Re: Is a lack of sex damaging to the relationship?

I think it can be damaging, but so can lack of emotional connections with ones spouse that help to create the passion and love for one another that help create a intimate atmosphere for sex to begin with.

Also, lots of things can be damaging to a marriage.

Re: Is a lack of sex damaging to the relationship?

Isn't that like the ol' bait and switch?

Lots of crazy sex while dating, then get married and its 1 - 2x month and she considers it a chore now?

My theory is while you are dating, she didn't have you, thus the every day crazy sex, wanting what she doesn't have. Then after you got married, she now has you and the chase is over, thus no more need to have sex like before, get comfy and it doesn't matter much anymore.

Yet you want the same crazy and amount of sex like before you got married to her.

The sex should be the same before and after getting married. Kids are no excuse either. They go out to a friends house, or you get a baby sitter, bam, sexy time.

So the lack of sex is damaging to any marriage because there is no physical and emotional closeness going on. Usually a LD person would say sex isn't as important and you should love me for me, etc.

Re: Is a lack of sex damaging to the relationship?

If you don't have any kids then run. Get out of that relationship fast. It will not get any better it will only get worse. Especially if your both in your twenties. You be be much happier being single and dating. Your sex life will also be much better being single. You even said it your self that the sex was great while you were single and then died after you said I do. This has happened to me and I have seen this happen to many of my friends. It's easier and cheaper to be single and if the sex dies off you can leave. The sooner you leave and get out of that sexless marriage the happier you will be.
