Thats like asking if you'd be happy with a Cadillac without wheels.
I'm in such a situation. Obviously not completely happy in a sexless marriage, but my wife is wonderful.....she needs to take a number of medications & has no interest in sex, but she's there for me and the family in every other way. I wouldn't say I'm unhappy, but I'm a little bit frustrated at not having sex the last few years.
That's just friendship. I already have that.
Yes. S ex would not be the pivotal thing in my marriage.
Getting frisky is part of it.. unless there was a horrible accident too the guy :(
sorry to hear this
As long as it doesn't give cause for big dramas, it's something you can live with.
I have a happy marriage and it is with out sex. Not the way I want it but after I accepted the fact that she didn't want to have sex the fighting stopped. We don't fight anymore. The arguements were very rarely about sex, just pent up frustration, so I am on here to share thoughts, and pics. I get my frustrations out by writing. I also ********** a lot but I did that even when I was having sex.
Hell, no. If a marriage did not resolve the sexual fulfillment problem It's hard to imagine how the pros could outweigh the cons. Given the fact that marriage IS in part the taking of another person as one's sexual partner, the denial of sex is a betrayal and a rejection whose importance cannot be exaggerated. I considers non-disabled wives and husbands who refuse sex long term to be phony spouses who deserve to be cheated on or divorced, although I do not condone cheating and marriage-breaking.
Definitely. I don't really care for sex.
The ONLY exception would be due to an illness that renders one of the spouses unable to have sex, in which case S-E-X could be understandably set aside, but the relationship as a whole might grow closer, get better. <br />
On the other hand, if physical healing took place, and health was restored, in a truly loving relationship, that couple who loved one another through those tough times are likely to blow the doors off their bedroom.
yep, my sex drive isnt what it use to be plus we'd be able to do other things for a change lol
no sex is a very important part of a high quality marriage. There is no other closeness that can replace it. No other offering you can give to your partner other than an internal organ that is more satisfying.
'Happiness in a marriage' is not complete without sex.
Im in one! And im not happy! but thats not because of no sex... its because of the constant bickering :-(
Although sex does not make a marriage lack of can definatly break one. No relationship should be ba<x>sed soley on sex but I do believe it is a VERY important part of a relationship ecspecially a marriage
Why do you ask ?
Coming from personal experience, I guess there are different levels of happiness, but the true answer is without physical intimacy and attention you really can't be truly happy.
I think sex is a natural part of life. Without this part of the relationship - it becomes more like a brother and sister bond. Resentment and trust fade away.I am going out with a guy where we have not had sex for over ten years. I feel denied and cheated out of something that is a natural part of my living. I am definitely think of having an affair but having a hard time finding the right person. I made the wrong choice even considering going out with this guy. So my answer is is that I feel it is not natural to not have sex in a marriage.
