My name is Moses, a 36-year-old man living with my family in Lagos. I have a problem and I hope other readers will help me out with very good advice before I take the wrong step.
I have been married to Samantha for six years now and we have a lovely kid to show for it. But our marriage has been experiencing serious hiccups and with the look of things, we may have to go our separate ways.
My wife has been starving me of sex for the past two years and it is getting so frustrating that I don’t know how long I can cope with the situation.
Before we got married, Samantha and I had a great sex life as we made love on a regular basis. In fact, we got married when she took in and even after she gave birth, the sexual urge did not reduce until three years ago when I noticed a serious decline in our sex life.
It happened gradually that I did not notice the change in Samantha until it got out of hand. It began when she began to skip having sex regularly, often coming up with one excuse or the other.
It started with the standard excuse of having a headache, being tired, having too many things to do, balancing her work and taking care of the baby, observing a fast and prayers, and all sorts of mundane excuses.
Before the sudden change, we made love between three to four times a week but when the excuses started coming, I would be lucky if I got it twice or even once a week.
Then it reduced to once in two weeks, then once a month, to once in two or three months. Gradually, the situation deteriorated to the extent that we could go six months without sex and anytime I tried to have sex with my wife, she would put up a stiff resistance and since I would not want to be accused of raping my wife, I would let her be.
In the past three years, I can count how many times I have slept with my wife on the fingers of one hand. And the funny thing is that she does not see anything wrong with that. Whenever I complain, she would tell me that sex is not food and as far as she was concerned, she was done with sex.
I had vowed never to cheat on my wife but with the way things go, I think I will have to go back on my words. I love my wife and would want to stay in my marriage but I can say that once I start sleeping with another woman, I will have no option but to divorce Samantha.
Please, I need advice from other readers.
