My marriage is kind of 'on the rocks', crumbling around me.

Did you read the bit where 'baby' is now 6 years old and OP's been getting nothing (except the bills) for most of that time?

Because it's not mentioned in this thread.... but is mentioned in the test under the picture.

My stance doesn't change. The OP should stay strong and calm and reasonable and fair.

There's no reason not to bang her when the kid's asleep.

That's Thai culture, absolutely no clash.

 

I've been here nearly 12 years, longest I've gone without sex (with a woman in the room), maybe 4 days.

'nearly 12 years' 

'maybe 4 days'

Wow. Do you realise how bad you sound here? 

 

 

But it's true, what he said. Do you think it's a coincidence, that all the self proclaimed "good guys" hardly get laid, often end up friendzoned, and crying themselves to sleep when the girl he's into tells him of her newest "bad boy"?

I'm not saying treat them like <deleted>, but if you worship them, do everything for them, and accept their blatant disrespect, then you're gonna get cucked, hurt, etc. It is what it is. And no amount of leftist mimimimi and reeeeeeeeeeeee over how "misogynistic" and "sexist" that is, is going to change that.

 

I'm not (and neither is he) saying rape them either. BTW you should go talk to some women, and ask them "Would you accept it, if your boyfriend/husband told you 'no' when you want sex", and see what they say.. you'd be surprised, considering your response...

Probably too late for this but a change of environment might patch things up a bit. Not the best of timing but get in the car together and take a short two day road trip. Stay in a nice hotel somewhere, share a bottle of wine together and eat a nice takeaway if you cant eat out.( leave the child with relatives )

 

Wife and I luv each other , no problems but the routine just gets a bit dull sometimes. Whenever we go away somewhere , she de stresses from looking after her elderly mother and its back to horizontal activities , fine dining and a bottle of the red stuff in the hotel room.  Does us both the world of good to get away and do something different.

I haven't read all the replies yet, only your first post.

 

I am probably not the first to say this, and I am really not trying to be a sphincter or put you down, or anything, but please... hear me...

 

If she's still somewhat young and in her sexual prime (which for most women is in their 30s, actually, in terms of increased sex drive and such), then she's getting it elsewhere most likely. And she probably is still relatively young, with a 6 year old son...

 

I highly doubt, that if she's even remotely attractive, and she's not getting it at home, that she won't be getting the outside dip. Either it happened just through growing apart, or she planned it from the get go and using the kid being there all the time as an excuse to get you out of the bed.

 

I won't say which, since I can't know that, and even with more details I could only speculate. I can't say 100% either that she's not cheating, but it sounds like she is. I'm aware that many (but not all) Thai women are nothing like our dear, beloved, strong & independent Western women, but she's still a woman.

 

6+ years is a looooooooong time to not be getting any. Especially to a woman in her sexual prime... and as I said, if  she's at least half decent looking, she will be getting attention, compliments, etc elsewhere... add in language (ie a Thai guy will have an easier time hitting on her and making innuendos etc.), the general way women often are, and you got a recipe for disloyalty...

 

If I were you, I'd try to find out if she is cheating. If she is, don't try to "put things back together for the kid". You must not. Once they cheat on you, and you forgive them, you essentially let them get away with it, and they will have lost any respect they still had for you. And they will do it again.

 

If she isn't (and you can do this while you're still finding out), just give her an ultimatum. But you have to follow through, or she'll know there won't be consequences with future ultimatums, and again she'll lose respect.

 

Tell her that you have needs, and you didn't get married to not have them taken care of, and if she won't take care of them, then you will get your pleasure and release elsewhere. Tell her you won't tolerate her behaviour any longer, that you did nothing to deserve this, and you won't put up with it. It's actually very late for that, but this is the only way I can see how this would even remotely be salvagable.

 

Personally I'd leave, but first try to make thorough preparations to get custody (best thing would be to find out under which law you have better chances, then head for there with all of them udner the guise of a vacation, and initiate proceedings), to gather evidence of infidelity or other things that make her a negligent wife (if there are "fault" laws for divorce).

 

Don't sulk. Get yourself right, mentally and physically, and rediscover how much fun you can have.

 

But do NOT stay with her for the kid, if she won't change or if she's cheating or whatever. It will only mess you up, it won't be good for the kid either (I wish my parents had divorced much sooner, instead of waiting until I was an adult).

Sexual prime?

 

She is hitting the wall and if he leaves she will have a hard time re-partnering.

Nope. I do headlines and beer.

Clearly, yet I'm the speculating one... at least mine is based on experience (not my own, but people around me), countless recollections of men from all over the World & divorce stats. And plenty other things..

 

But you do you, if you think battling through a 6 year sex less marriage is the way to go. I can already tell what kind of "man" (or what passes for one, these days) you are, especially with your remarks regarding "low quality foreigners".

 

You're the type that Western girls go for, once they hit that 30+ wall, because you're the "high quality" (in terms of income, easiness of manipulation, etc.) man, who will provide and still feel lucky to have her, even though she's been riding the (insert word for male chicken here) carousel for the past 10+ years, and chances are she's still doing it on the side.

 

Not just Western girls either, if they see who you are, and what they can get away with + make you believe all is well.

Really, he is right.

 

Her subconscious wants him to step up and be the alpha.

 

He needs to focus on himself. Alphas don't cry or whine or beg. They don't have shabby clothing. They don't let their appearance go, or their emotions. They take take of themselves well (and others). Alphas don't orbit their wives like they are the centre if the universe. 

 

That doesn't mean he should push through a "hard no" on sex, obviously. That's assault.

 

But he has to control his own playing field. Subconsciously, she wants it. 

 

When she says no to him, he should act unbothered. Is her body that important to the alpha?

 

She needs to be taken off the pedestal. He needs to treat himself more importantly.

 

She will gravitate towards him.

A) I referenced the wall myself either in that comment or another one

 

B) sexual prime doesn't mean her prime in terms of looks and fertility. it means sex drive. Women do have a higher sex drive in their 30s, as opposed to men who have the strongest in their physical prime as well.

Sadly I have yet to pass through decades of 'married to same Thai wife and had kids' period... so I have no idea what I'm walking about. Oh, sooo sorry I lie.

There are too many 'alpha males' on this forum who think that their age and ignorance can be disguised with money and confidence. Slap the bitch, and show who's boss and you need sex because you're the man' blah blah blah.

T.W.A.T.

Except nobody said any of that, implied it, condoned it, etc.. That's just your insecurity and maybe even projections talking.

 

I don't care how long you've been married. That doesn't make you an expert on women, regardless of nationality. There have been plenty before you, and there sure will be plenty after you, who have been married for decades, and then they found out that all 4 kids weren't theirs, that the wife has been cheating the whole time, etc.

 

They too put her on a pedestal, and were "good guys".

Losing his composure and attacking her is not the trait of an alpha, actually.

 

Wife beaters are losers, not alphas.

 

Financial success and confidence are two major alpha traits and probably the top two things women are attracted to.

Why are the needs of the father/husband so important?

I mean...nobody lives your life if not you.

 

I'd rather be happy than miserable every day, and consoling myself that I'm making some sort of noble sacrifice of my own happiness for the good of my family who probably won't even appreciate it. But hey, that's just me 🤷‍♂️

I clearly didn't put enough detail in my post above. But I do get love from my child. Its all I really care about now.

 

I dont know what to say really about the friends situation or lack there of. I dont live in a tourist city and hard to meet any farang here. Have tried with little success.

 

I think my personality doesnt fit into Thailand to be honest.

I live in Ubon Ratchathani, I hate golf but love pool. Hope this helps.
