I am 62 and my wife is 59 and since last Oct. 2011 we have had sex apprx. 6 times. My wife was recently diag. w/breast cancer and has been treated and is doing fine. She states that she is somewhat depressed and that feelings will come back, but I'm not so sure. Our sex life has been steadly becoming less and less for about 3 yrs. now. I know that she wants dining and dancing to get in the mood, but thats unrealistic for most married people. I would like sex about twice a week so the economic's won't work with that. I think that her interest in me has waned for what ever reason (I really have'nt changed much in 15 yrs.) so what might the problem? I think it's me, but I know that it takes 2 to tango.
