No intimacy in marriage like this is a frustrating, humiliating and depressing thing for wives who crave the connection that comes with physical intimacy and the problems it can cause emotionally can be dire.

With this in mind the first relationship advice for women stuck in a sexless marriage is to not do what many other have done and blame themselves and their body as being the source of the problem. While it may be an obvious connection that physical attraction is the cause of physical rejection this is not really case, even men with their reputation for being on a one track mind about sex have an underlying emotional core that sex is the connection to and losing that connection is because of relationship issues and problems in their own life they cannot come to grips with not that you may have put on an extra pound a mans mind does not work that way no matter how much sitcoms might brand men as being superficial.
