I am sure that most all men will agree. A few women may disagree, but I have no idea why. I wish my wife would realize this.

Poll added.

By "relationship," you mean marriage, right? Because if somebody wishes to remain a virgin until marriage, I can respect that. But after? Nope. It's not healthy. Human sexuality is normal, healthy, and needs expression.

Yes, I mean marriage. I'll try to change the title. Thanks.

Hope that didn't change the vote for the two females that voted so far.

My mom married an older man after my parents divorced. They were both looking for companionship, not sex and they had a loving, very long lasting relationship. When my step father died, my mom followed two years later. She missed him so much. So yes, people can have a healthy relationship without sex.

Absolutely not. Unless there is physical impairment of some sort, I think sex is critical to a healthy marriage.

It depends. If there are medical reasons for example, I believe someone can actually love his/her spouse and stay married and faithful.

I voted for NO but I guess when you become old you probably dont really want sex anymore. At least, thats what I think. Not sure if old people care about it as much.
