Good sex requires a good relationship and honest communication — and most people don’t know how to do that.
While most relationships start with physical attraction and sex, the physical aspect decreases over time as you have children and go through years of childrearing, building a career, and trying to become successful. The relationship often takes a back seat.
But some are able to keep the flame alive. Those are the people who are primarily committed to one another and understand that being kind, loving, and respectful of each other keeps relationships alive.
Sex will stay in the equation only if the other pieces of the puzzle stay there as well.
If a person doesn’t respect their partner, doesn’t involve them in their everyday life, and doesn’t include them in their work, childrearing, and building a family, the marriage will not last — and sex is the first thing to go.
When a woman is in a sexless marriage, she gets depressed because she feels unloved and not sexy.
Sex can make a comeback if couples work on getting the relationship back on track.
Marriage counseling, dating each other, and making the effort to connect can go a long way to rebuilding lost intimacy.
