Woman Sparks Debate After Asking If Her Husband’s Refusal To Have Sex Is ‘abuse’… So What Do You Think?

Published

A WOMAN has sparked a debate over whether her husband’s “refusal” to have sex is “abuse”.

Taking to parenting forum Mumsnet, the woman explained how her sex life had taken a nose dive and that she “couldn’t take it anymore” and wondered if it was “grounds for divorce”.

Getty – Contributor The woman described how she and her husband hadn’t slept together once in 2017

She wrote: “I’ve posted with my husband’s refusal to have sex with me under a different name.

“In 2017 – no sex at all and only a few short hugs.

“2016 – sex three times.

“2015 – twice.

Getty – Contributor Many agreed that the woman should leave her husband – but that it wasn’t ‘abuse’

“I can’t take it anymore.

“He’s a fabulous dad to our teen child.

“He loves me – I know he does.

“It’s not enough.

“I’m ashamed to admit to having a non-sexual, emotional affair over the last year.

“This man makes me feel desirable. It won’t go any further than that, but it has given me some comfort.

“For the last year or so, my husband has chosen to sleep in another room.

“This started when he had a heavy cold and snored so much that he kept me awake.

Getty – Contributor Some thought that the woman was in the wrong for emotionally relying on another man

“Every night, he stays in his study and plays computer games. I watch TV in another room.

“He adores our child and will do everything for him.

“I’m depressed and frightened and frustrated.

“I don’t think I can honour the vows I made at our wedding.”

Needless to say, many users were quick to chime in with their thoughts on the matter.

Many thought that while the no sex was not abuse, the woman should still consider leaving her husband.

One such user said: “He’s not abusing you. He clearly either doesn’t fancy you, or has a very low sex drive.

“Either way, clearly you are not happy and so this marriage is over.”

Another added: “Not abuse but certainly an ‘irreconcilable difference’”

Someone else wrote: “It’s not abuse, but it’s clear neither of you are happy.

“Either agree to go to counselling and see if there’s anything worth saving, or separate and find someone new. This is no life for either of you.”

Meanwhile, others considered the woman to be out of line – thanks to her “emotional affair”.

One such user said: “It could be an example of irreconcilable differences, which are grounds for divorce. So is your adultery, for the record.

“It’s definitely not abuse and sorry to be the one to break it to you, but you’re actually the bad guy here.

“Sex with your spouse is not a “right” and they are perfectly entitled to have low sex drive!

“Just imagine the stink people would kick up if this thread had the gender roles reversed and a man thought it was ‘abuse’ for his wife to be disinterested in sex…”

Mcfly Star Danny Jones’ Wife Georgia Posts Inspiring Baby Pic To Prove The Body Doesn’t ‘ping Back Overnight’

GEORGIA Jones gave birth in January, but posted a photo of her post-baby body to Instagram just hours after welcoming her son Cooper Alf.

The 31-year-old model, who is married to McFly star Danny Jones, revealed why she shared the photo when she appeared on Lorraine on Monday.

The model spoke to Lorraine about the photo

Speaking of a woman’s body after giving birth, the inspiring mum said: “As a new mum, I always wondered what pregnant tummies looked like after, because you never know.”

She said that “it doesn’t ping back” and you still “look pregnant”, even after having the baby.

So Georgia decided to share the intimate snap to Instagram to show others how bodies look after pregnancy.

She explained her reasoning to Lorraine: “I was like well why heck not post something like that? Which I think is positive?”

Refer to Caption Georgia posted the photo to Instagram straight after giving birth on January 27

Lorraine said that Georgia looked “stunning”

The chat-show host clearly agreed with the Georgia, and told her that she looked “absolutely stunning”.

Speaking of her own pregnancy, Lorraine said “I did not look like that when I had my baby, but you can still see you have a tummy.”

Georgia agreed, saying: “Very much so!”

In the shot, Georgia explained how she had “greasy hair, prickly legs, very sore bits, big pants, and one empty wobbly tum”.

She went on to say that she was proud of her body, as it “pushed [a] little person out”.

Georgia and Danny Jones tied the knot in 2014

On the show, the glowing mum looked stunning in a black mini dress and heeled boots, but has posted other snaps to Instagram to show the less glam side of parenting.

In one hilarious shot, she held her thumb up while holding Cooper, wearing a nursing top and explaining in the caption that he had just done a “projectile poo”.

Georgia married Danny Jones on 2 August 2014, and gave birth to Cooper Alf Jones on 27 January 2018.

WITH parents as stylish as Beyonce and Jay-Z, it seems impossible for Blue Ivy Carter not to have the most enviable wardrobe.

Unsurprisingly, Blue Ivy’s outfits are straight from high-end designers, so we revealed the true cost of her of lavish wardrobe.

Blue Ivy attended the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles yesterday, and was carrying a £1230 Louis Vuitton handbag.

Another one of her handbags is Valentino, and costs £1765 – so you may have some saving to do if you want your little one to steal her style.

The toddler also regularly shops at Gucci, and has rocked numerous dresses, blouses, and bags.

It’s clear that the famous child is just as fashion forward as her pop star mum and rapper dad.

It’ s no surprise that everyone secretly (or not so secretly) idolises Beyonce, but now it seems that everyone will also be coveting the wardrobe of her daughter.

We can’t wait to see what looks the toddler pulls together this year – as children grow out of their clothes so quickly, we must expect more and more impressive outfits.

Perhaps Beyonce will get her an Instagram account of her own, as everybody loves a lavish #ootd, and a few may want to pinch her look for their own kids.
