Have you actually, you know, talked to your partner about this situation?
Is this new? Has something major happened/changed in their life (parent's death, depression, change of medication)? Do they have a natural low sex drive? Or maybe just figuring out that they're asexual or don't enjoy sex?
Yeah, I'm sure it sucks that you aren't getting laid. But maybe you should try not to make it about you, and figure out what's going on with your spouse.

Either op is gay and (wrongfully) thinks this is a smart way to not suggest it or it's one of those ridiculous tumblr things where people make up nonsensical pronouns and op's spouse wants to be 'they/them'.

When your horny you should start locking up his video games until he pleasures you. This way when your need are filled then he can do whatever he want after.
But yes if this a recurring issue it might be time for a divorce

It’s becoming singular now. We’ve had discussions about it in my college English classes. Even in an academic paper, you can use “they” if you don’t want to use a specific gender, even for singular.

Ainarr and Raven are correct. "They" as a singular pronuon has been around for over 700 years, and follows the same development as "you" as a singular pronuon. ("You" was plural only back in olde Englische.) But get ready for more change - it is now being used to reference non-binary genered people who idenitfy as neither male nor female., as in, "This is Pat. I met them at work."

The only people who complain about the singular “they” are the closed-minded ones who want to get mad at people who identify as non-binary.

It really HAS been around for hundreds of years, and appears even in Emily Dickinson’s work.

People are just haters who cry about change.
