Women usually start losing interest after marriage when her man starts farting in front of her, when they want to hop into the sack after work without showering. When men snore all night, keep the woman awake, then roll over and want to french kiss her with morning breath. Doesn't take long at all.

As soon as she gets the number of children she wants, the mechanism shuts down.

The GATES of HEAVEN slam shut...and no power on earth can part them.

Sometimes it's the other way around, lol. When stress from work, children, birth control come along, libido goes out the window.

Many things can cause loss of interest. Birth control pills is one I always ask about when I hear that complaint.

What men rarely understand is that they want sex often and steadily, where as women (provided they aren't on the pill), tend to be most interested during the time we are fertile, which is about 5 days per month. You can see how there is a bit of a mismatch.

Women can often get themselves interested the rest of the time by thinking about sex, so we'll often say "yes" even though we start out thinking, "right now?!" or "again?!" or "whatever..."

I also have many female friends who complain that they can't get enough, but their husband's interest has declined. This is often when he's over 40 and his testosterone level is declining (for testing and supplements see a doctor).

There are things both women and men can do to increase their libido, but first you have to be motivated to want to want sex! Being reasonably physically fit and active (even brisk walking) is a good place to start!

Women lose interest in sex by their second year of marriage and specially after they've gotten all the kids they dreamed of. That's why polygamy is encouraged in other countries.

Good question! Well..to start..why do married men lose interest in sex..ask yourself..how could you lose interest in sex. Women and Men are definitely different creatures though. There are many reasons women can lose interest in sex after married. The most infamous reasons being: they dont feel sexy(having kids adds to this, as does getting out of shape, aging), sex is becoming too routine and boring(change it up dude!), sex drive decreases with age, poor diet, little exercise or even Stress. Stress is a huge factor post marriage because now youre dealing with someone elses problems besides your own..and MORE issues..bills getting paid, oh and did i mention getting old?!

Make her feel beautiful and loved, help her escape from her every day life..make it exciting and different
