Having Dry Spells In A Relationship Is OK
I just read The Guardian’s article with Pink, and my golly it was good to hear her talk about parenting and relationships.
We all know I’ve talked about my sex-life before, and how amazing it is (not).
However, it’s always nice to hear it from someone who is well-known. Especially Pink – because she’s truthful as F’k, and never sugarcoats anything.
“There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock,” she says. “He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some. “And then I’ll look at him and go: ‘I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the shit you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again.”
“Then two weeks later I’m like, things are going so good, you guys. Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year,” Pink says. “Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me?” She takes a breath. “Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”
Oh golly preach it Pink!!
Parenting can make any relationship tough. When you parent, it sometimes drives a wedge between you as a couple. Doesn’t matter if you’re married or not.
I admire those who manage to continue having a healthy sex life, but from me to you – my sex life is NOT a “healthy” one.
Parenting makes us both tired. We do put effort in – because it is important. But parenting drags us down and at the end of the night it’s easier to just go to sleep.
Phil’s also a night owl, and I’m a morning bird. I go to bed at 8pm, and he comes along at 12am.
Anyway you guys all know this if you’ve read my other post about my amazing sex-life.
I just wanted you all to know that it’s not just me that experiences it! Pink does too – and so do a lot of others.
Thank goodness that as the kids get older, things change. We do get time back to ourselves, and sleep does come back.
