Menopause is an inevitable truth in every woman’s life and is often shrouded in a thousand fears. Most of the apprehensions are related to the fate of marital relationships in general, and sex life in particular. Although the average age for the onset of this condition is considered to be around 45 years, menopausal symptoms might start showing way ahead of this age.
Most of these symptoms are related to hormonal changes which reflect in behavioural patterns, sexual libido and physical appearance. All these can have seemingly unpleasant repercussions on marriage, in various ways. However, it all depends on the sensitivity and depth of the relationship you share with your partner. If he is a supportive husband, such problems can be easily managed without any major unpleasantness.
Marriages which successfully tide through these difficult times are certainly based on deeper understanding, thus helping one partner to empathise with the other.
