When she got pregnant, she stopped being interested in sex – and me too, for that matter.

It’s as if my only use to her is now over.

I organise date nights for just the two of us but she only ever wants to spend time as a threesome with our little girl.

In the evenings I get so lonely. I come back from work at 6pm but she’ll go to bed at the same time as our daughter at 7.30pm.

Whenever I try to talk to her, she snaps: “That’s family life.”

I don’t know what more I can do.

I finally left my abusive husband but now he's been diagnosed with cancer

Can I tell my partner not to go to her pal's wedding as her ex is going?

GOD'S HONEST TRUTH

My family don't believe my uncle sexually abused me as a child

THANK YOU

You helped me end my relationship amicably and do what's best for our son

DEIDRE SAYS: Do not give up on your wife, please.

It sounds like she is struggling to balance everything after becoming a mum.

Have an honest conversation with her in which you explain that you love and miss her.

Tell your wife that as much as you want to show your love to her through intimacy, you also want to spend time together without your daughter always being around.

Discuss how you can move forward together.

Perhaps you could offer to take on some of the childcare to take the pressure off her.
