No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark

Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today?

    I’m going through this right now in my relationship I feel worthless unattractive and lonely. Unloved rejection hurts really bad so you just give up trying

    Why is there so much shame and embarrassment even in today’s day and age?It is a natural part of a healthy relationship. The sadness is when people are too embarrassed to admit or ask for the help they need.If they did they would realise they are not only not alone but that 98% of the population are pretending everything is great when it isn’t!

    I’m a 25 year old dude who wonders daily about the reason for marriage when it has such terrible PR. Almost everyone married makes it seem as though they’re trapped in this prison, that they ‘had to’ do it for some reason… Nobody ever says "marriage is amazing, I highly recommend". It’s more of a "Kid, one day you’ll be married and you’ll suffer like we do."
    I don’t know if I’m up for it.

    “MOST” women today don’t want to contribute to the bills, don’t want to lift a finger helping with chores/groceries/kids, and want their husband to make more than they do. It’s true.

    Marriage is the chief cause of divorce.

    Just a bunch of rambling .

    Who is this Lady? Right about so much. Including the part about ED due to a weak heart.

  16. Deckie Deckie on June 23, 2021 at 1:48 am

    99% of the world lie about almost everything!!……Is the lie, not the truth what rules…..

    I have been married for 51 years.
    I have learned three things to say for a successful marriage. They are:
    1) I am sorry.
    2) Please forgive me.
    3) I won’t do it again.

  18. Atomspalter on June 23, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Ok

  19. Chiara Concetti on June 23, 2021 at 1:54 am

    That was stunning, and expressed something I felt and I was not be able to say. Now I have that words, and feelings have their own names.

  20. Susie Gingerich on June 23, 2021 at 1:55 am

    I’m a single gal and on Tinder. I’ve seen so many married men on there and their profiles pretty much say the same thing….I’m in an empty marriage, not looking to leave it, just to get laid. I’m assuming they like their partners and maybe even love them… just not getting any. Is it financial reasons they stay? The kids?

  21. Elessar Telcontar on June 23, 2021 at 1:58 am

    I was married for 28 years and those were four of the best years of my life!

  22. dee orr on June 23, 2021 at 2:02 am

    I was married three times and all my wives have died. Two from eating poison mushrooms and the last one from head trauma. She wouldn’t eat her mushrooms.

    It’s men who want there cake and eat it that are the slime balls!

    Before this video I thought in Ted, even great speakers don’t get a single response for their jokes, but now I realize that they were just speaking the wrong topic

    This has been my life for the last 25 years. Wish I would have left 24 years ago.

  27. Nik Morales on June 23, 2021 at 2:04 am

    You marriage may be sexless for you, but not the other person. Always tired or not feeling it? Always on the phone? Even worse, smiling when on the phone. Connect the dots

  28. Teut Hamer on June 23, 2021 at 2:07 am

    She told me all about it, wizard. Right before she gave me her phone number. And you know I hate fibbing. 🤔

    These type of idiots are destroying and poisoning a mutual lovable relation between couples

    17:09 What is she talking about? People know that women also cheat, it just doesn’t seem to be pointed out as much.

  33. D M on June 23, 2021 at 2:15 am

    It’s pretty simple. You let yourself go in a marriage you lose attraction to one another. You should want to be the best version of yourself for your spouse. Sorry, but 100 lbs overweight isn’t your best version. Respect your spouse by respecting yourself.

    Is not healthy to be alone we where not meant to be alone we are made to be compatible with one and other

  37. Susie Gingerich on June 23, 2021 at 2:18 am

    27 million views….this is obviously a relatable topic:(

  38. Red Dwarf on June 23, 2021 at 2:18 am

    She’s out of touch. Lots of women today are lazy and men are stuck doing everything with wives who think lifting a single finger ever is somehow bad. Her views are old fashioned. Look at her age and style.

  39. jay morris on June 23, 2021 at 2:18 am

    Brilliant, but unless I’m wrong, men hardly want to "make love" I think that’s for story books, our animal instincts, well. Just as that implies, Turn is into animals. I could be wrong, I’d love to know how to keep the PEA though.

  40. October on June 23, 2021 at 2:19 am

    The problem is feminism
    Women don’t hold their duty to their men
    And men are becoming very feminine

  41. Red Dwarf on June 23, 2021 at 2:20 am

    When people get married they forget staying lovers is important. They become friends. They don’t make time for themselves away from the kids and work. You can’t be married to your friend. Men and women start to let themselves go, stop trying to seduce each other, and just hang out. You MUST always treat your wife like a girlfriend, not a friend. Women must ALWAYS treat men like your in a date.

  42. daddyteddy85 on June 23, 2021 at 2:22 am

    She is right..A lot of men are going through this but we cant talk about it..If we do then something is wrong with the man

    Men are suffering in painful silence

  43. Kyra Tompsett on June 23, 2021 at 2:24 am

    This is really painful to listen to. If you’re unhappy, take some initiative and do something about it. Everyone here in the comments complaining about how lonely they are in their marriage are just not willing to do the work to fix things, whatever that means for the situation. Sounds like most of you shouldn’t be married

  44. John Smith on June 23, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Stop nagging men and actually act feminine. Men don’t want a boss or competitor at home.

  45. John Smith on June 23, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Women don’t know how to be a wife.

  47. Dennis Challinor on June 23, 2021 at 2:27 am

    It’s a good thing the "men" didn’t know Dorothy Evelyn Challinor: they would be told practice makes perfect!

  48. Jay S on June 23, 2021 at 2:27 am

    Was this suppose to be a comedy show or?

  49. Dr. Robert Neville on June 23, 2021 at 2:27 am

    It’s difficult when married but separated but I was taught touching yourself was better than cheating in a hard situation alone
