Marriage Without Intercourse - Can it Last?

Posted: 22/09/2008 |Comments: 0 | Views: 6,598 |

One of the cornerstones of the concept of marriage for Christian couples and non-Christians across many cultures is that sex and marriage is a fundamental if not sacred thing. With this in mind very few marriages start sexless but many end up that way and while some claim that sex is just a physical action and can be divorced from love and a happy marriage they may not have lived as a person that has been rejected by their supposed lover and suffered the humiliation and loneliness of a proper intimate marriage which has to include enough physical intimacy to satisfy both partners desires; it is not called "making love" for no reason!

Marriage without intercourse is a cold, depressing and loveless thing and as nearly everyone who has been in the same situation will tell you the urge for infidelity becomes very strong not because they simply want sex but they want the closeness you feel when you engage in sexual activity. As these people will also tell you though an affair is not the right thing to do because a quick fling does not have that closeness only excitement which fades fast. If you love your spouse you want to make love to them and if you can not do that where do you go?
For many, they go to divorce court.

Not because they do not love their spouse but because they need to cut loose and find someone who can love them back. This is the last resort of course because any relationship that ends with you still having emotional ties to your ex has terrible repercussions for the next relationship. This in turn leaves many rejected spouses to make things so bad they are forced to hate their lover so they feel they can move on even though this is just a delusion!

So, a marriage without intercourse has very little chance of doing well or surviving because intercourse is just a scientific way of expressing an act which deepens and continues love on many levels leaving those longing for intimacy with two choices, a messy divorce or ... fix your sexless marriage!

    # Sex is an important factor in any marriage. The longer the marriage, the higher the chance couple tends to reduce the number of times they have sex in a week. Job commitment, children and work pressure are some of the contributing factors. They find intimacy a chore instead of a way to express love and care for each other. This is a very sad situation.

    Marriage is a commitment, a relationship involving the joining of a man and a woman. It is as old as creation itself, dates back to the creation of Adam and Eve. To my mind, it is the union of two people from different background, with different orientation, attitude to life and philosophy

    One in every three couples complains of problems in their sexual life after marriage. A lot of the married couples admit to having sex once a month or less. After few years of marriage, the sex turns into mechanical and passionless. There is a lack of kindness, ardour, eroticism or generosity. As people grow old, the frequency of sex declines.

    A marriage without intimacy is a marriage without real love and becomes more like a brother-sister relationship than that of lovers and life partners. Sadly it is estimated that about 18% of married couples live in what is termed a "sexless marriage" where bedroom activity is counted at less than 10 times per year. While sex cannot be quantified like this as people can be happy with less sex or more depending on their preferences this does show that many millions of people have intimacy problems
