Dealing With a Sexless Marriage

Expert Tips

Experts said couples should be realistic. You might not get back to those hot and heavy, seeing-fireworks days at the beginning of your relationship, but together you can create something that satisfies you both.

You're both different people than you were back then, emotionally, physically. Try to get real about what you both really want and be sure to talk about it together.

Also, start dating again. Making special time to reignite your emotional intimacy can get the sparks flying. Take a cooking class together, find a new interest that you can share that requires couple time so you can reconnect.

Plus, put sex on the schedule. When you've had the talk and have come to an agreement about what you both hope for from your sex life, make time for it.

It doesn't always have to be sex, but it should be time to be intimate together. It can be just private, alone time together.
