realize that he wants to get back together.

4. The No Contact Rule can help you avoid any further drama or conflict with your ex-boyfriend. If you are constantly arguing or fighting, it can be very difficult to move on and ell. By taking some space, he may be able to cultivate a more positive attitude towards you.

5. The No Contact Rule can help you focus on your own happiness. This is a time to focus on yourself and your own needs, without worrying about your ex-boyfriend. By taking care of yourself, you will be in a better place emotionally and mentally, which can make it easier to get over your ex and move on with your life. Ultimately, the benefits of the No Contact Rule are many, and it can be a powerful tool for anyone going through a breakup. If you are thinking about trying this strategy yourself, just remember to stay positive and stay focused on your own needs.

What is self-respect?

Self-respect is the ability to value and treat yourself with dignity and respect. It involves having a positive view of yourself and trusting in your abilities, as well as honoring your own needs and desires. Other aspects of self-respect include respecting others, standing up for yourself, speaking your mind, and taking care of yourself physically and emotionally.

Tips to develop and show self-respect

1. Develop a positive view of yourself

One of the most important things you can do for your self-respect is to develop a positive view of yourself. This means believing in your own abilities and trusting that you are capable of achieving your goals. It also involves accepting yourself for who you are, flaws and all. If you have trouble developing a positive view of yourself, try spending some time each day doing things that make you feel good about yourself, such as practicing self-care, working on a passion project, or spending time with loved ones.

2. Speak your mind and stand up for yourself

Another key aspect of self-respect is being willing to speak your mind and stand up for yourself. This means having the confidence to share your opinions and beliefs, even if they are different from others. It also means knowing when to say “no” and setting boundaries with others. If you find it difficult to speak up for yourself, try practicing in less challenging situations first, such as with friends or family members. Once you feel more confident, you can start speaking up in more difficult situations.

3. Honor your needs and desires

In order to show self-respect, it is important to honor your own needs and desires. This means listening to your gut instinct and following your heart, even if it means going against the grain. It also involves being kind to yourself and prioritizing your well-being, both physically and emotionally.

4. Take care of yourself physically and emotionally

In addition to honoring your needs and desires, it is essential to take good care of yourself on a physical and emotional level. This means eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep each night, taking time for relaxation and hobbies, and seeking professional help if you are struggling with your mental health.

5. Respect others

Finally, showing self-respect also involves respecting others. This means treating others with kindness and consideration, even if you don’t agree with them. It also includes being open-minded and listening to others’ perspectives, even if they are different from your own. By developing and showing self-respect, you can cultivate healthier relationships with others and a more positive view of yourself.

Conclusion

The No Contact Rule is a commonly recommended strategy for dealing with various relationship challenges.

This can help you take some time to reflect on your feelings and priorities and decide if you really want to get back together with your ex-boyfriend.

However, if you do decide to reach out to your ex, it is important to be honest, patient, and understanding.

This may help you rebuild trust and restore your relationship over time, but there is no guarantee that this will happen. Ultimately, whether or not the No Contact Rule is right for you depends on a number of different factors, including the reasons for your breakup, how long it has been since the split, and what you are hoping to achieve by getting back together.

There is no definite answer to this question, as the success of a relationship after no contact depends on a number of different factors. These can include how long it has been since the breakup, what led to the split in the first place, and what each partner hopes to achieve by getting back together. However, if you feel like no contact is the right strategy for you, it may help you to work through some of the challenges in your relationship and to improve your chances of getting back together with your ex-boyfriend.

Breaking the no contact rule can have negative consequences for your relationship, such as making it harder to rebuild trust and restore your connection with your ex-boyfriend. However, if you do break this rule unintentionally or by accident, there is no need to worry. Simply take some time to reflect on what happened and try to avoid repeating the same mistakes in the future.

The decision to text your ex-boyfriend first after no contact is a personal one, and there is no right or wrong answer. Ultimately, it depends on factors such as how long it has been since the breakup, what led to the split in the first place, and what you are hoping to achieve by getting back together.

How To Fix A Broken Relationship ~ 19 Things You Must Know

In this article, we will discuss how to fix a broken relationship even if it’s within a marriage.

May be you feel like all hope is lost… relax…. read this first.

Why Do Relationships Break Or Fail?

There are many reasons why relationships fall apart.

  • It could be that you and your partner have grown apart over time and now have different interests, goals, and values.
  • It could be that you’re unable to resolve conflict in a healthy way, or that one or both of you tend to withdraw or shut down when things get tough.
  • It could be that you have different ideas about how to handle finances, child-rearing, or other important life decisions.

Whatever the reason is, if you find yourself in a failing or broken relationship, it’s important to be intentional with your actions or lack there of.

Otherwise, the situation is likely to only get worse.

The simple truth is that we are humans.

We’re complicated.

And relationships between complicated humans are even MORE complicated.

#1. Trust Has Left The Building

The cement of your relationship is Trust. without it, your relationship will fail.

Trust issues are very common.

Trust issues usually start in our childhood.

We learn them in our families.

And then we bring them into our relationships.

When we stop trusting ourselves, we stopped trusting others.

And when we stop trusting others, we stop trusting ourselves.

Trust is a two-way street.

Some of the bad things that happen when you lose trust are:

  1. Infidelity
  2. Jealousy
  3. Anxious behavior
  4. Smothering
  5. Insecurities

And a whole lot more.

The first thing you need to do is to figure out whether your trust issues are because your partner is not trust-able

…OR these are anxiety and insecurity issues inside of you.

Then you have to work on getting reconnected to your partner.

I’ll tell you more about how to do that in a bit.

#2. Your Communication Sucks

This is another one of those very common reasons relationships start to fall apart.

If you’re not communicating well, then you’re not going to be able to meet each other’s needs.

You’re always going to have misunderstandings and a deep breakdown of connection.

Communication is one of the most important factors in a relationship because it’s how you navigate with your partner

If your communication isn’t in sync and compatible, you will definitely have problems.

And eventually, you will turn to a therapist or counselor to help you with them.

But chances are it will be too late.

Make sure you’re always working on your communication.

Not just with your romantic partner, but with everyone in your life.

#3. You are on different maps/timetables

Sometimes it just happens that we are on different time schedules, or in different places in our life.

The timing is just wrong.

It can be hard to see this when you want a relationship to work.

But sometimes the situation is out of your control and you just need to walk away.

