Sadly, this reminds me of my own nineteen-year marriage. I would say, “We haven’t had sex in three weeks,” and then he’d say, “Let’s do it.” I would say, “We haven’t had sex in three months,” and he’d say “Let’s do it.” I didn’t want to DO it at that moment. I wanted to talk about WHY we weren’t DOING it.

Here is an excerpt from a play I wrote:

“He just gets into bed, turns off the light and rolls over on his side. I’ve tried bringing it up, but it gets more and more difficult. If I ask him what’s wrong… Well, it’s either that he has a headache or he’s too tired or it’s too hot. How can you be hot with central air?”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
