Why Marriages Are Becoming Sexless?


It was a typical Friday evening when Rachel and Gbenga sat down on their couch after a long and stressful week at work. Rachel had been looking forward to this night all week, as it was their weekly date night. They had planned to watch a movie, have some dinner, and then spend the rest of the night in bed. But as the night progressed, Rachel began to feel increasingly frustrated.

Gbenga wasn’t responding to her advances, and he seemed distant and uninterested. It wasn’t the first time this had happened, but it was becoming more and more frequent. Rachel couldn’t help but wonder what was causing this shift in their relationship. Over the past few months, she had noticed that their sex life had dwindled to almost nothing. They used to have a healthy and active intimacy, but now it seemed like a distant memory. Rachel couldn’t help but wonder if this was the end of their relationship. That’s when she discovered Talk Space online therapy and signed up immediately.

Abdullahi and Habibat, a couple in their mid-30s entered the door of Talk Space Counseling Services with heavy hearts. They had been married for almost 10 years, but recently they felt like their relationship was stuck in a rut. What used to be a passionate and intimate union had gradually turned into a sexless marriage. Abdullahi and Habibat tried to talk about their problems, but every discussion ended up in a heated argument. They didn’t know what to do, so they turned to Talk Space Counseling Services for help.

Once upon a time, marriage was the ultimate symbol of love and commitment. Couples would pledge their lives to each other, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do they part. However, in recent years, the sanctity of marriage seems to have lost its spark. More and more couples are struggling to keep their passion alive, and a rising number of marriages are becoming sexless. It’s a heartbreaking reality that affects millions of people around the world. The reasons behind this alarming trend are many, but the consequences are severe.

One of the most apparent reasons behind the rise of failed and sexless marriages is the fast-paced, hectic lifestyle that most couples lead. Many people put their jobs and professional commitments above their personal life, leading to a lack of intimacy and connection between partners. Moreover, the advent of technology and social media has instigated an addiction in individuals that often leads to them neglecting their relationship with their spouse. Additionally, the skyrocketing levels of stress and anxiety have also led to decreased sexual desire among couples.

Another significant cause of sexless marriages is unresolved conflicts and misunderstandings between partners. Arguments, differences in opinion, resentment, or any other negative emotions can create an environment of discomfort, ultimately leading to a decrease in sexual intimacy between partners. Furthermore, mundane duties such as household chores, financial responsibilities, or caring for children can also cause a lack of sexual desire among partners, leading to a sexless marriage.
