This link came up on my Facebook newsfeed and reading the top comments were really depressing, just reinforcing that most people have NO IDEA what being in a sexless (much less touch-starved) marriage is truly like.
Here are the top (most liked) comments: (SIGH)
"Wow, this advice was terrible. Her wife isn't a bad person, and she's not ruining the marriage. She's experiencing a normal ebb and flow within her own sexuality. In all of our lives we will have times when we're up for it, and when we're not. It's part of our partnership with our spouses to be there through all of that..."
"The first letter from the guy who isn't getting enough affection and sex is ridiculous. I was taken aback by Prudence's response. I cannot honestly believe that she was advocating for him to leave her because of this. That's ridiculous...."
"Fuck you Prudence. Fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you. 👎👎👎👎👎👎🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕
Sex and touch are not the ultimate barometer of love.
Expecting your partner to fulfill some kind of sex quota for you to feel good about yourself is ALL KIND OF FUCKING WRONG.
