Hi Ambreka, is it?
Lynn - 55yo - level 4 -
My wife and I have been married 35 years next month, and dated for 4 years through High School, and as someone who's worked 60+ hour weeks for most of our life together, I can sympathize with you "tiredness". However, I personally STILL have a higher sex-drive than my wife, and it has been a point of contention for much of our marriage, until I finally just accepted a sexless marriage. As others have pointed out, this is definitely something you guys need to talk about and decide together if this is going to work for you long term. Inevitably, one of you will be unhappy if you can't, and it may mean an end to your relationship down the road, unless one of you is willing to continue to sacrifice their own desires/needs.
I love my wife, and I accepted long ago that her needs came first, even if I wasn't happy, but not everyone is going to be able live like that for the long term. It may be a difficult conversation, but better to have it now than after having kids or being together for so many years.
Best wishes to you both.
