She drank too much, and then the anger came. We need help, but I’m not sure where to go next. I know all the things we’ve been learning are helping me.
Why are these men who are often considered trusted leaders in their community and those we consider society’s finest finding it so difficult to experience the deep, emotionally-connected, intimate, and passionate marriages they yearn for?
As mentors speaking to hundreds of such men and helping many of them overcome the challenges of a sexless marriage, we’ve identified many patterns among the men who are experiencing a sex-starved relationship that is low on intimacy and high on frustration and emotional pain.
