If you are a fan of  WE tv’s Braxton Family Values, you met Andre Carter years ago as the on-again, off-again husband of Braxton sister Towanda Braxton. Andre Carter, aka Andre Braxton, visited our reality check segment to discuss a phenomenon that he claims many men deal with but don’t have a platform to discuss; sexless marriages. Carter claims that he was in a sexless marriage with Towanda Braxton for over three years before the couple divorced this past year. “It happens a lot more than men want to admit. When there is no physical intimacy the connection has deteriorated and sometimes men don’t know what to do,” Carter said.

Andre shared how things started going downhill after he moved out of the couple’s bedroom and created a man cave of his own. “At first I was fine being in my own room. I could watch all the porn I wanted and didn’t have to worry about her coming in,” he laughed, “but then after awhile I wanted to be with my wife and it became lonely.” Carter says he would beg Towanda for affection but was turned down so much that he eventually stopped asking.

Carter admitted his actions and lack of drive possibly contributed to his wife’s lack of interest in intimacy. “I know I did a lot to hurt her before the actual marriage and much of that never healed. I guess she just got fed up and that’s where the results of all that pain and hurt showed up,” he said.

Carter said some women are able to have sex with their husband even if they are upset but unfortunately for him, that wasn’t the case in his marriage. He also suggested that many times women know when their husbands are cheating and instead of dealing with the problem they choose instead to cut him off sexually.

    I learned the hard way being married to a serial cheater.. I forgave it… Actually believed it had stopped. He told me 2 years ago that he was finished with cheating . That hurt more than the discovery that he was cheating. I lost all desire, trust and belief in him. Yes I left. There are so many marriages who deal with this from both people. To think it is one thing… To know it is to much for me. It made me doubt myself as a woman… I still deal with that to this day. We had great sex. His cheating led to me being called names. The list is endless. I believe that men dish out what they can’t take.

      You are right, they are the weaker vessel in mind.

    Who wants to continue to have sex with a partner that’s cheating? Mentally you shut down and after awhile your body stops responding. Sex becomes boring and you just lie there. Adultery always changes things

  • Michele D Jernigan
