Less Time In Bed Since We've Wed

Less Time In Bed Since We've Wed

Dear Sugar
My husband and I had a great sex life before we were married 2 years ago, but since then, the sex we used to have almost every day has dwindled to maybe once a week. I guess I somewhat expected this, but never really thought we'd lose our mojo. Now we're talking about starting a family. I know once a baby comes into the mix, we'll probably have sex even less often! How sad - I really want a baby, but I don't want to lose the connection I've got with my husband. Any thoughts on this?

Dear Married Mollie
Just so you know, this problem is more common than not for newly married couples. It's very natural to encounter sexual cycles. Usually before marriage sex is at a peak. Once you settle into everyday life it tends to lessen in frequency. Luckily, it's very likely that it will pick up again. I suggest talking to your husband about it once. Express your feelings and also tell him how attracted you still are to him and that you miss having regular sex. Once he understands you - stop talking about it. Nothing will kill sex more than a nervous guy (that's a whole other topic).
