Okay, this post is actually derived from things going on in my personal life. I am well aware that LPSG is not an appropriate place to get marital advice, but I do value posters on this board. I have observed many of you give really great non-bias bare bones answers.....so please do the same for this thread. For lack of creative energy, I will just post questions: How long have you been married Have you always been faithful to your partner (meaning never showing sexual interest in any form to anyone other than SO) Have you ever had the desire or temptation to stray or play If yes, how did you handle it How do you keep that "spark" alive in your marriage/sex life Do you feel completely fulfilled in your sex life w/ your SO If no, how do you satisfy those things your partner can't or won't satisfy Do you ever wonder if there is someone else out there that is better for you I know many would say that the last question answers itself. If you are truly in love, you don't wonder...you are content. True? Members of this board that 'know' me, know that I'm having some marital trouble. I'm really at a loss for what to do next and aside from an appointment with a marriage counselor on Monday, I have no where else to turn (sad, I know). Oh! Is it possible for two people who love one another deeply to keep a relationship together if they are not on the same "level" - I can explain that further if need be as it is very vauge. Many thanks in advance to anyone who responds.
