In your experience, is this a normal result of NRE? Or maybe it's a sign I don't romantically love my husband anymore?
We are great partners in many other ways (work, raising children, cohabiting, etc), but I don't see how someone will accept being partners in every way but sexually. It's like I would be relieved if he got his own girlfriend. These feelings are so dark to me that I find it very difficult to admit them. Plus I'm terrified to make wrong decisions
I highly doubt you don`t romantically love him anymore. I would place a healthy wage on the NRE for the boyfriend, leaving you spent in the lust department.
If I were you, I definitely wouldn`t make life-altering decisions, while in the throes of NRE.
I wouldnt push him to get a girlfriend, but if he does, you might find yourself wanting his attention again, like many others have, after their partner found someone else. The mind is a tricky thing.
