I need to be honest. Sometimes the bills are so overwhelming, My Man can't even think about getting an erection.
I can usually coax one out of him, but things are SO bad, it seems like sex is one of the only ways we can get our minds off of the Horror of this economy.
We try really hard to not let the bad things impact our sex life. But, bill paying days seem to be the worst for our sex life.
It didn't used to be like this, this is only been the last 7-8 years that things have gotten progressively worse. During the Clinton Administration I would have said we were "tentatively mildly well off" thinking things would only get better, or at least stay the same, now we live pay check to pay check.
We did ALL the right things. We both went to college, we worked, we bought our home, we pay our taxes, we refinanced when interest went down, we pay our bills.... we are now worse off than we were 10 years ago. THAT isn't supposed to happen.
I put the blame soundly on the Bush/Cheney Administration and their favoring their "base." The Rich. (Bush said it himself, the asshole.)
