You may recall that my wife had been on the pill for about 3.5 years, to regulate periods during perimenopause and ease her mood swings. (Contraception is not an issue--I had a vasectomy years ago. Plus, of course she may not even be ovulating any more.)

She discontinued the pill a couple months ago. She reports that her libido seems to be returning.

That's good news, of course. We're talking about some of our non-libido related issues and making some slow, steady progress. The main problem, in my opinion, is that our relationship has become very one-sided, in parenting (we've made a lot of progress on that front), in the bedroom, and in general.

I definitely think that midlife-crisis emotional issues have played a big role in the struggles we've had: definitely on her part on may on mine as well. But we are in a much, much better place with our marriage than we were a year ago.

Heh. I jinxed it, I guess--we had a pretty terrible weekend.

Hopefully just a bump in the road.
