Marissa O’Rourke Professor Misiurski General Psychology 2 December 2012 Dr. Scott advice page Problem: on the other side of the fence... by kingston7 » Thu Dec 10, 2009 3:47 pm My husband and I have been married for TWO months. We love each other very much and we are both very understanding about what each of our roles entail in our marriage. We have four children 7, 5, 3, and 7 mo. He is 27 and I am 28. I was a single mom of three when we met a year and a half ago, and we had our recent addition together. Being newly weds, I was under the immpression we would have lots of really good sex. After constant rejection from him, I asked if they're is something wrong with our sex life (or lack their of) that is causing a problem, and I just kept getting the typical I'm tired...etc. We only have sex once a week if that...So one night over cassual cocktails, he finally blurted out I do not physically turn him on. Very pleased my husband was honest about his feelings I told him I suspected that to be tha issue (he is a personal trainer and is very phisically fit and very handsome). I told him I understand and that I would try to loose some weight, (by the way I am not even that big I am a size 8 or 10 and I'm 5'9 JUST had baby and mom of four!) Sooo now I know why our sex life has been totally none existant, I feel so much pressure now to not only be wife and mom but now loose 20 lbs or so. What I now struggle with is knowing how he sees me now. I feel HUGE and like he is not attracted to me at all! I feel ugly and rejected, he doesn't even take an interest in me wanting to try new things and when we do have sex it's like he does it out of a physical need only. I cook, I keep a clean house and I tell him all the time how much I want do I turn him on if I don't turn him??? I just want to be wanted like any wife or woman and even though I am taking steps to loose weight it still takes time, I just want him to tell me he wants me and thinks I am beautiful. How do I handle this with out him resenting the fact he was honest with me? Besides, I will never be a stay at home mom and the porn star he wants me to be, he so overly critical I have a hard time staying motivated to even try to innitiate sex. So tired of rejection...really needing some insight!!! Answer: So you feel as though your husband finds you unattractive, especially after just having a baby. You feel like he is not attracted to you, and you feel as though you have gained weight. Because your husband is a personal trainer, you feel pressure to be more physically fit in order for him to be sexually attracted enough to sleep together more than once a week. After doing everything all day for him, including cooking and cleaning, at the end of the day you are feeling frustrated and sexually deprived. Unfortunately, this is actually common in today’s society. According to Dr. Scott Haltzman,
