I just read this story that a 44-year-old guy who has had no real love since the age of 34,but still stays in the sexless marriage for the sake of his children . Not a good situation! He has been married for 17 years and have kids whom he adores, but his wife stopped loving he more than 10 years ago and has been romantically involved with another man for the last six years. Geuss what?He has accepted this state of affairs !And his wife and he, despite the lack of physical affection, still enjoy a friendly and stable relationship.I think that's quite awkward. But inevitably, he has met another woman. The closeness of this new friendship has, however, only served to illustrate the distance that exists in his marriage.

For children, everything is possible.. Because they care too much for the children and dun wanna affect them emotional.. FOr the parents, it's just like sleeping on the same bed with a fren, and they have complete trust in each other to know wat's the best for the whole family.. IN whole, i think that it's a good way..

This is a unique couple. It takes a multitude of patience to deal with this kind relationship. Now it depends on how the third party deals with its own emotional.

Unacceptable if it occurs to me!But there are so many examples existing in families all over. So it is up to the insiders who operate their own marriage.
