I know you are mad at me because I have been refusing to have sex with you lately. And I also have not approached you for sex, even though you have hinted that I should do so. The problem is, I’m very annoyed with you at the moment. Maybe after reading this letter you will understand my feelings and change your behavior. Then maybe we can have sex again.
I guess the final straw came when I was working at the fish fry at church and cut my finger. When I called to tell you I thought I needed to go to the hospital, the first thing you asked was whether the church had workers1 compensation. You said if they didn’t, I shouldn’t go to the hospital because it would be too expensive. What I needed at that moment was for you to ask me about my finger.
When I found out that the church had insurance, I called you back to take me to the hospital. You said you couldn’t get away. You had too much work to do. So a friend took me to the emergency room.
When I got back, I called to let you know how I was doing. Your secretary said that you were out to lunch.
Bob, why would I want to have sex with you when you act as though I don’t count?
And now that I am on a roll with this letter, here are some other reasons that I justify turning you down.
You drive too fast and when I ask you to slow down, you drive even faster.
We never go out alone as a couple.
If you don’t get your way, you let everyone know by pouting and refusing to talk.
You are not affectionate outside the bedroom.
You tell me I’m spoiled because I work only part-time.
You put me down in front of other people.
You chew with your mouth open, you are overweight, and you drink too much.
You do not help me with the children or help around the house.
You call me names, even right after we have had sex.
You expect a big meal every night no matter how tired I am.
You refuse to go to the children’s school functions.
You do not pick up your clothes, bath towel, or dishes, or clean out the tub when you have finished using it.
You are friendly and outgoing, and nice to everyone but me and your children.
I have always liked sex. It’s a way for me to feel close to you. But lately I don’t feel very close. Please change your behaviors so we can get our sex life back on track.
