[ Original Post ]
I been with my husband for 17 years and have tried to do the best I can. But recently, when I asked him about having a third child, he told me I was being selfish. I knew there were underlying issues and I pressed him on it. I asked him about trying new things in the bedroom and experiencing new things in life. His response was "It's too late and why now after 17 years?" He said I was too old and that doing new things and using new toys in the bedroom would have been fun years ago. I'm only 38 but a comment like that makes me feel like I'm 60 or over the hill. I said that neither one of us has ever been with anyone this long. His response "maybe there's a reason for that. I said that my father and his second wife have now been together for 18 years. His response to me "Are you saying that second marriages are better?" When I don't press the baby issue, things are OK but he's questioning my motives for wanting to go places and do more things with him. He says "Why all of a sudden do you want to start going places?" PLEASE HELP. DOES HE WANT SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS YOUNGER. He's 44 now. Is this a stage that men usually go through and will it pass? Is anyone else going through something similar and are there other men out there who could give me a male perspective on this issue and what a wife could do to change this. I could really use someone to talk to. I love him so much and don't want to lose him. My parents are divorced. My dad left my mom for someone younger and I don't want my marriage to become a statistic. We never fight but I think he's bored with me. Is there anyone who would want to exchange e-mail addresses? I could really use the help. THANKYOU TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP.

use reverse psycology on him. it always works. if he says he is too old tell him he probably is. here are more examples:

The underlying principle here is agreeing with her objection by taking the same position as her. It also evokes the scarcity principle and it makes her run after you like a moth to a flame.

This is what you do...

Her: "I just want to be friends."
You: "That is exactly what I was thinking and was going to suggest it myself. I think you and I would be better off as friends anyway."

Her: "I am not ready to make love."
You: "Now that you mention it neither am I. I think we should wait and really get to know each before we even consider having sex and just cuddle."

Her: "You cannot come upstairs."
You: "Now that you mention it, I am tired and really do not want to come up. If I was to come upstairs with you I could only stay for 10 minutes and then leave."

Her: "I am tired and I want you to take me home."
You: "Yes, you look tired and it's better I do that. I am tired myself and want to go home as well."

Her: "I have a bf/husband/no time/busy/pet died/not my type."
You: "Well I was just thinking that you seem interesting. I too have a gf/wife/no time/am busy/pet died/not my type and thought we could be just friends. I think you are a little too presumptuous about my interest in you here. If you cannot have a casual coffee with me then you can leave now."
