        She didn’t give a shit the first couple times I got her what she wanted she would just give me a little kiss , and after years years and years of doing it she would just throw the stuff on the floor with out looking in the box , and her saying I only hangout with guys because that’s who I get along with the best but that’s what she used to make me jealous!!

            The last story sounds so much like my own parents’ story! My mum ended up kicking my dad out of the house after years of him being emotionally and sometimes physically abusive I believe (I was only 7 at the time so I don’t know for sure, but I bet he was physically abusive to her). Now she’s happily married to my stepdad and my dad has had multiple failed relationships and constantly blames my brother and I for his failed life. I haven’t spoken to him in months and I’m happier for it.

              That last story sounds A LOT like my family, except my biological father is dead (died from prostate cancer) and my stepfather, whom I consider my real father is really awesome. He has done so much for me and my brother 😊

                It’s a general rule that if they cheat WITH you they are more likely to cheat ON you. There are exceptions of course but why risk your heart on someone who’s already proved they are capable of cheating?

                  For me, it was a toxic co dependent relationship she had with her mother. I should have paid attention.

                        My husband is my best friend first and my lover second, meaning that we enjoy sex with each other but our base friendship is the most important thing to us. If we never had sex with each other again we would still be really happy together. Sex for us is icing on the cake but not a necessity. We just love each other’s company and do what we can to support each other. He’s my best friend, my family, and my daughters father ❤️

                            This is why it's so important to break the stigma around asexuality - maybe he felt conflicted at the time or even ashamed, and he couldn't say anything to his partner until it was "too late".

                            It was probably made worse for her b/c he told her after the marriage and after the "mandatory" she was thinking of the kids too, if they got along generally, was it ok for the kids to be separated from the father b/c she wanted a s*xual relationship? (which is what he wanted, to trap her, bastard move). Honestly, the deception, manipulation & letting me feel bad about myself, as long as he was getting what he wanted, would've been things I would not have been able to move past easily, if at all.

                            I agree, some people are fine with not being sexually active. While others need that type of affection in order to feel happy in a relationship.

                            I never understand why women get married and then drop out or quit working. If you want to be a trophy wife then be upfront and honest about that. Don't trick a guy into it. It's messed up.

                              Neither me. If you depend financially of someone you are risking a lot. If he is an asshole or suddenly die, you get into trouble very easily. It's better to keep a work, even if it's a half time work.

                                  That last story are the ones that scare me - the abuser who can hold it in until they slap a ring on it. The ones who fit in perfectly and are amazing partners, while secretly trying to trap you into marriage or having kids because it'll be harder to leave.

                                      True, spending your life with someone is great but I don't think I would want to get officially married, I've seen way to many sticky divorces.

                                    4:20 I facepalmed, dude, DUDE. People have zero self respect, "I wanted to see if my foot fit into it", yes, sure or maybe some dude was pulling it off after the deed and throw it into the trash, what is more likely?
                                    Even when he knew for a fact he was trying to get back together - some people really do it to themselves, if you dont have any respect for yourself, dont expect anyone else have it for you.

                                      8:37 Wanderuststricken, this is called covert incest. There is no actual sexual contact, but there is often sexual innuendo that makes the child uncomfortable, and a demand for a level of emotional intimacy that children aren't equipped to provide, and this does very serious damage to kids that grow up in that environment. Especially boys. They tend to become porn addicted, with deranged fetishes, have low opinions of women (which they hide, since they "love" their mother, so they must inherently respect women... they also think themselves superior to other "bad" men that would harm their mother, and they could never be like those dirty men... although they're much worse indeed). Most importantly, covert incest prevents kids from developing healthy intimate relationships as adults. Your children are not your substitute spouses, and if you demand that they care for your emotional needs, they have no chance to develop nor care for their own. No child should be privy to their parents sexual and/or emotional life. Take it to your friends or therapists. Unless, however, you're a psychopath that genuinely wants to destroy your child's capacity to have a healthy intimate relationship of their own someday. Then, by all means, f*ck them up with your clingy, sexually charged, needy b*llsh*t.

                                        If you are staying in a relationship (especially an abusive one) "for the kids", DON'T! It is not worth it and the kids know everything going on. I remember when I found out my parents were getting divorced.
                                        My older sis, brother and I were walking home from the bus stop when my sis said "oh, and by the way, mom and dad are getting divorced", without even thinking about it I said "finally"!

                                        Oh, and don't say you were willing to stay in an abusive relationship for the kids. They will think it is their fault that the abuse was happening!

                                          I had the same red flag in my most recent relationship as the story at 6:19. In my case however, I did break it off. We never had sex in a 15 month relationship and I'm not going to masturbate solo for the rest of my life. Not having kids made it easier to leave, but yeah, I felt guilty and shallow.

                                                  Observe how his/her interactions with close family are. Especially in his/hers parents house, that is pretty much how, in time, they will interact with you when they become "king/queen of the castle".

