yes...the Catholic Church does allow for annulments for that....probably first they would suggest he/she get a physical, then counseling....

this is a two way street...my friend/co worker confided to me that her husband who is 60 is impotent...and she's afraid to suggest seeing a dr or using youknowwhat.....she's very upset about it because she is in very good shape and looks 20 yrs younger than her age of 60....

Please tell your friend, that marriage isn’t about “sex”, but about love, and fidelity to the oath taken for life.

I buried my beloved last spring, after 10 years of Parkinson’s Plus symptoms that seriously impaired not only our sexual relationship, but our emotional relationship.

Does that give me a pass on “youknowwhat”? I have no answer.

All I know is that vows are to be taken seriously, or else there is no meaning to marriage, other than an expensive party, trip, and accumulating stuff to impress the peer group.

I hope your friend/co worker has enough dignity to keep her personal life challenges out of the workplace, and that you have enough sense to politely tell her that such “sharing” is inappropriate in a work environment.

I managed, and she can too, and she should be kept at a distance, because she is already crossing the boundary of proper work ethics by discussing such a personal matter with you, no matter what her age.

That said, having traveled miles in her moccasins, I know the pain, the loneliness, and the urge to reach out for comfort and support.

The workplace is not the right environment, and you are not qualified.

Get her some phone numbers of skilled counselors. and tell her tt officemates are not the best at helping in such personal situations.

Wondering if you get my drift?

Might be wise to document things, and have witnesses for future encounters.

If they reached the age of sixty without attaining a level of trust and communication, then they deserve to end it asexual.

And why are they talking about this? Bad sign there too.

Viagra is perfectly legitimate for the treatment of impotence. Impotence needs therapeutic intervention. It is not grounds for annulment.
