My wife has denied me sex completely. And her mother is siding with her telling me to give her more time. I have tried my very best to love my wife and provide to our family. But I’m feeling frustrated and tempted to cheat. We were very romantic in our first six months of marriage then things changed.
Answer to your problem
If she has no medical grounds for denying you sex, you have every right to divorce her. Infidelity is not just extra-marital affairs but also denial of sexual intimacy. Conjugal rights are a requirement of marriage by law – both on earth and in heaven.
1 Corinthians 7:3-4 – The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife.
I don’t know what you are going to do – that’s your choice. But if she was my wife, I’d make it clear that if she’s not interested in sex, I’ll divorce her with immediate effect so that she can live as she desires. One can’t have their cake and eat it at the same time. If she desires marriage status, it comes along with certain duties.
If you cheat, you’ll fall into her trap – she’ll now have a perfect excuse for withdrawing sexually. Either fix your sex life or part ways. Don’t consult her mother anymore – she’s clearly ignorant of the role of sex for quality marriage.
