Making wife feel guilty?
My wife and I have been married for 8 years. The intimacy has dropped off considerably, down to once a month on average (for the past 3-4 years). She has anxiety so I do the cooking, cleaning, wash, and other housework in order to lessen her anxiety and worries associated with work. I thought that perhaps lessening her worries would benefit our sex life. She is grateful and always says I am the best husband.
Oddly, as this has occurred, sex and intimacy have declined significantly. I have brought my concerns to her before (maybe once a year) and her behavior might change for a few days but she falls back into a rut. She never starts sex-related conversations so I started one about 6 months ago. She exploded and told me that I only bring up sex to her in order to make her feel guilty. That blew me away and hurt me tremendously. Needless to say, I have not mentioned sex once since then but I still suffer (inside). Any thoughts on the guilt comment?
