Just found this forum this morning. Found it incredibly illuminating. Brief history of what has brought me here. I've been married for 42 years, I'm 61, W is 63. While not a sexless marriage by the common definition, it is nowhere near what I desire or has been in the past.We separated for five years early in our marriage over the lack of intimacy,reconciled.Intimacy and sex life was great for roughly 1-2 years and has gotten progressively worse since. Many fights over the years over this, am currently in a place of it not worth fighting over anymore. I am currently being treated for depression in large part due to this. W knows this is why, and is bothered by it, but apparently not enough to do anything to help other than encourage therapy. Current frequency is once a week if I push for it, has been up to a month w/o if not. I usually initiate once a week, just to keep her from being suspicious of my having an affair,(have that in our history as part of the separation) but find it increasingly difficult to care. Looking forward to making friends here and working things in my marriage through to a solution I can live with. Leaving isn't an option to me morally, but roommate status has certainly been considered. Any way looking forward to interacting here with others.

jetcity: Had to have my cat put down today. He was very old and he let us know it was time this morning. My wife went to visit her mother today So now It’s just me, the cats and dog and a couple cold beers. Now that’s a party right?

caballotierra: Hey all, I setup a new account since my W figured out my login and was using my posts against me. Since we're going through divorce, I thought it would be safer to remove my old name. Although I feel attached to it.

caballotierra: Does anyone know how to delete my old account? Right now, it's still searchable, which is a problem.
