It is very frustrating to live life like that where no one accept you and respect you….and the wife does everything possible still only time to blame. And last of all expect physical intimacy…

100% the relation will die down soon until unless they are compelled to pull it along for their family or so. Conjugal relation is vital part of the married life and lack of it means either of the couple is not at all interested in another one. Lack of mental bonding between the couples result in lack of intimacy. There is no meaning at all in staying like roommates under one roof. In most of the cases, it can be solved by opening up their mind – the ego of one prevents from it where the role of a counselor can be raked in. First once has to be friends and once they open up their mind, the ice starts to break. Some are not ready to take the responsibility – excuse are like the job, lack of support from family, etc. So, I suggest you to please let you free of him and enjoy your life as an individual as sex is not all in a our life.

I believe it is possible to to remain that way before taking the relationship to an intimate level. Once that happens, its impossible to go back unless of course the couple has a baby for instance. But its only a matter of time before the relationship ends up heading to its logical destination!*p*

Interesting question, this one. When you speak about roommates the Proximity principle comes to the effect. Whether you touch each other or do not touch each other the proximity does play its role. One cannot avoid the flow of adrelanin when one is close to another, especially one you live within the same room.. You like it or not the proximity principle works. It is your choice whether you wish to be closer and intimate or define a line one would not cross. If things are hunky-dory usually if they are not enemies then room-mates do become soul-mates.*p**p*Physical intimacy is a choice.*p*

Probably not. After a point, you need the physical intimacy to take your relationship to the next level. And it's a really necessary thing when it comes to knowing your partner and bonding with your partner which we really can't overlook.*p*

Physical bond is a cementing factor, I think till one is young it is imp otherwise one will just look for it elsewhere and then that person will become the soulmate…or at least will have chances to. *p*

Yes! That is so true! So very true! The thing is we are so obssesed with the physical that it somehow overshadows all other aspects! *p*

Each relationship is different. Intimacy is personal and only two individuals can decide what works for them. It is also a natural process. If there is understanding and comfort in the relationship msybe forced intimacy is a wrong idea. *p*

You can provided its a mutual decision. If one partner is interested and the other doensn't then it becomes an issue. Realistically, I do not think it is possible. A perfect relationship is the product of an emotional and physical attachment. I do not think the relationship will survive in the long run given the fact that the element of physical attachment goes missing. *p*

I think it's important to understand the reason behind that lack of intimacy u talk about. Is it because of a lack of interest or is it because your partner is still in the process of opening up with you. There r relationships which could qualify as searing the strongest bond without the stamp of being physically intimate. The reasons as I said r important. People in the past didn't limit love to being physically engaged. It's in today's times when love and intimacy have now begun to overlap in nature. PDAs have become the benchmark of being in love. Don't get into this loop. Physical intimacy is only a side effect of love.not it's foundation and definitely not it's measuring unit. Having said all this, you might just want to have an open discussion and try to know what's on his mind really!!*p*
