In today’s episode of “husbands who can’t think for their wives,” we have a story about a man who’s upset at his wife for not wanting to be physical with him because she feels tired and doesn’t feel like it.
This story comes from an fantastic piece written by Alyssa Shelasky of The Cut – where three husbands discuss their stories. Out of all of those three stories, this one resonates loud enough to stand out.
They had a baby three years ago where his wife had a C-section, and after that, she just doesn’t want to be intimate or physical as much as she used to before. This anonymous husband told The Cut:
“My wife had a baby three years ago. Before the baby, we had $ex a few time a week…”
“Having $ex just takes the sting out of everyday life. Having $ex helps you get through all the bullshit that is being a parent in New York. I’d really like to have more $ex. My wife had a C-section, so there’s really no physical issue with her body. She’s just tired all the time. I’m tired too but never too tired to have $ex. I’ve tried to bring it up a few times and she’s basically like, ‘F*** you, shut up.’ Which I respect … but … I feel a little stuck in a situation that doesn’t seem to be getting better. I’m not sure what to do about it.”

We think the husband of this story needs to give less importance to this one part of his life that he’s made so very vital. He doesn’t care for his wife’s physical or emotional wellbeing and just wants to get it on, regardless of the mood or conditions.
We understand that intimacy is an important part of every healthy relationship, but emotions are more important.
