My wife hasn't let me touch her ever since we lost our son

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE we lost our 19-year-old son in a road accident my wife will not let me touch her and says she no longer cares about sex.

She is 46 and I am 48. Our wonderful son was hit by a speeding driver and died instantly.

He was so full of life – a thoughtful, caring young man – and we were such proud parents.

He was engaged and about to go into the police. Our lives have been utterly destroyed.

But I still have a high sex drive and don’t want to cheat. She is my soulmate. 

DEIDRE SAYS: Losing a child is so painful. Grief affects people in different ways. Her sex drive is blocked and sex won’t work unless you are both willingly engaged.

Encourage her to get some help through the Compassionate Friends, a group for and of bereaved parents (, 0345 123 2304). Rather than pressing for intercourse, ask her to start sharing soothing massage – which can also get you back in tune physically.
