  • Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today? Maureen McGrath - nursetalk@hotmail.com - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW. She is a Registered Nurse, Sex Educator and author of “Sex & Health". This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    Being with someone that makes you feel alone, is worse than actually being alone.

    I met my first husband aged 38. Our marriage was founded on sincere love and communication. What happened in the bedroom stayed in the bedroom, our intimacy, our love, our pleasures we shared, our secrets, have carried us through to where we are today. Him 75 and me 70, still so much in love,

    You cannot join 2 bodies together when their minds are far apart.

    I wear underpants in the shower because it’s wrong to look down on the unemployed.

    In regards to the part about loneliness: My advice: learn to play a musical instrument, especially guitar or piano. You then always have something fun to do, something you can do by yourself, something fun that will occupy you and keep you from feeling bored or lonely or thinking about any problems you may have. Playing guitar kept me from committing suicide when my wife of 12 years, whom I loved very much, left me for another man.

    Better to be single wishing you were married than married wishing you were single - just my two cents.

    Getting rejected by you wife crushes your self confidence to the point you can stop taking care of yourself. It truly is one of the worst feelings in life.

    There is no more lonely feeling in the world than being needed for what you can provide and being unwanted for who you are.

    I lost my virginity at 18...and I found it again when I got married

    I can't imagine a more torturous existence than being in a marriage with a man I love and he doesn't want me.

    This reminds me of something I read in a Dear Abby column years ago: "It's better to be alone than to wish you were."

    When you get told no enough, you just give up.

    After 39 years of marriage, I find myself to have a strong desire for my wife. I find her far more interesting at 58 than I found her to be at 19 when we first met. At times it is a struggle to connect just due to so many things going on, but it is all about the commitment. As the husband, I cook, clean, shop and take care of the house. The fact that my wife is not exhausted all the time really helps. In the long run it is a partnership with give and take.

    Trust me, this isnt just a mans problem, there are women out there turning purple out of frustration because their men arent interested

    The worst thing is your partner being sick and not coming back to do these things all enjoy so we stay in without.

    I'm happy for my friends that seem to be happily married..I said "happy" but not "envious." Maybe there is somebody for me out there, but at 58, I'm definitely not keeping my hopes up too high.

    Yeah, being married and in a sexless marriage is rough. She doesn't even hug, kiss, or even say she loves me anymore. I'd rather be alone to be honest because then I wouldn't feel trapped. And I know for a fact that once we split up, I will never fall into the marriage trap again. I've learned my lesson big time.