And sometimes you meet in the same place but you’re going at different speeds.

So you fall out of step with each other.

He might be going slower, and you might be moving faster towards your relationship goals.

You have to decide for yourself if you’re willing and patient enough to go at your partner’s speed.

Sometimes this means you have different priorities at the moment.

You may want to start a family, but he wants to start a business.

This will be something you must navigate and negotiate along the way if you want it to work.

#4. You’re just not a match

Very frequently, I see couples that get together and start a relationship.

But they didn’t ever stop to really make sure the other person was right for them.

One or both of them was just desperate to get into a relationship as fast as they could.

So they threw their needs out the window and ignored how wrong this person was for them.

They might have been seeking relief from anxiety, or from loneliness. But for whatever reason, they didn’t choose well.

If each person in a relationship is completely healthy, then they could probably start a relationship with almost anybody.

But compatibility is a huge issue if you are not in a whole and healthy place with your own self-esteem and self-worth.

One of the biggest love myths out there is that love conquers everything.

The good news is, that there are relationship advice that you can execute to repair the damage.

fixing a broken relationship

#1. Talk about what’s going on

The first step is to talk about what’s wrong.

You need to express your feelings and needs in a way that is respectful and non-blaming.

If you can’t do that, I recommends seeing a therapist or counselor who can help you learn how to communicate effectively.

#2. Make time for each other

One of the biggest reasons relationships fail is because couples don’t make time for each other.

Life gets busy and before you know it, you’re living parallel lives under the same roof.

You need to make time for each other—time to talk, time to connect.

#3. Be willing to compromise

In any relationship, there are going to be times when you have to compromise.

You might not always get your way, but that’s OK.

The important thing is that you’re both willing to give a little.

#4. Learn to forgive

If you want your relationship to thrive, you need to learn to forgive.

We all make mistakes—we’re only human.

The key is to not hold onto the anger and resentment.

If you can learn to let go, it will do wonders for your relationship.

#5. Don’t take each other for granted

One of the easiest ways to kill a relationship is to take your partner for granted.

We all need to feel valued and appreciated.

If you stop doing the things that made your partner fall in love with you in the first place, don’t be surprised if they start to look elsewhere.

#6. Keep the romance alive

Another common mistake couples make is letting the romance die.

It’s important to keep the spark alive.

Do the things you used to do when you were first dating—go on dates, have fun together, show each other how much you care.

#7. Work as a team

In any relationship, it’s important to remember that you’re on the same team.

You’re in this together, so you need to work together to make it work.

That means being supportive, understanding, and helpful—even when you don’t feel like it.

#8. Don’t try to change each other

One of the biggest mistakes couples make is trying to change each other all in the name of duty and responsibility forgetting that it is a romantic relationship at the end of the day.

You need to accept each other—flaws and all.

If you can learn to love and accept each other just as you are, it will do wonders for your relationship.

#9. Communicate, communicate, communicate

If there’s one piece of advice that experts agree on, it’s that communication is key to a successful relationship… to put more accurately… EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION.

You need to be able to talk to each other—about everything.

The more you communicate, the closer you’ll become .

#10. Develop Listening Skills

It is impossible to avoid arguments in any relationship. 

And in those moments, it is equally impossible to prevent different perspectives of understanding right and wrong and ways of solving problems. 

In such circumstances, there is no limit on what is required to be said and heard by both parties, which is necessary.

Because sometimes, or most of the time, the conversation becomes so fierce that the very limit of speaking is violated.

Due to a lack of listening ability, you take some such steps in anger which directly damages the relationship. 

#11. Accepting the Circumstances and Your Partner

Circumstances can never be right and wrong in relationships.

Didn’t you see people coming together in bad times?

Haven’t you noticed people make or break in bad times? 

If you look at history, you will find hundreds of examples where people came together in worse conditions, whether WWI or WWII.

Whether it’s raising a voice against racism or sexism.

People always came together to face the storm and grow out of them. 

It is all up to our belief whether we can adapt to the circumstances or not. 

We should always learn from bad times and always make good use of good times.

That’s the key to getting along with your partner.

#12. The Initiative Is Crucial to Overcome Relationship Struggles

Whether your relationship is on the verge of breaking or you are going through many troubles, if you want to stay with your partner and feel that everything will be right after a while, then the initiative you take to repair your relationship is always proven effective. 

After a big fight, if you take the initiative and make your partner feel that they are more important than your needs, then believe that your initiative is commendable enough to strengthen your relationship.

The initiative will always be needed to keep the relationship successful and constantly fresh; a good initiative always brings closeness.

#13. Apologize To Restore the Relationship

One of the hallmarks of a bad relationship is that both sides see apologizing as their weakness, due to which they feel hesitant to apologize even if they want.

According to the study, ‘The Psychology of offering an Apology by Karina Schumann it’s proposed that the reasons why people hesitate to offer an apology or high-quality apologies are,

  1. Low concern for the victim or relationship,
  2. The perceived threat to self-image,
  3. And perceived apology ineffectiveness.

But, if you want to fix your relationship, you must rise above these barriers.

Because if you don’t, what you do is end the 1% scope of repairing a broken relationship. 

To cherish any relationship, it is as essential to apologize as to give forgiveness; it is precisely the same as washing and drying cloth.

Here, both water and sunlight make the cloth wearable.

Similarly, both apologizing and offering forgiveness make the relationship believable.

But be sure to be clear on why you are apologizing and ensure you’ve taken enough time to assess what went wrong; be intentional.

#14. Understand Your Moral, Social, and Personal Circle

Even though your relationship is going through a bad phase – facing trust issues, anxiety, separation, etc., if you are fulfilling your moral responsibility towards your partner, you are trying to take your relationship in the right direction. 

Here you have a sense of moral obligation and personal or social commitments. 

You know how to fulfill all these responsibilities well, then understand that you have almost saved your relationship from being ruined. 

Because responsibilities always give strength, courage, and the ability to understand right and wrong.

And if you have all this in you, you will not let anything go wrong.

#15. Be Sure to Give Opportunities to Build Trust to Improve the Relationship

Trust issues in a relationship can never blossom a tree of love.

Therefore, in a broken relationship, it is necessary to create such opportunities to build trust between both parties, which can instill a sense of confidence in both parties towards each other. 

And it’s not that it takes a lot of effort to build trust, it’s just small things that ensure that you have unwavering faith in your partner. 

