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?”
