Welcome to HealingWell and the depression forum. I am so happy that you have joined us. You will definately get some advice here.
It could be a combination of both depression and perimenopause. So that is kind of normal. Is it her that is going on the welbutrin or you? Either way, I hope that it works.
When women get depressed, often their sex drive goes down. So that is normal and it could just be her age. Things do slow down in a marraige over time. Some are luckier than others. I am fifty and my drive finally slowed down. But I have fibromyalgia and am always in pain so sex gets kind of hard for me. Pardon the pun...
I hope that you and your wife can work things out. I am sure that she still loves you and once on the anti depressants, hopefully you will get things back to normal. It is good that you are going through marraige counseling. Keep trying and try to be there for her. And if this effects you too much, seek counseling for yourself. I hope everything works out for you.
