  • I had a sexless relationship for 5 years - not sure xactly WHY - but we were in love with eachother and we showed it in every other way and we were happy but eventually I decided I wanted to have sex again and left the relationship. My partner had a condition where it was almost impossinble and painful to penetrate her and that's why we didn't do it. We should have sought medical help but for some reason we didn't. I regret that now.
    But you maintain the love factor by caring about the other person and showing that you care about them and then they do the same.

  • All marriages turn into sexless marriages eventually. You get old you stop having sex at some point. And what binds us is our affection and love for each other. Like best friends

    • Agreed.. but in initial stage I believe it's crucial

    • Thanks for MHO. And I had an after thought. In case you are thinking of children later, don't delay

  • There shouldn't be sex in marriages. It doesn't work. It never has.

  • You can't. You might as well be roommates at that point.

  • As a longtime cuckold who is never allowed to have any penetrative sex whatsoever, it's much more important to me that she's having sex at least occasionally with other guys than it is for me to be able to penetrate her. But in any case, my only concern is her pleasure, and that's all.

  • At 33? I'm leaving that marriage.

  • It's possible but I personally recommend to have sexual intimacy in a marriage because its healthy for it

  • I know a married couple where he had his prostate removed and "final stage" ED. He gave his wife a "hall pass" with an agreed set of rules.

    • Those rules can never be enough

    • @EaterPeter They are surviving so far.

    • I bet he feel like sh*t

    • Show All
  • Sorry to say this but sex is a huge part of a successful marriage I think. Yes love is important too, but that love is going to dwindle if both of you don’t SHOW each other (through actions) how much you mean to each other by letting each other FEEL it.

  • I dont think you can

  • Tough question. I guess it would be almost impossible to keep it going in the long term. Sex is a need.

    • How about self pleasure techniques

    • Not like the real thing :)

  • It depends on why the marriage is sexless: if he has a medical condition that keeps from performing than you could maintain it but if you think you can just stop putting out and expect to compensate for it in other ways you can't.

  • Not sure, it’s more like roommates then

  • You don't

  • Sexless relationships will not last longer. I have heard about some cases of husband leaving wife and wife leaving husband bcoz they were not sexually satisfied.

  • Difficult situation. There better be strong communication and love for each as well as the best friendship you have experienced. Also if it's a situation where your partner for some reason becomes impossible to have sex, well I think that can be an understandable situation where you make the sacrifice.

    However, if it's just a situation where your partner is just not interested and the rest of the relationship isn't working, I don't know how anyone could have the patience to handle that.

  • I will stress. Everyday. Love is not about the kissing and touching but letting the person know how much you appreciate and cherish them. Valuing their lives above your own.

  • Hire an escort

  • Foreplay as in things what we like

  • easy sex is only a very small part of Love In a Marriage.

  • Get a good sex partner.

  • No sex less marriage