For example, if you have life insurance and your partner is a nominee in it, or they are your partner in any of your big projects, or you take your partner’s advice for small household needs.

Now it comes to how do you determine the opportunities to build trust?

Well to build trust you need combined forces of different human fundamental aspects.

You cannot build trust all alone.

And the aspects are, 

  1. Transparency.
  2. Respect and…
  3. Loyalty.

Without these, it’s impossible to trust or build it in any given situation.

Let’s discuss each in detail. 

#16. Loyalty Is Essential to Keep Yourself Away From a Damaged Relationship

You have to be loyal to your partner to mend a deteriorating relationship because you must understand that hurting feelings will prove fatal for any relationship.

If you are lying to your partner or have a relationship with someone else, then understand that you are not paying attention to your partner’s needs

You don’t care if your infidelity can lead to your partner getting depressed and how bad the outcome will be.

If you are not loyal to your partner, then understand that you do not respect your relationship at all.

And where there is no respect, there’s no love.

And where there’s no love, there’s no relationship.

It has been destroyed.

Also, if you’re not loyal, you cannot expect your partner to be loyal.

Once you cross your line, they might probably cross as well. 

And thus, you’ve both entered the phase of a broken relationship.

#17. Controlling and Managing Your Expectations

If the ambition and expectations start exceeding the limit in any relationship, whether the relationship of friendship, husband-wife, or business, then understand that the seeds of condemnation, neglect, and hatred have been planted in that relationship. 

It is essential to regulate and control the expectations to live in harmony because the human mind always craves to get something new and thrilled.

And this craving starts to take away that person from his/her loved ones. 

The person begins to remain irritable… resentment

He starts to force his people to satisfy his craving which further gives birth to instability in the relationship. 

When his expectations don’t get fulfilled, he starts to blame his people.

Both the parties in the relationship should set their expectations according to their partner’s economic, social, and family situation.

This situation can be better controlled by mutual coordination.

#18. Do Not Take Any Wrong Decisions Under Stress or Anger

When the relationship starts deteriorating, it is natural for the person associated with that relationship to go into depression.

But can that person improve his relationship by making some wrong decisions due to depression? 

You should answer this.

What’s your mind saying?

What’s your first reaction? 

I believe it’s NO.

By taking a bad decision, you are harming yourself and the people you love.

Instead of fixing your relationship with one wrong decision, you are on the contrary worsening it even more. 

In a deteriorating relationship, the person makes some bad decisions, such as drinking or getting intoxicated, abusing the partner, harming them, trying to hurt himself, not showing respect to the people in the relationship, adopting bad habits, etc. 

Due to even more wrong decisions, a person tends to end the relationship forever.

And from there, it becomes tough to improve the relationship. 

Therefore, make every noble effort to fix your relationship with thoughtfulness so that your relationship becomes stronger… be intentional.

#19. Seek professional help

If you’ve tried everything and nothing seems to be working, it may be time to seek professional help.

A professional can help you learn how to communicate effectively, resolve conflict, and deal with other issues that may be affecting your relationship.

While it’s not always easy, repairing the damage in a relationship is possible—if you’re willing to put in the work.

With patience, understanding, and a little effort, you and your partner can get back on track and build a stronger, more intimate connection.

What makes a healthy relationship?

how to fix a broken relationship

Every relationship is unique, and people come together for many different reasons.

Part of what defines a healthy relationship is sharing a common goal for exactly what you want the relationship to be and where you want it to go.

And that’s something you’ll only know by talking deeply and honestly with your partner.

However, there are also some characteristics that most healthy relationships have in common.

Knowing these basic principles can help keep your relationship meaningful, fulfilling, and exciting whatever goals you’re working towards or challenges you’re facing together.

A. You maintain a meaningful emotional connection with each other. 

You each make the other feel loved and emotionally fulfilled.

There’s a difference between being loved and feeling loved.

When you feel loved, it makes you feel accepted and valued by your partner, like someone truly gets you.

Some relationships get stuck in peaceful coexistence, but without the partners truly relating to each other emotionally.

While the union may seem stable on the surface, a lack of ongoing involvement and emotional connection serves only to add distance between two people.

B. You’re not afraid of (respectful) disagreement.

Some couples talk things out quietly, while others may raise their voices and passionately disagree.

The key to a strong relationship, though, is not to be fearful of conflict.

You need to feel safe to express things that bother you without fear of retaliation and be able to resolve conflict without humiliation, degradation, or insisting on being right.

C. You keep outside relationships and interests alive.

Despite the claims of romantic fiction or movies, no one person can meet all of your needs.

In fact, expecting too much from your partner can put unhealthy pressure on a relationship.

Learn about marriage counseling…

To stimulate and enrich your romantic relationship, it’s important to sustain your own identity outside of the relationship, preserve connections with family and friends, and maintain your hobbies and interests.

D. You communicate openly and honestly.

Good and effective communication is a key part of any relationship.

When both people know what they want from the relationship and feel comfortable expressing their needs, fears, and desires,

…it can increase trust and strengthen the bond between you.

In Conclusion…

Good, healthy relationships will sometimes be challenging.

But it’s all worth it.

You and your partner put yourselves through the challenge for the good things that come from a relationship.

Remember that this is always the case, even during the best phases of a relationship.

The challenge is further amplified during or after a separation.

Our faulty ideas of love, alone, won’t keep a relationship functioning.

It needs care and attention to allow both partners to grow and develop throughout its course.

A relationship can’t stay like it is during the first stages, skillful partnership will be required to make things work.

A healthy relationship will only happen if both people are prepared to work at the outcome, making sure all of the key elements work.

The most difficult challenges can be overcome with two people working together, for the mutual good.

If you have been going through difficult times, it can be hard to get a perspective on things.

Buy the course on Udemy…

It’s possible to do this with logical, sensible thinking.

Remember that the person you love has not disappeared, no matter what the circumstances.

You must reconnect with that person, allowing them to reconnect to you, in order to build or rebuild a solid, healthy relationship.

The main reasons why relationships fail are loss of trust, poor communication, lack of respect, a difference in priorities, and little intimacy.

A common trajectory for the end of a relationship is the slow tapering-off; a protracted period of tell-tale signs and wilful denial, as motivation to patch things up dwindles in one or both partners. A sudden, sharp break can feel more shocking, but it’s also clearer.

