I don't know what my marriage would be like without sex because it's not something I've thought about. To me sex with my husband is a raw, pure form of intimacy we share and I truly love when it happens. Without it I suppose I would feel that attraction and intimacy isn't there anymore and I think it would affect our marriage negatively. Sex is a moment in which nothing else really matters. We can put all our problems aside and not have a worry in the world during sex. I really don't know though. I suppose it depends on what someone defines as "healthy marriage." To me, its having the whole package. Even sex. Because sex is GREAT haha

I voted no. As I have stated in other posts, everyone needs to be touched, held, hugged, kissed, etc. I think that within a marriage there needs to be more than just sex, obviously, but sex should be a part of your marriage and should be a healthy passionate part of your marriage.

being "touched, held, hugged, kissed" is not the same thing at all as "having sex"

A person can have wonderful nurturing healthy touch, without ever having sex. So a marriage can be healthy without the sex.

The problem is so many people see sex as the ONLY way to receive healthy touch, when in reality, there are lots of other ways, as the above post points out: holding, hugging, touching, cuddling, comforting, all of those

It is my belief that given great effort on my part, with patience and determination....I could learn to swallow whole coconuts and poop them out whole!

The question is...Why would I do that, or engage in a sexless marriage, or even think about it, liking sex as much as I do????"

They'll pry my heat lube, whipcream and eggbeaters from my cold dead hands!
