This woman doesn't want to have sex with her husband for the next four years.

Carrie Jones hasn't had sex with her husband Hal, a City banker, for the past four years. Nor does she want to. Sex is something she can no longer summon the effort to endure - with the man she married, at least.
She admits she stays in her sexless relationship for the sake of her children, aged nine and 11, and will remain celibate until the day they are grown up and she feels able to leave. At which point, she confesses, she will probably abandon her husband and begin a sexual odyssey to find the satisfaction that eludes her.

An unusual case? A sorry lack of libido? She insists not. "If I thought I was unique in my sexual disappointment I'd probably be suicidal," muses Carrie, 45, a publishing executive, who lives in North London with Hal and their children. » Read the full article here

I can totally understand how having kids can kill the mood and all, but having sex with your spouse and enjoying the hell out of it isn't going to make their home life "unstable". Sneak off to a hotel for a few hours, or something.

The only thing I can imagine about this couple is that, somehow, they're "both" doing it wrong. Neither of them is actually interested in each other, anyway. If either of them was interested, they'd find a way.

I know that "sex" isn't the meaning of life (or is it?), but at the very least, it's a big part. Raising kids in a marriage where the parents show no emotion to each other just teaches them that it's okay to live a big lie. Poor kids.

Yeah, part of me just wonders if there are other things going on that is the real reason why they don't have to have sex.
