About woman in marriages in the past, that were used for "Wifely Duties" without romance.

 
Dearly Departed Sweetheart,and husband.
Serious time I put in, when I said " I do "-I kept true to the vows, but not to myself.
you have long been sick of me, and I hated I had to give up my "status" to be stuck with you. See people needed me when you hogged me up all for your self.Married me and gave me twelve children ..Before birth control. You never bettered my lot. I would wash, cook, clean-routine. Children and more children,without the pleasure of making them. Not even a kiss did I get, On/off -bun in the oven...
I wanted to know "was that all there was"...and then death parted us. 
I never thought I would have another life, After your transition, I was living my life through two of our twelve Kids 
Now that you have left, and I still have life; I will be looking for the ecstasy...and getting advice on my new life from our babies. Coming out of the dungeon, I am not looking back in regret- nor am I sorrowful.
I just wish that being your wife and being only for you,meant I'd be privy to your prowess.... or could have meant that you'd also be my pleasure.
Agony without ecstasy equals misery. I kept my vows and we are now parted.
I am sorry that we could not share our marital bed n blissful harmony.
Not even a passionate kiss, "dearly departed husband"- You don't know what you've missed. 
I am a wildcat and just for the record, "You Didn't need that mistress".
