You owe it to yourself to be happy in your relationships. Historically, it was precisely these tacit, collusive accommodations that made the marriage of convenience not only tenable but pleasant enough.
However, when we have an emotional connection with someone there is a desire for closeness, touch, and yes, sex. Even if you feel that your relationship is just one of convenience, you can still add some love into it. This went for him too, though sometimes we would try to seem like lovers, it just didn't ring true. This ends up being a relationship of convenience for both. There is nothing selfish about it. Having experienced my first major relationship in my early twenties, I became well aware of how I felt.

Neither of you give a sh-t about dates, holidays or anniversaries and the whole trying thing has stopped entirely. I have a great career, friends, family and a very content life. A understanding between the couples, common interests,and a real friendship. You value the material and social benefits of your marriage over the relationship itself.
