I’ve been married for over a decade with a great man. We are compatible and have deep respect for each other. We are affectionate but our marriage is practically sexless—I haven’t been attracted to him for the last five years. We’ve gone through 3 rounds of therapy already. He is really a great person and I feel that people would be envious of our lives if they didn’t open the hood. What should I do?
