Meet Chloe, 40-something, from England. I stumbled upon Chloe’s story in the Mirror. A middle-aged woman in a sexless, loveless marriage, she could so very easily be a Bored Wife herself.

While I’m never one to take solace out of other people’s misery, it’s heartening to know that you’re not alone.

And then, in the same article, there was Jenny, followed swiftly by Claire.

They elucidate on their sexless marriages and their conquest to find a man outside of their marriage. Whether it’s arthritis, menopause, depression or something totally different altogether, what stood out is the alarming amount of men who seemingly want to make love to their wives, yet can’t.

Whether that’s a willing refusal from the women in question, or their hand is forced, we’re losing our libido.
