My husband literally acted like it was no big deal, and after a while I just gave up and pretended like I didnt care either. All that did though is make it worse, and we ended up going 8 months without sex. I didn’t want to be naked in front of him either because it embarassed me. I wasn’t used to being naked with him anymore. I was in terrible pain everyday, all day long and only felt better temporarily while hopped up on painkillers or asleep. It really freaked my husband out, because we do love each other. The whole experience and recovery made us closer, and when I felt better we started having sex again.

I agree with Awakeing – I don’t think this is a relationship with long term possibilities for him, or it is just too soon for him. I cannot believe a child saying that is actually seen as disrespectful, sorry. First, it is the truth; second, what is he supposed to do – gush over this man “are you gonna be my new daddy” – would everyone think this is cute, because I would worry about this child then having such a fantasy blown up, and be hurt, possibly unable to bond to a new man in your life in the future; and third, I would expect more understanding from a man who I hoped would be a parent to my child in the future.

A man being with her sexually or emotionally? Are you actively pursuing sex with her or is this relationship more organic – just spending time together because you both enjoy each others company?