A toxic relationship is one that makes you feel unsupported, misunderstood, demeaned, or attacked. On a basic level, any relationship that makes you feel worse rather than better can become toxic over time.

My Wife Loves Me But Doesn’t Desire Me 💔

You are about to discover what to do if all signals indicate that the wife you married doesn’t desire you anymore even though she claims she loves you.

It’s perfectly normal for a wife to love her husband, but sometimes not feel sexually attracted to him.

While desire cannot be negotiated, it can absolutely be influenced with some tips we will share in this article.

There could be any number of reasons for this, such as a lack of emotional connection, mismatched libido levels or unresolved anger or resentment.

If you’re in this situation, it’s important to talk to your spouse and figure out what’s causing the disconnect.

You may need to see a therapist to help address the underlying issues; you can start with a family therapist.

Here are some very important lessons that we will cover to give you a full understanding and tactful things you can do to rekindle things:

  2. What is the Difference Between Love and Sexual Desire?
  3. “What Does it Mean When My Wife Loves Me But Doesn’t Desire Me?”
  4. How does this affect a marriage and relationship?

… and more.

My Wife Never Touches Me Anymore

“She used to be so affectionate, but now she seems distant and removed. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I fear that she may be cheating on me or is no longer interested in me. I don’t know how much longer I can take this.”

This kind of problem always start with a wife losing interest.

Let’s dive right in…

3 Signs That Your Wife Is Losing Interest

It can be difficult to tell if your wife is losing interest in you.

However, there are 4 of many other signs you can look out for.

  • Sign #3 – One common sign is if your wife starts to avoid sexual intimacy.
  • Sign #2 – If she stops taking care of herself physically or stops dressing up for you, this can also be a sign that she’s losing interest.
  • Sign #1 – Another sign is if she becomes critical or negative towards you.

If your wife shows any of these signs, it might be time to talk to her about your concerns and see if there’s anything wrong.

The Meaning of “Desire” In A Marriage

When we think of the word “desire,” we often think of our sex life in a marriage and sexual desire.

However, desire is much more than that.

Desire is a yearning or craving for something, someone or the presence of someone.

It can be a strong feeling or emotion that motivates us to take further desired action of course.

In a marriage, it is important for both spouses to feel desired by the other.

This can be accomplished in many ways, such as through words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch.

When both spouses feel desired, it builds intimacy and strengthens the bond between them.

Sexual desire is an important part of a marriage, but it is not the only type of desire that matters.

Spouses should strive to meet each other’s non-sexual desires as well, in order to create a fulfilling and lasting relationship.

That alone can help in boosting and/or sustaining sexual desires in the marriage.

What is the Difference Between Love and Sexual Desire?

When we think of love, we often think of feelings of warmth, happiness and affection.

Love is a deep, emotional connection that spouses have with each other.

It is a feeling of being drawn to someone, of wanting to be close to them and wanting to make them happy.

In marriage, however, love is not just a feeling of lust or passion.

It is much more than that because a long term relationship between 2 different human beings is involved.

Love is Action, Patient, Kind and Fifty Million Others Things.

Sexual desire, on the other hand, is a physical attraction that spouses feel for each other.

It is the desire to be intimate with someone, to touch them and to be touched by them.

Sexual desire can often be confused with love, but they are two separate things.

Sexual desire was traditionally not necessary in a marriage, but love was as a function of duty and responsibility.

However, things have changed and it will hurt your marriage if you dare attempt to discount the importance of feelings in modern day marriage.

There Is A Strong Relationship Between A Couple’s Sex Life, Love And Sexual Desire. 

A couple’s sex life is often seen as the foundation of a healthy relationship, and is usually one of the first things to disappear when a relationship starts to deteriorate.

Love is often thought of as the emotional connection that couples share, and is what keeps them together over time.

Sexual desire, on the other hand, is what motivates people to have sex and is often seen as a physical manifestation of love.

“What Does it Mean When My Wife Loves Me But Doesn’t Desire Me?”

When a wife loves her husband but does not desire him, it can be a sign that there is something wrong in the underlying relationship.

It may be that the wife is no longer attracted to her husband, or that she is unhappy with the way things are going in the relationship.

If this is the case, then it is important for the husband to talk to his wife and find out what is wrong.

He should express his love for her and try to find a way to fix whatever is causing the problem.

By the way, she might not be able to explain this in words.

How Does Your Intimacy Affect a Marriage Relationship?

Your sex life is an important part of intimacy in your marriage and the underlying relationship.

It helps to keep the spark alive and allows couples to feel close to each other.

When there is not healthy level of intimacy (which is deeper than sex), everything else starts to feel wrong.

Your Sex Life Can Take Many Different Forms, Such As Talking And Touching.

If one partner feels that they are not being desired by the other, it can be a blow to their self-esteem.

It can make them feel like they are not good enough and that they are not wanted.

This can lead to a lot of emotional pain and conflict and even emotional and full blown infidelity.

There are many ways to improve your sex life in a marriage relationship.

Couples can talk about their needs and desires, spend time together, touch each other more often, and be open and honest with each other.

But that’s usually not enough because it would most likely take one person to lead the dance.

If you are struggling with this issue, please seek help from a therapist, coach or counselor.

They can assist you in working through these feelings and improving your relationship.

6 Tips for Creating A Fulfilling Sex Life With Your Spouse Again

The Role of a Sex Therapist

A sex therapist’s role is to help couples or individuals overcome issues that are preventing them from enjoying a healthy and fulfilling sex life.

They can help with a range of issues, such as low libido, performance anxiety, erectile dysfunction, and more.

Sex therapists typically use a mix of therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), couples therapy, and psycho-education.

How A Sex Therapist Uses CBT

A sex therapist uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) which can be a great help for couples in this situation.

He or she can help the couple understand why the wife loves her husband but does not desire him.

They can also work to help the couple rebuild their intimacy and connection.

Every other advice would probably unintentionally position you to start feeling like your wife is weaponizing sex.

How can she weaponize sex if she doesn’t hate sex with you?

A sex therapist would help you do the hard work by digging deeper into the reasons behind the scenes and behind the obvious.

You can even take it further.

What To Do When Your Partner Doesn’t Want To Be Intimate

When your partner doesn’t want to be intimate, it can be a difficult and confusing experience.

You may feel like you’re not good enough or that you’re not attractive in your relationship anymore.

