Hello my name is Angela.
I am more than happy to assist you with your questions by giving you my honest and respectful opinion.

Yes it could cause you to become depressed and the reason you place so much importance on the quantity of sex you have is because you are using this as the measuring stick for how much your wife loves you. Therefore, you are naturally becoming depressed because you are feeling that your wife does not love you. I suggest sitting down and talking to your wife about how this is actually effecting you. Also, the two of you should then decide on compromises that you both can feel good about after discussing this issue in order to increase your sex life. For example, the two of you can discuss having more sex once, twice, or three times a week and so forth.
