A happy relationship is something we all crave for and rightly so; all of us naturally want to be loved, nurtured and love and nurture back. Any relationship, be it a parent-child one, a friendship or a marital one, involves two separate people coming together…separate people with separate ideas, ideologies and needs. A marriage too, is no different. Sustaining and nurturing a marital relationship demands that you are attuned to both yourself and your partner, that you be compassionate towards both yourself and him/her. Some of you in your relationships may be in a situation where one partner wants or wishes for sex much lesser than the other partner. Sex is a basic biological need. Having differences in sex drive is natural; yet, it can lead to relationship problems between the couple. This definitely is a situation that as psychologists, we would urge you to work upon. We understand that sex is a powerful and pleasurable need; however, we would like to reach out to those of you who are dealing with sexual issues in your marriages/relationships. We’ve written an article that extensively describes low sexual desire or lack of sexual desire– what contributes to it and what one can do about it. Here’s hoping the article helps make some difference to you and your relationship. Click the link below to read the article:
