Since the general consensus is that unless there a medical reason a couple cannot choose to not have sex and have their marriage considered healthy, the question is now: How much sex is a couple required to have in order for their relationship to be "healthy"?

I've heard 3 times a week from most of my married friends.

The correct answer is whenever she's in the mood.

Now determining how to gauge what mood she is in? Weel, that's another topic in of itself.

Often enough for the more eager partner to have his (or her) needs fulfilled, but not so often that the less eager partner feels put upon or used. For most couples, this is probably a compromise of some sort. For very lucky couples, they are on the same page!

Instead of determining when she's in the mood, perhaps you could help her get in the mood.

Oh that's a given. But if she's not 'in the mood', then why set yourself up for failure? Or even worse, a smack down?

bleh, ignore piggie comment...
Since it varies over the life of a relationship...theres no set number of times...when we were younger? giddey-up...now that were older...whenever..it just really depends. The main thing is that it isn't an issue for us. We have our 'go' signals... and the other is on board!!! I would rather have it a couple times a month that leaves us breathless than have it everyday when it feels like something we have to do... or get all butthurt when one isn't in the mood....We brainsex all the time...theres always flirting, touching, teasing...
Sex and money are 'the' issues...and after all these years neither are issues!
