We have been married for 10 years and have 2 kids but pretty much have a sexless marriage (over 5 years) due to wife's lack of willingness and ability to be vulnerable and intimate. Besides physical relationship, the lack of intimacy shows up in an avoidant behavior from wife when it comes to communication. As such, she is a wonderful person and dotting mother. I have gone to therapist on my own but wife doesn't go and is quiet on requests for marriage counseling. What can be done?

Alan,

 

It might be best to not force her go into counseling as she might have her own reasons and problems. As her husband, try to figure things out between you two and what you think is hindering her from being intimate to you or having the feeling of vulnerability. You already have 2 kids and that's the only proof that your marriage is working fine as you were able to recreate as a family. Talk to her and listen to her woes, concerns or worries as she might be experiencing something like that. Give her assurance and security that no matter what, you will always stay beside her and you're willing to support in everything she do. Whenever you feel she's ready again, make her feel special just like the very first night you were together and for sure she'll get that excitement and will be able to catch up with you physically and emotionally.
