Sexless Marriage and How Couples Therapy Helps

“Sexless marriage” and “dead bedroom” are two of the most searched phrases when it comes to marriage counseling and couples therapy. If you and your partner are struggling to make sex a consistent part of your relationship, you’re not alone. There is no “one” definition of what a normal sex life should look like. Every couple’s sexual relationship has its own uniqueness, strengths, and challenges. The real problem is we’re often hesitant to talk about it with each other, and when we do, we only focus on the problems.

This can be because of trauma, expectations, self-doubt, certain medications, resentment—any number of factors can contribute to couples withdrawing from each other sexually. It may be both partners that are distanced, or may be only one.

We often find that couples need a solid foundation of trust and emotional safety to even begin talking about the deeper layers of their distance. That’s why we’re here to help.

Sex Talk for Couples

Couples who live with the highest level of marital and relationship satisfaction have usually learned to communicate openly and have found ways to appreciate their partner’s strengths and differences. This conversation can also include gender roles and sexual understanding. A Well Marriage Center licensed professional therapist is trained to help couples navigate and understand these important dynamics and negotiations. The good news is an understanding of your relationship’s sexuality (both yourself and your partner) can foster a vibrant sex life and a thriving marriage!