                                                    @Sakura Ashita I agree completely. I'm not close with my parents at all, constant arguments, I never tell them anything, never want to be around them. Yet with my boyfriend I'm completely open and wanna be with him whenever I can. I go above and beyond for him. My parents were not great to me growing up... to spare the details lol

It was a fucked up situation. But I’m glad I’m out :) dodged a huge bullet there :)

                                                    Not necessarily. I have pretty bad relationships with both parents but it's because both are controlling and at least one has known mental health issues and I think the other probably does too. Like I'm not saying I'm a saint, but there's a difference between being a generally shitty person and one who is unwilling to take abuse. A lot of people are in the latter position and it can be hard to tell if you aren't there all the time.

                                                  For the lady who is married to the man who has no interest in sex, unfortunately there is no name on the post. My husband is exactly the same. He was into sex when we first met but it soon fizzled out after we were married. I asked him why this happened and he said that he loved me and knew that what what I wanted so he did it, but he really didn't have a great interest that. It caused a lot of arguments and unfortunately I did end up cheating and got found out. He forgave me and we worked through it. He has turned out to be the most wonderful man any woman could ask for. I know that when he wakes up in the morning, his first thought is, "how can I make her happy today?" His entire life is centred around giving me everything I want. We have now been married for 35 years and a funny thing has happened. About 6 years ago, I noticed that he was initiating more. It's now got to the stage where we are having sex probably 3 or 4 times a week. Not bad considerering there were times when we were having sex 3 or 4 times a year. But if something happened, and he went back to how he was, I wouldn't mind. He had given me the most wonderful life.

                                                          Some people just don't want sex, and it only reflects poorly on your desirability if you're a jerk who tries to pressure then into sex anyway. Asexual people exist.

                                                            Kids, if you think your parents are staying married for you and it's a bad situation, say something. My mom stayed with my dad for way too long. At 12 years old, from the backseat of my Aunts car with my mom, we went cruising the bar parking lots looking for my mom's car. From the backseat I said, "hey mom, maybe it's time for a D-I-V-O-R-C-E." She filed that week I think. Some moms really just need to know the kids are on board with it. My mother has told me that she has met quite few other women who left at the suggestion of the kids.

She doesn’t think she has anywhere to go if she left (I’m sure friends would be more than willing to help out) and uses the family dogs as her excuse. I just randomly shout divorce at her now whenever she complains to me about dad. We’ve discussed it so many times, and she regrets not leaving earlier, but it seems she’d rather be miserable with him than alone without him. At least it’s a great example for a type of relationship I should avoid at all costs.

You just talk down to people, deny explanations and yet you talk about ignorance. YOU are one of those people who make it even worse for the small community of people with sexual orientation which differ from the majority. People grow tired of exactly this behavior: wanting sympathy but talking down on people. Tell me how do you think this will every be understood by society when people like you are just a jerk about it to people who try to understand. Just because I criticize your opinion doesn't mean I don't try to understand you. Quite the opposite: I call out logic flaws (which doesn't make sense to me) so I can understand the topic. You can't understand things which don't make sense for yourself. So, you can just shut down and hope for society to change while actively working against it and harming the public perception of those communities or you can actually take part in discussions about it and show the people why common perceptions are wrong or why normal logic can't be applied. Like I said, I'm still waiting for any answer to my questions / points. Instead you talk down to people calling them ignorant. You should reflect on your own actions and think about who is acting ignorant here.

                                                              I, myself, wouldn't even care about the s*x part in a situation like this, I'd be fixating on the hiding & lying, the manipulation, the not caring about me (and the kids) and not respecting me enough to tell me smth. that affects my entire would destroy anything I felt for that person.

                                                              There are ppl out there that have low s*x drive or that don't feel s*x is an important part of a marriage and are looking more for a best friend or ppl that thought this was important, but faced w/ the decision of leaving a person they love b/c of it, they change their mind or are willing to compromise in some way...the way you say as*xuals would have s*x for their partners b/c they are in love, there could be partners that would forgo s*x or have it very sparingly or willing to discuss some kind of another arrangement b/c they are in love...but they need to be given a choice when it's the rest of their lives in question.

                                                              ​@AangelKataang To whom do you answer? It seems like you cherry picking some points from all the answers you got. Life is never easy (for most people). Many people have different hardships yet you pretend there is absolutely no possible positive outcome for this specific scenario. You don't chose who you fall in love with, true. But you can search for the people you prefer (so you get a perfect match) or you talk to a possible non-asexual partner if he/she is okay with it and what that means for the future. If he/she is okay with it than all is good if not he/she wasn't the right for you. Problem solved. It no different than looking for partners based on other criteria. But lying about it is selfish. It seems like you didn't get this point: I judge the people who lie because a relationship build on lies is destined to fail and there is a solution (as I outlined above), so please don't say it hard and therefore can't be done.

I took a nap, woke up to soooo many missed calls and texts accusing me of cheating because he got jealous that a male friend from high school commented on a FB post, where he got into a huge verbal fight with same friend via messenger. We ended up getting back together, got married, had a child, have now been separated for 8 years because he refuses to sign the papers after having many MANY false police charges filed against me and having the living shit beaten out of me on multiple occasions. So now I need to save to hire a new attorney to file a contested divorce that he can't fight.

Asexual people deserve love and a fully functional and healthy relationship. It isn't always about sex, and the construct of sex being mandatory in a relationship is so wrong and sad that it leaves people with the feeling of not being enough for somebody and being broken. This system is broken, so we should help fix it

He told me thats great, but "if they cheat with you, they will cheat on you"
