I don't think a marriage can be healthy without sex, unless there is some physical or medical condition that interferes. We were designed for intimacy and sexual expression. There is even a book in the Bible devoted to this, Song of Solomon.

That depends: what's more important? Sex or bring with someone you love who also loves you?

Love most definitely. But sex is a way of expressing that love....whether it is absolutely essential or not is the question.

I think it's unfair for an individual who knows they are asexual to seek out a person for marrige with out telling them ahead of time and letting that person make the choice. I always thought the whole point of Marrige was to confine and commit physical intimacy to one person, It's the starting and stopping of sex in a marrige that causes the most problems, People who are asexual don't really enjoy kissing,touching, hugging or any thing that leads to sex, they should stick to having room mates.

Of course you can, if that's what both people want.

Of course since you think men only care about sex, how could you possibly argue that a marriage (that would have to involve a guy) could work without sex or that a guy could separate love and sex?

I voted for no.. then wondered about the same thing you posted. I sippose it would work, but only if both parties were agreeable.

That's the only way it can work.