Here Are 5 Things You Can Do To Improve Intimacy:

1. Talk to your partner about why they don’t want to be intimate and try to understand their point of view.

2. Don’t take it personally (this is easier said than done) – remember that this has nothing to do with how much they love you.

3. Don’t pressure your partner into being intimate if they’re not comfortable doing so because desire cannot be negotiated; it can however be influenced if you have the skills.

4. Seek out support from friends or family members who can offer words of encouragement to you if need it; don’t count on them being able to correct your spouse into order.

5. Seek professional help if the situation is causing you significant distress.

Remember that you’re not alone and there are ways to deal with this situation.

Don’t hesitate to reach out for help if you need it.

“Can I Divorce My Wife For Not Sleeping With Me?”

Of course you can divorce your spouse these days for the dumbest reasons.

All you have to do is to claim “irreconcilable differences.”

But of course, I don’t just advice you to just run for the hills at the slightest sight of a slow down in intimacy.

While it may be frustrating if your wife doesn’t want to have sex with you, it’s important to remember that there are many reasons why someone may not be interested in sex.

It Could Be Due To Stress, Fatigue, or Health Issues.

If your wife is unwilling to discuss the issue, then you may want to consult with a therapist to help you understand why she is not interested in sex and work on ways to improve intimacy.

There are many bitter people on the internet that will advice you to just go ahead and kick her to the curb.

You and I know that if it was that easy, you would have done it already.

Don’t compare yourself to people who are so weak to the extent that they never had enough vested interest in a marriage they created in the first place.

Identify if you really want that marriage from a personal standpoint and then move intentionally and accordingly; with the help of good counsel and not random people on the internet.

How Health Issues Can Result in Lack of Physical Intimacy

Many couples struggle with physical intimacy at some point in their relationship.

This can be due to a variety of factors, such as fatigue, stress, or health issues.

When one partner is dealing with health issues leading to a lack of physical intimacy, it might not be as obvious.

Physical intimacy is an important part of a marriage, and when it’s lacking, it can be difficult for both partners.

There are issues that may be hormonal or psychological remnants of health crisis.

Start with a conversation as usual and a healthy does of empathy and that alone can instigate her wanting sex.

“I Just Want My Wife To Want Me But I’ve Heard Many Wives Like Her Hate Sex Eventually.”

Sexual pleasure is an important part of any relationship, and it’s no different for couples in which the wife loves her husband but doesn’t desire him.

This is a temporary issue normally and you next move can make it permanent or temporary; tread carefully.

Even though they’re not physically attracted to each other, these couples can still enjoy a healthy and fulfilling sexual relationship if they’re willing to put in the effort.

For men in this situation, it’s important to understand that sexual pleasure isn’t all about the physical act of sex.

Sexual pleasure actually starts long before the act of sex.

There is a lot more going on even though you may feel as though she hates sex; it’s highly unlikely.

One of the key things when you are going through this is to make sure you are prepared for the opportunity to be intimate when it presents itself again.

When that time comes…

Tip #3 – Second, experiment with different types of touch. Try mixing up your routine to keep things fresh; don’t be predictable.

Dedicate time specifically for intimacy, and make sure that both of you are available for it.

Here is a quick question for you to ponder.

How do you feel about entertaining sex toys in your sex life?

Your answer can make or break your sex life and intimacy; Hint: No answer is right and wrong.

Why Does My Wife Hate Initiating Sex?

There could be many reasons why your wife hates initiating sex.

It could be that she’s not attracted to you, she’s not in the mood, or she’s not feeling well.

If your wife doesn’t initiate sex very often, it might be because she’s not comfortable doing so.

Heck: It can be completely a traditional or cultural issue

Talk to her about how you feel and see if she has any concerns or suggestions.

This is one of those situations where you may want to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship and both of you as individuals.

What I want you to do is to shed more energy and light on the strengths and avoid trying to force the weaknesses with respect to the result that you want.

I would hope that your desired result is simply more sex; more passionate sex.

“My Wife Makes Excuses To Refuse Sex.”

“My wife loves me and always tells me how much she cares for me, but she doesn’t desire me sexually. She makes excuses not to sleep with me, and it’s really starting to take a toll on our relationship. I’m not sure what to do, as I still want to be intimate with her.”

Most Women In Marriage React To Unhappiness In One Or More Ways: 

Outside of health issues, she might not feel satisfied with her marriage due to the amount of time spent away from her spouse.

The most recent findings suggest that up to 50 percent of couples who have been married 10 years are dissatisfied with their marriage because they report feeling frustrated and unfulfilled.

This is a rather strong reason why most women in marriage do not want sex – it’s as if they’re trying to protect themselves from being hurt again by refusing sex.

To a large extent, this can be subconscious.

Most women refuse sex because they are afraid of getting too close, only for them to continue to feel unhappy in the marriage down the road anyway.

It’s like “why bother?”

The First Step Is Always To Talk To Your Spouse About The Issue.

If that doesn’t work, you may want to engage your seduction power as a woman; that starts with self-assessment.

  • What turned him on to you in the first place?
  • What turns him on to you right now?
  • What turns you on?

Once you find out the answer to all 3 of these questions, then you will find everything else useful in rekindling things.

Here is a last bonus tip for you.

If you are always engaged in arguments that you may have considered a harmless debate, that can sure create lower interest and desire from your spouse; It can get weird from time to time.

What a confusion right?

Are women crazy? 

How do you love a husband you don’t desire?

I was on the receiving end of those resentments she mentioned earlier and it was not fun as you can probably imagine.

We got married and I flipped my legs on the table and just relaxed like most new husbands.

After all, we are now committed to each other for life. 

PREVIOUS POST: 💔 5 Reasons Your Wife is NOT Affectionate Anymore

What else is there to worry about? So I thought or acted at least.

It’s called complacency and we all do it in one shape, form or the other.  

The truth is that I truly loved my wife and my family even back then but that didn’t stop me from being complacent.

Here is the first thing you should know.

On the other end of being complacent is a person you love who may be feeling undesired by you even if you don’t mean to.

And you know what they say about hurt-people. They hurt people right?

That’s right. But I didn’t plan out how I was going to hurt you back.

It was more-so about two people who entered a whole marriage to wing things along.

I know what you are thinking.

Why didn’t we vet properly and go through premarital counseling?

