What Exactly Is a Sexless Marriage?
A sexless marriage is one in which the partners have little to no sexual activity. Many couples have periods of more and less sex. A brief period of less sex is not considered "sexless." While no exact definition exists, many people define a sexless marriage as one in which the husband and wife have not had sex (or have only ever had extremely infrequent sex) for another year or more.
There are numerous reasons why a couple might find themselves in a sexless relationship. It is up to the couple whether being in a sexless relationship is an issue, but if the desire for sex and physical affection is a problem, there are ways to work through this together and separately.
Begin by determining the underlying cause.
There are numerous reasons why a marriage may become sexless, ranging from health issues to lifestyle factors. Here's a rundown of some of the most common reasons.
The overall physical and mental health of individuals can have a massive effect on their libido and desire for physical closeness. In both sexes, health issues and functional limitations can disrupt the biological function of arousal.
It's normal to have some issues with sexual functioning, but if they persist for more than just a few months or are creating trouble for you or your partner, you should consult a healthcare provider.
Sex drives incompatibles
Not everyone wants the same amount of sex, and sex drive fluctuates naturally. When the desire for sex does not coincide, it is common for couples to wait to engage in sexual intercourse until both partners are in the mood, which can be scarce.
ED (Erectile Dysfunction)
Difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection can make having sex difficult for a variety of reasons.
While erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common issue, it can also have an impact on a person's anxiety, confidence, and self-esteem. People who experience ED symptoms should always consult a doctor, as they may indicate an underlying health condition.
Sex Drive Weak
Low sex drive, also known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), can affect both men and women. Menstrual cycles, the use of hormonal birth control, giving birth, nursing, hysterectomy, and menopause are all factors that may contribute to HSDD in women.
Will a Non-Sexual Marriage End in Divorce?
While there has been little recent research on the subject, older studies have found that lower sexual satisfaction and sexual frequency are associated with marriage breakdown. According to a 2015 study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, getting more sex significantly increases well-being in relationships, only about once a week. More than just that did not, according to the study.
Being dissatisfied with your sex life can cause problems in your relationship. That is to say, the absence of sex isn't necessarily a problem, but any dissatisfaction with the absence of sex is.
If you're worried about the amount of sex you and your partner are having, you might be beginning to wonder if your relationship can last. Deciding to give up your marriage can be difficult. Many various factors can contribute to sexual satisfaction in a relationship, and they vary between individuals.
It is up to the couple to decide whether being in a sexless relationship is a deal breaker. However, if you find yourself in a sexless marriage or are unhappy with the frequency of women you and your fiance are having, the first step is to explain your feelings to your partner and start exploring ways to find the affection that each of you requires to feel fulfilled.
There are numerous causes for a relationship to become sexless, many of which are treatable. Sexual problems in a marriage can be very difficult, but you don't have to deal with them alone.
