A woman on Reddit is starting to wonder if her marriage can last if she and her husband never get physical anymore.

The couple's daughter recently left for college, leaving them with an "empty nest."

"Like all couples, we’ve had our struggles over the years – personal and financial – but, actually, the tough times always bonded us and made us closer and stronger as a couple. I’d say we’re soulmates, brilliant friends and really love each other," the woman wrote.

However, over the last few years they have "slipped into this pattern of not having s-x and now it never happens and I think it would feel a bit awkward if it did."

"The thing is, I don’t think either of us is unhappy in the marriage, it’s just kind of how things have gone. He’s consumed by his job and my life is busy, too, but we still hug and show each other affection. But I can’t help thinking there might be problems down the line and that we should be having s-x. I don’t talk to my friends much about s-x, but it’s clear they’re all still having it," she continued.

Now, she wonders if her marriage will "survive."

Users in the comments section offered the woman some advice, with many suggesting she start a conversation with her husband.

"Please communicate with your husband. That is the only answer. You both might be fine with the way your marriage is, one of you might not be, or change their mind along the way. There is no way for other people to know," one person wrote.

"Is it possible you think he doesn’t want to and he thinks you don’t want to? Neither of you wants to get rejected? Also, medical check ups may be a good idea. I’m 63 and my husband is 55 and we are still active," another shared.

"Please talk to each other. I gave up and stepped out. It wasn't my wife's fault. I chose that path, not her. We're reconciling but what I wouldn't give to go back and talk to her like we do now. The pain of telling someone how you feel about your s-x life together is nothing like the pain I caused [with] my BS. A marriage can survive without s-x but not communicating will doom a marriage," someone else commented.
