I also agree that's pretty ridiculous even though I voted that sex IS necessary for a healthy marriage.

IMO sex is an important part of marriage but that's not what marriage is ALL about.

I think that many people feel that recreational sex can be good, but sex with someone you love can be even better. Both are fun.

Sexual intimacy is a huge part of a marriage or a committed relationship. It is a way to connect and express love in a very personal way.

I would submit that this thought is shared by many women, too.

I think it depends on how important it is to the ones involved in the relationship.. personally, I don't think I could. Maybe one day.. but that's not my reality today.
