My wife is going through perimenopause which, to say the least, has been destroying our relationship. The condition has caused her to have mood swings, gain weight and lose her libido among other things. If anything, we may have sex once every month or two, but that's only if she forces herself which, at least once has caused her to almost throw up afterward. We have no passion, no intimacy and no sex. I can't touch her for fear of rejection and/or causing her to feel uncomfortable. Her mood swings cause even the simplest disagreement to turn into major arguments. This is not something that happened over night. We've been dealing with this for almost two years now and it's just getting worse. She's been to three doctors who haven't helped one bit. Her friends and our therapist have suggested hormone replacement, but she's been unable to get a dr to prescribe this treatment since they all say she's too young (39). I still think she's beautiful and sexy and want so badly to make love to her and feel the passion we once had again. Anyone out there in the same boat? What have you done to deal with this? Any suggestions? HELP!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
