Sexless Marriages


Are you or your partner just not "in the mood" for sex on a regular basis? Sexless marriages are an undeniable epidemic, says Dr. Phil. And since sex and intimacy are a meaningful part of a relationship, loss of sexual desire can severely affect a marriage.

  • Lack of energy, fatigue
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Lack of respect or trust in a relationship
  • Jealousy, resentment
  • Loss of self-esteem