Not only did we engage in some premarital counseling,

we actually dated and were in a committed relationship for 3 years before we went to the altar.  

Here is what we know today after reviewing, consulting and coaching many people in modern marriages .

People that say “I do” don’t know what they are doing because they couldn’t possibly know.

When you haven’t experienced marriage,

you are in a completely different context and it is what it is.

So when I complained about a few things a few times only to get undesirable responses from my husband,

I continued to feel more unsafe to express myself.

The resentments started to build up naturally.

It is in fact true that unexpressed expectations turn to resentments.

It is paramount that you give your partner freedom to express their expectations and the key is to not take those expectations personally.

TRENDING: 5 Stages that Leads to a Sexless Marriage 💔

After our relationship deteriorated so badly, I was still pretty much oblivious.  

To me it wasn’t that difficult.  I just want my wife to want me and it was weird to me that she didn’t get it.

Before I knew it, I started creating room in my life for the idea of entertaining attention that was being deprived on the sidelines.

We never stopped proclaiming our love for each other verbally but I didn’t feel it. 

As a man, I simply normalized it because I grew up with Uncles who had and exercised options when it comes to women; married or not.

Like most men…

*I thought about sexual attraction.

*I wondered why you avoided intimacy and I couldn’t touch you anymore.

*I resented the audacity of committing and not showing up to our marriage.

So of course over time, the disconnection reflected occasionally in my energy and at one point, my wife verbally gave up on us.

The Main Lesson

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS: More Video on our YouTube Channel

That rock bottom helped me discover the secret. 

A certain type of love required for all marriages is a choice.

However, desire, affection, and attraction are symptoms of a certain consistent way of showing up in your marriage as a man.

A typical wife has a lot on her plate and simply doesn’t get to decide if they want to desire you or not.

Think about it.

In the beginning of your love affair, your wife desired you without knowing enough about you.

Though it wasn’t controlled, it was an attraction.

So we can agree that desire in a marriage is not some logical decision.

At least, that’s not reality.

But it can absolutely be reverse-engineered especially with the history of desire that used to exist between the two of you. 

We know it can happen again but it’s easier said than done.

With proper support it’s absolutely possible because we are a testimony.

But you will have to engage your power and it’s impossible when you are playing the victim.

But for others, it might not be so simple.

Maybe they’ve been married for a long time and have kids, or maybe they’re afraid of being alone.

Whatever the reason, it’s important to know when enough is enough.

But before we get into all that, it’s more important to know if you can savage the situation; many and probably most couples have overcome dry spells.

What is a sexless marriage?

What is a sexless marriage?

A sexless marriage is a marriage where the couple does not have sex.

This can be for a variety of reasons; the most common being that one or both spouses are not interested in sex.

When it comes to low sexual interest in marriage, there can be a lot of reasons why this might happen.

For one, it could be that one or both spouses have lost interest in sex altogether.

This could be due to boredom, fatigue, or simply not feeling attracted to their partner anymore.

Another possibility is that there may be an underlying physical issue causing the low interest in sex, such as hormonal imbalances or chronic illnesses.

Whatever the reason may be, if you’re experiencing low interest in sexual activity within your marriage, it’s important to talk to your spouse about it.

It’s possible that they’re unaware of the issue and may have no idea that you’re not interested in sex.

Causes of a Sexless Marriage

Causes of a Sexless Marriage

Before we talk about when to walk away from a sexless marriage, won’t you agree that you should learn the many causes of a sexless marriage?

One of the most common reasons is when one or both partners have lost interest in sex.

Yes… interest, desire and attraction are key elements in this.

While desire cannot be negotiated, it can definitely be influenced with some seduction skills if the cause is medical in nature.

Low level of interest can be due to a number of factors, such as stress, fatigue, boredom, or a lack of connection with their partner.

Another common cause of a sexless marriage is when one partner has a low sex drive.

This can be due to hormonal changes, medical issues, or stress.

If one partner consistently rejects sexual advances, this can also lead to a sexless marriage.

If you are in a sexless marriage, it is important to assess the situation and determine if it is something that you can work on or if it is time to walk away.

There is a big difference between sexual interest and sex drive.

Interest is what makes you want to have sex, while sex drive is what motivates you to act on that desire.

Interest can be sparked by things like sexy lingerie, kissing, or cuddling and long term effects of being in a good place and feeling safe with your spouse.

However, sex drive is more about the physical urges in moments and the need to release that tension.

It’s possible to have a high interest but a low sex drive, or vice versa.

Erectile Dysfunction Can Also Lead to a No Sex Marriage

If you’re dealing with erectile dysfunction, there are a few remedies you can try before calling it quits on your marriage.

First, you could talk to your doctor about medication or therapy that could help get your libido back up and running.

If that doesn’t work, you might want to consider couples counseling to help reignite the intimacy in your relationship.

Effects of a Sexless Marriage

Effects of a Sexless Marriage

You may be the spouse who hasn’t realized that when to walk away from a sexless marriage may be closer than you think.

May be you feel a low sexual interest towards your spouse and you are not seeing it as a matter of emergency.

A sexless marriage can have negative consequences on both spouses.

Effects of a Sexless Marriage on a Man

A lack of physical intimacy can lead to a decreased sense of self-worth and masculinity.

They may feel like they are not good enough for their wife and that they are not fulfilling their role as a husband.

And yes, it’s important that we all start to realize that feelings is one of the most important elements of life; even for a man.

This can cause a husband to withdraw from the relationship emotionally and even physically.

Effects of a Sexless Marriage on a Woman

A lack of physical intimacy can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation.

She may feel like her husband no longer finds her attractive and desirable.

This can cause her to lose interest in the underlying relationship (in many respects, more important than the marriage) and become more withdrawn.

It is often not best to just walk away from the marriage because there is more to learn from the crisis just because one partner doesn’t desire sex.

The Importance of Physical Intimacy in Marriage

One of the most important aspects of a healthy and happy marriage is physical intimacy.

When this is lacking, couples can quickly find themselves drifting apart.

Like we already mentioned, this may be due to a lack of desire, mismatched libidos, or other physical issues, but the end result is the same—a rift in the relationship.

Physical intimacy is not just about sex; it’s also about physical closeness, touch, and affection.

Couples who are physically intimate are more likely to feel connected to each other, and they are also more likely to have a stronger emotional bond.

And to stay on topic here, it significantly reduces the chances of ending up in a sexless marriage which is about 15-20% of marriages.

