    DH and I are having hallway s e X lately!
    Where we tell each other to F off as we pass.
    That's how it feels anyway.
    He works away 2/1 and when he is home, he sleeps on the lounge while I parent and I resent him.

    Yes very much so. We kiss and hug hello/goodbye and goodnight/good morning. We snuggle in bed and on the lounge, hold hands when out. There are many almost absent touches, strokes and pats.

    It's hard with young children and s.ex can definitely go on the back burner. But we are very affectionate with each.

    Huge hugs. FIFO is no way to live. When DH and we're living a similar lifestyle (except he was away 2-3 months and home 7-10 days) we fought constantly whilst he was home - it was awful 😞

    It is hard.
    It is the only reason I have been able to stay home with Ds2 and Dd11
    Even if I get a job, he won't be able to get work closer to home as he is unskilled. No jobs here for guys like him.

    How funny...I was thinking of starting a similar thread yesterday.

    I'm really not sure anymore. Dh tries to be but mostly it annoys me.

    We've always been an affectionate couple - kisses, cuddles, holding hands, random bum pinching, tickles etc... Over nineteen years, we've had up periods and down periods in terms of s.ex but we've remained physically affectionate throughout. We both really need it.

    Yes. I couldn't be with someone who isn't. I am probably more so affectionate but DP still gives me kisses and hugs through out the day out of the blue. We usually give each other a kiss before going out if seperately or before bed. I just think what's the point of being with someone if there is no affection towards each other...just my opinion.

    I am terrible. DH loves affection and I know he would like it from me. I generally don't like being touched and find receiving and giving affection very difficult and incredibly uncomfortable. As part of my current psych treatment I'm trying to be more affectionate with DH (and by more I mean even do just one thing. I can literally go weeks without instigating even a peck on the cheek).

    I'm not at all like this with my kids and deliberately shower them with affection because I don't want them to be like me when they're older.

    No. My H has said he doesn't like affection or anything like that. It's been months since I've had a touch , kiss, etc.

    We are very affectionate. I am a very touchy feely person, always have been, and thankfully I've found someone who is the same. We snuggle on the couch, snuggle in bed, lots of random hugs and kisses, hold hands when out in public. We've only been together 3 years, but we've actually gotten closer as time goes by, and even more affectionate.

    By the three year mark in my ex-marriage, the honeymoon was definitely over.
