Question of the Week #172

Would you be content with a marriage of the highest quality in all respects but one – it completely lacked sex?

I suppose, if this were a marriage that extended from the life I currently know, I wouldn’t know what I was missing. I once heard someone describe sex in marriage as a bonus and that a good marriage itself was supposed to be the main objective. I would assume, that being the case, that sex is a pretty great bonus. Again, I can only assume.

For most people, it would probably depend on a husband and wife’s love languages. For me, physical touch isn’t super important. Not that I would avoid physical touch if I were in that kind of committed relationship, especially if that was a part of my wife’s love language.

I’m not sure that I can appropriately answer this question, though. Seeing as how I really don’t know what I’m missing…

But what about you? Would the lack of a sex life inside the bonds of marriage be a deal breaker for you? Let me know down in the comments!

One thought on “Question of the Week #172

  1. That’s a tough question mainly because that kind of physical relationship between a man and wife most times strengthens their marriage, so without it, what would be the result? For me personally, I think I could go without sex in my marriage given all other aspects are perfect, but I was sexually abused and assaulted years ago which has affected my sex life as it is, so doing away with those intimate moments in my life would probably be easier for me than for most.
