Just sex

by Anonymous
(Michigan)

So my husband and i have been married 7 years together for 12 and have 2 kids together.... Now anyone with kids (especially younger ones) know finding the time for sex and being in the mood is hard.. But my husband if he goes longer than 2-3 days without getting laid he starts getting mad and finding reasons to pick a fight with me then i have to have sex with him in order for the fight to stop... But when it comes to me wanting him to spend time with me, in a non sexual way whether its snuggling and watching a movie or playing cards or ANYTHING i will take any kind of attention that's not sex once in awhile he just never has the time hes either always on the phone or having people over or going to peoples house to hang out..something its always something... Now i can get him to lay with me and watch a movie but it lasts all of 10 min before he's trying to get in my pants and have sex..... What does this say about how he feels about me or am i just reading too far into something???

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
