    You kept a straight face for a couple of seconds after writing that, and then you started to cry and hold your head in your hands. :p

    Easy - I kiss her goodnight, go play games for 5 or 6 hours, then go to bed myself... preferably without disturbing her, as she'll shout at me for waking her up.

    Maybe I've been watching too many daytime commercials, but I thought it basically shrivelled up and died after your 50th or so? :p

    I know someone who does exactly that.

    They are in a relation, have seperate beds but don't sleep with each other...it's more like a mutual partnership

    I think plenty of older folk sleep in separate beds, but a partner outright saying hanky panky will never happen would be difficult to get over. That's coming from someone in his mid-thirties though. Totally understand libidos diminishing etc. but you'd have to ask why it is being taken off the table. Most reasons (mental, physical, historical) can be worked through with the help of professionals. To flat-out refuse seems rather selfish, almost.

    My parents did that, and that was their excuse. I moved out, 3 days later they announced they were breaking up. My response: "About time really eh?".

    I've got Borderline Personality Disorder, I'm lucky my wife understands that although I know she loves me, sex cements that knowledge for me.

    So no, I couldn't do that because in my messed up head, no "jiggy jiggy means no love!"

    I'd rather have a cheeky **** lad.

    She's 60, an old timer. Let her be.

    She probably wants the companionship more than the actual relationship. At that age who wants to be alone and having 1 partner for a long time would probably make you feel guilty going elsewhere so she’s no doubt torn herself rather than just not wanting to.
    Me personally I wouldn’t want to go the rest of my days not being able to be intimate because it’s as tho your just filling the spot where her true lover was rather than being something new

    I thought this story was going to climax in some kind of swingers shenanigans, bit of a let down really.
