Hi Rick,

My husband and I have been married for 28 years. Beginning in 2005 he had sex with seven women. He was active with his last sexual partner for four years. He claims none of these relationships were emotional they were just about sex. He told me that the sex with his final affair partner (she was 30 and I’m 41) was different than any person he's ever been with before. That no other woman, including me, has been able to make him feel the way she does. He's ended that relationship because he loves me and our children; that we are the most important things to him. He wishes he could have the same type of sex relations with me that he had with her, but knows that’s not possible. In wishes he could have had both, but knows that’s not possible. Is there a way I can be with respect him and be with him sexually know that I’ll never be every thing he wants?
