My partner has been moody and uninterested in sex since turning 40

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE she hit 40 my partner has become moody and our sex life has fizzled out. Is her age the problem?

We have been together for six years and our relationship was really good fun until the past few months.

I am 30 while she turned 40 over the summer. She rarely laughs any more and goes from OK to angry in seconds.

We’d have sex two or three times a week but now I am lucky if it’s once a fortnight.

She goes mad if I mention anything about her age.

DEIDRE SAYS: Her age in itself is not a problem but how she feels about it could well be affecting her mood.

Perhaps it has triggered worries about the age gap between you.

Sex problems could be hiding deeper unresolved stuff in your relationship and her moodiness down to feeling misunderstood. Be supportive, say you miss your happy-go-lucky girl and ask how you can help.