In fact, physical intimacy is often seen as a litmus test for the health of a relationship.

The Link Between Intimacy And A Coupe’s Sex Life

If you want a better sex life within marriage, focusing on physical sex may just work completely against that.

A Couple’s sex life is a function of many things including sex drives, the level of interest between you and your spouse presently and long term vibes.

A terrible couple’s sex life is usually the effect of complacency, resentments and nature.

As mentioned earlier, it can also be the effect of medical issues but that’s beyond the scope of this article.

The frequency of sexual intimacy between couples determines what most people use in gauging a healthy and active sex life.

An ideal sex life from our stand point requires a minimum of once a week and preferably 2-3 times per week.

Of course, there are exceptions to every rule but be sure that the exception agreeable to both parties.

It’s not enough to argue what makes an ideal and optimal sex life as an individual.

Ultimately, you need your spouse to feel satisfied in their own personal sex life as qualified in human being in a marriage.

Ideally, when to walk away from a sexless marriage is the moment either spouse feels like the other is so disconnected and selfish from their own emotional needs of love and connection.

How to Deal With a Sexless Marriage

How to Deal With a Sexless Marriage

If you are in a sexless marriage, it can be difficult to know what to do.

We have a few tips in addition to the fact that there are professionals such as sex therapist, coach and counselors that help make navigating things easier.

Sexual desire cannot be negotiated but it can be influenced with these short and few tips:

1. Talk to your partner about your concerns.

If you’re feeling unhappy in a sexless marriage, it might be time to talk to your spouse about it.

However, it’s important to approach the conversation in a constructive way. Here are a few tips:

– Don’t start by expressing how you feel.

Being honest and open about why you’re unhappy, and explaining that you want things to change may seem smart but it is anti-seductive.

instead, it’s better that you approach this from a stand point of searching for opportunities to add value.

Here is an example of how the conversation might go…

“Babe, you know how much I love an intimate time with you.

Is there anyway I can help to ease up your days and create more opportunities?”

Talk about the things that you can do to improve sexual desire.

Maybe there are certain activities or fantasies that you would be interested in trying.

– Make it clear that you’re not blaming your spouse for the problem.

Sexual desire is a complex issue, and it takes two people to create a healthy sexual relationship.

But the good news is that it take one to start the necessary dance.

That’s why we suggest approaching this from a stand point of seduction and not sex as a duty in a marriage.

– Be willing to compromise.

This works best if you’ve noticed being shut down in recent time; if the sexlessness has lasted much longer, consulting a sex therapist to help is not a bad idea.

2. Try to spice things up in the bedroom.

When it comes to marriage, there are a lot of things that need to be perfect in order for it to work.

One of the most important aspects of marriage is intimacy.

Intimacy is key to a healthy and happy marriage.

When intimacy starts to fade, it can be a sign that the marriage is in trouble.

If you’re in a sexless marriage, here are a few tips to help spice things up:

– Talk to your spouse about your needs and desires.

Communication is key in any relationship.

I take that back. There are too many people throwing the word “communication” around when it comes to relationships and marriages.

The Actual Key is Effective Communication.

And I am talking about effectiveness with respect to the context; the context here being the need to help a sexless marriage survive.

Most people think of communication as the act of talking; with respect to improving sexual desire and intimacy, listening must be involved in at least what you may consider as communication.

If you haven’t listened long and deep enough to understand why your spouse has been non-verbally communicating low interest in sex, attempting to express your own unhappiness may makes things worse.

– Experiment with new positions, fantasies, and activities.

This is useful if you are still about to make your way together to the bedroom occasionally.

It can help replace boredom and spice things up.

– Try reconnecting with your spouse on a more intimate level outside of the bedroom.

This will actually work a lot better than many of the other measures your natural instincts suggest.

As I earlier, your sex life is a function of so many activities and moments long before the bedroom.

If all else fails, consider seeking professional help such as sex therapist, counselor or marriage coach.

3. If things don’t improve, consider consulting with a sex therapist.

A sex therapist can help sexless marriages in a number of ways.

They can help to identify the root of the problem, and work with the couple to find a solution.

If one partner is not interested in sex, the therapist can help to explore the reasons for this and find ways to overcome any obstacles.

The therapist can also provide guidance on how to improve communication and intimacy in the relationship.

4. Don’t give up on your marriage.

When it comes to sexless marriages, there can be a lot of debate over whether or not to stay in the relationship.

Some people may say that you should always fight for your marriage, while others may say that if sex is not happening, then there is likely bigger problems in the relationship that need to be addressed.

From experience, we know it’s most likely the latter.

The truth is, there is no easy answer when it comes to deciding whether or not to stay in a sexless marriage.

However, it is important to remember that a sexless marriage does not have to mean a doomed marriage.

In fact, according to recent studies, sexless marriages are becoming more and more common due to the growth in alternative lifestyles; we don’t really cover that here.

But according to one study, nearly 20% of married couples are considered sexless.

So you are not alone.

In addition to that, it is important to know that common problems tend to have more than enough solutions.

Don’t give up on your marriage especially if that’s not what you want to do; avoid non-professional advices on the marriage matters.

Avoid advices from people who have worst case scenario experiences and people who tend to speak from published statistics when it comes to a marriage.

They tend to only help in projecting these experiences into your future personal life even when suggested issues may not even exist.

How to create a healthy sex life when in a sexless marriage

How to create a healthy sex life when in a sexless marriage

A lack of sex in a marriage can be very frustrating for both partners.

It’s important to figure out why the sex has stopped, and then work on fixing it.

If the lack of sex is due to an issue like mismatched libidos, there are things that you can do to increase the amount of sex that you have.

If the lack of sex is due to an unresolved conflict, then you’ll need to work on resolving the conflict before you can start having sex again.

Lack of effective communication, especially the part where a spouse feels heard can lead to lack of sex.

Not mastering the art of intimacy at a deeper level in your underlying relationship can also lead to lack of sex.

As I mentioned earlier, desire cannot be negotiated.

Nonetheless lack of sexual desire will eventually lead to lack of sex.

Desire however be created with influence and seduction which is a skill set within long term relationships and marriage.

Health and medical issues can also lead to lack of sex even in ways that are not necessarily obvious to either party.

Last but not least, lack of sex can be a result of stress and fatigue, so it is important to not forget about creating a lifestyle of fun.

