Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this issue in your marriage and from what you write it sounds like your husband is overwhelmed with anxiety and this will often lead to low sex drive or decreased libido.
He could also have a co-occuring depression which typically goes hand in hand with anxiety.
What you need to do is make sure that he has a complete physical to insure that he is not having any physical problems that are related to this ( at his age, I doubt it but you always want to make sure).
Over the years, I have seen many young couple with these issues and although it does impact the current issues in your marriage, it is not something that cannot be resolved. If your husband is depressed, sex and intimacy issues will be taking a back seat as when a person is depressed they are using all of their energy just to make it through the day.
The following information will help you understand depression and how this may be effecting your relationship. The website also has many other helpful articles related to anxiety, stress management and relationship issues. They are all very good.
Talk to your husband about these possibilities and if needed seek the counsel or a trained Therapist that can help each of you with your early marriage adjustment issues.
I think all will be well in time. Don't wait, or it will worsen.
If you have additional questions of me, feel free to ask.
Otherwise, I wish you the very best.
