The Magical Marriage: why some people go off sex after eighteen months

By Juliet Grayson.  Published in HealthyNewAge Volume 2 June 2016

This article shows an aspect of Pesso Boyden System Psychotherapy, called a ‘magical marriage’, which can exist between a child and their parent.  In the magical marriage, the parent relies on the child (consciously or unconsciously) – OR – the child feels in some way responsible for the parent.  It is a ‘symbolic’ marriage, and obviously not a literal marriage.  The child is a kind of surrogate spouse, and the child may be filling an emotional void for their mother or father, or they may be (in certain ways) treating each other like partners.  There is no sexual contact or inappropriate physical touch, but the relationship is emotionally incestuous.