If lack of sex is causing problems in your marriage, it’s important to address the issue head-on and not allow it to linger on.

Can a marriage survive without sexual intimacy?

Can a marriage survive without sexual intimacy?

A sexless marriage can be a difficult situation to deal with, but it is possible for the marriage to survive if the parties are on the same page.

It is highly unlikely in the hyper sexual society that we live in today; everywhere you look in the media, there are sexual content and motivation.

It is important to seek sex therapy to address the issue and find a way to regain sexual intimacy in the marriage.

One of the main things you can find in sex therapy is sex education.

Believe it or not, many people survived childhood without any form of sexual, attraction and seduction education ahead of marriage.

Sex therapy can help you learn about different sexual techniques, positions, and products that can help increase sexual interests in a romantic relationship.

Don’t let this issue linger to avoid your spouse from developing sexual interests outside of your marriage.

It’s also important to mention at this point that panic and anxiety will only make things worse.


FINALLY… The 17 Signs Of Walk Away From A Sexless Marriage?

Being in a marriage has its highs and lows and sometimes you can hit a stumbling block such as a sexless marriage. 

A few moments of dryspell can happen and that is not unusual.

What can make it unusual is when that dry spell becomes permanent. 

When intimacy is gone in a marriage, it can gradually lead to the death of a marriage. 

So when do you know you are in a sexless marriage?

One survey says a sexless marriage is when a couple have sex once in a month.

But I believe this varies from people to people.

One Survey  says that 1 in 5 couples are having a sexless marriage. 

Did you know that the average married couple has sex 68.5 times a year which adds up to about once a week?

This is okay if both parties are on the same page.

But problem only occurs if one person desires sex and the other doesn’t. 

So before you decide to walk away, you have to do a root cause analysis that addresses all the variables and scenarios that led you there. 

5 potential causes of a sexless marriage to consider before walking away? 

Consideration #1 – Stress from Work

When a partner gets too busy with work, he or she can become too tired to think about sex.

They don’t even have a moment to eat dinner together, much less talking about their day which is one of the ways that healthy couples connect.

This can cause the couple to be distant and cause a dry spell in the relationship.

Consideration #2 – Childbirth

After Childbirth, a woman’s body changes and needs time to balance again. 

Doctors often advise not to have sex until after 6 weeks because of  common issues such as vaginal dryness, bleeding, pain, fatigue, tear, low libido, pregnancy and more. 

Breastfeeding lowers estrogen levels. 

So if a woman is breastfeeding, it may take time for her libido to return to normal. 

A man who doesn’t know all these may end up acting out of character because he feels neglected. 

And this might lead to even more dry spells; a vicious cycle of sexless weeks, months and potentially years because it all starts from a woman feeling safe with a man .

Consideration #3 – Lack of Connection

Sex without emotional connection is a turn off.  

An emotional connection is a bundle of subjective feelings that come together to create a bond between two people. 

Most women want to be wined and dined, 

They want to be heard, have intelligent and most importantly vulnerable conversations from the heart. They want to be noticed outside the bedroom. 

If she is only being used for sex, she will eventually loathe it. 

Likewise a typical man wants to feel like the hero in his marriage.  

If he is feeling belittled, he may disconnect and his sexual attraction towards his woman can be tampered with effectively.

Consideration #4 – Loneliness

If you are sitting with your spouse and he is not engaging or responding to your conversations, you may start subconsciously learning how to disconnect. 

It may seem like your spouse is just self-absorbed in whatever he is doing without ever asking how your day went; your spouse seems uninterested in you.

You all can become distant and start feeling neglected.  This has led many to start fantasizing about life without each other. 

You may even have found yourself sharing and enjoying conversations with others outside your marriage in an intimate way.

Obviously, one or both of you can effectively get comfortable with the reality of a sexless marriage and it all started with at least one person feeling lonely.

Consideration #5 – Toxic Relationship Issues

If you are not treating each other with kindness, every conversation is filled with sarcastic and rude remarks. 

Likewise if at least one person is exercising controlling behaviours on the other, skyscrapers of resentments will be built. 

And it is also not uncommon to accompany all of that with some disrespect to an extent where your sight repulses your partner or vice versa.

This type of negative behavior kills sex. 

Who wants to have sex with someone who makes their skin crawl?

In Conclusion… 

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS: More Video on our YouTube Channel

Most sexless marriages suffer because one or both parties have shut down and have refused to have real conversations about why they have reached this point. 

They indulge in blaming and finger pointing. 

Blame, guilt, judgement and condemnation, felt at any level will not make your spouse more interested in sex. 

There are things you can do to get your marriage from a sexless stage to one filled with love and content.  

How are you communicating these concerns with your spouse? 

Are you talking to him or at him? Are you talking to her or at her? Try working on your communication skills.

Have you done a root cause analysis of why your marriage is sexless? There are usually some underlying issues. 

You need to be clear of what happened in order to fix it or you will be totally lost in confusion. 

If you are open, a good counselor can help figure that out.

The best thing you can do for yourself is figure out what the underlying cause of your problems are and work with your spouse on finding solutions together.

If this sounds like too much work, there may not be any hope for your marriage at all.

Here’s how to know when it might finally be time to walk away from a sexless marriage:

->You’ve tried everything – counseling, different types of sexual activity that used to turn both of you on but now only one person enjoys or participates in them often

->The two of you talk about having more enjoyable sexual encounters with each other, but after an initial spurt where things were great again they stop once more.

-> You both feel like your sex lives is going down the drains after engaging all the suggested helps in this article, yet passionate sex seems to be long gone.

If at least one person still desires the other enough to initiate sex even if it’s occasionally, there is hope.

We believe that after 3 months of no sexual activity between a couple outside of each other’s consent, the marriage is technically non-existence.

Have you ever heard a sexless marriages end because of more frequent sex? Maybe sex addition which is considered a sexual dysfunction.

You can also work on improving how you approach sex in general; too many people’s approach is anti-seductive.

I know what you are thinking.

What about vaginal dryness right? While that could be a result of medical reasons, it’s often the results of no arousal.

Lack of arousal can also be a function of many things such as low self esteem issues, watching porn too much, body image, lack of self confidence and more.

If you care about this marriage, be sure to address everything before walking away from it like most tend to do.

The grass always seems greener on the other side; but that’s because someone is watering the grass of that love life.
