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!
