There are many couples who lack sexual intimacy when their relationship gets longer in years. Even though marriage is based primarily on love, we can’t deny the fact that sex is very important as well.
Sexual intercourse is a significant part of the relationship but there are people who seek other sexual partners because they feel like their present relationship is already losing its emotional closeness.
The importance of healthy sex life
Sex is one way to show that you care for your partner. Men need it to satisfy their physical and emotional needs and boost their spirits. If these needs are not fulfilled, the possibility for men to stray from the relationship and look for other girls to satisfy their desire is extremely high. Sexless marriage can lead men to commit infidelity. But there are people who think that men who cheated should be blamed when their marriage broke down, women, too, are responsible for driving away their husbands.
Several factors that affect sex life
Being in a sexless marriage doesn’t automatically mean that you no longer feel the love for each other. There are different factors that affect the sex life of married couples. Financial difficulties, work-related stress, and other problems are some of the reasons why couples do not have enough time for intimacy in bed. They tend to get pre-occupied with a lot of things leading them to feel exhausted that they can no longer express their feelings of love for their partner or at least fulfil their sexual obligations. It is depressing to be in a relationship that has no physical affection and sex. These things help make the marriage get stronger and last longer.
There are some people who lose their feelings of love and affection for their partner. They live with pain and loneliness. They already turned cold and lost their burning passion they had with their partner in the beginning of their relationship.
Common results of sexless marriages
New couples start their relationship so happy and deeply in love. They have passionate sex everyday anytime and anywhere but as the months and years pass, their relationship gets cold and boring that they literally become roommates. This whole thing happens on some marriages. The intense feeling at the start of the married life diminishes slowly as time passes by. Steamy sex became seldom and eventually led to a sexless marriage. But instead of seeking the advice of a marriage counselor several couples leave the situation as it is and this leads men to resort to activities that they think would fill their physical and emotional needs.
Men who look for satisfaction outside their relationship consider other avenues to feed their sexual hunger. They resort to watching pornography or nude girls on webcam. They thought doing these things do not damage their relationship since they are not having physical contact with others. Such habits when allowed to persist will result into an addiction which causes the relationship to turn for the worse. On the other hand, some men go to nightclubs just to take a chance to meet someone who can satisfy their sexual desires. They flirt with girls and commit sinful acts.
The scriptures say that two people become one when they get married. Everything becomes conjugal: property and assets, and even their physical bodies. The women’s bodies belong to their man and depriving them of their sexual desire is denying them of their rights. Women should have a clear understanding of the rights and needs of their husband. It is part of their obligation to give them what is due them. Most importantly, love should be a vital ingredient in the relationship to stay intact.
Marriage is a lifetime commitment. It takes two committed people to make marriage work and if it fails, neither one should be blamed alone. Sex is always an issue and it will only be resolved by the husband and the wife. When you found out that your man cheated on you and you still want to fix and save your relationship then do things to win him over and bring back the intimate passion that you had when you just started. Think about great ideas to stimulate your sex life. Reminisce your good times together, rekindle the feelings of love, give adequate and quality time to your partner, wear your sexy lingerie, give generous kisses and hugs, and do all things that you know will help you reconnect as passionate lovers.
