My husband thinks a threesome would fix all our problems

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband would like to try a threesome but I don’t think it will fix our problems.

We’ve been together for 20 years but the past three have been rough. We aren’t intimate at all and hardly speak to one another.

He is 46 and I’m 47.

He twists things to make me look bad when I don’t even start the argument.

We were talking about our relationship and how bad things were when he said: “I’d love to have sex with you and somebody else.”

I was so shocked. I don’t really want to do it and I’m not sure it would help.

What do you think?

DEIDRE SAYS: While a threesome may be fun for some couples, for a couple like you two with issues already, you could be on a hiding to nothing.

Bringing in a third party would surely add further complications to your lives, not help the relationship.

Instead, suggest to your husband you have some couples’ counselling via tavistockrelationships.org (020 7380 1960) to remind you why you fell in love.
