Me and my partner been together several years now. We're married. Live together. Have a baby together almost 1 year old.
I finally bit the bullet and told him something happened that we wouldn't be sexually compatible anymore. I didn't want, didn't choose it, but I couldn't just pretend it wasn't happening anymore.
He said he already suspected, but had decided to stay in the relationship if I was okay with not having sex in it, because we're still married and love each other. I said I was, but wasn't sure how long we could do that for. He agreed it couldn't last forever, but that we could make it last for a while longer anyway.
I didn't expect that response. I was kinda scared he'd just end it as soon as he knew it would likely have to end eventually—apparently he was scared I'd do the same. What would you have done in that kind of situation?
