Sex life

What are you do whenever you’re living with your boyfriend that you’re supposed to marry but you have no desire to do that anymore. And you have no desire to even have sex with him

@TammyM424848 , I think  @DeahWA has given great advice.  Physiological, psychological, biological, spiritual, financial, aging and relationships can be complex. Before ending a relationship you have invested time in, maybe a physical exam with lab work, along with talking to a counselor/therapist could be helpful. Hope this gives you some clarity.  Take care, Christine

Some medications and hormonal changes of aging can reduce one's libido. Depression and anxiety about aging, finances, family reactions, and commitment can erode a desire to marry. Before ending a relationship, maybe some of these things would bear a bit of examination?  The original post was some months ago. I hope you've found answers since then, @TammyM424848

LOL @RosemaryF433825 this thread title is what they call "click bait."

But I've been surprised by finding fairly detailed even useful, info in AARP articles on sexual functioning and aging. And why not? It's part of life, and we ain't dead yet. LOL
