Jilly, what happens if one partner wants sex, but the other ALWAYS says NO? Should the other partner accept involuntary celibacy and deny their own feels and desires in respect of the other partner?

Craig......I understand what you are saying. I was once in a marriage where for years we had very little sex for various reasons. It was like being roommates. That lack of intimacy had a big hand in destroying the marriage completely. I learned some very tough lessons with that experience.

Having been set straight as to the benefits of sex between two people who love each other, I conducted myself differently in my next intimate relationship. It made all the difference in the world in nurturing that relationship as a whole, and also by instilling peace and joy within each person. You are right, love takes action.

I feel for you. I hope you can find fulfillment and happiness, even if it has to be with another partner. Sometimes that is the only answer when you have tried every other avenue.

My answer to this question is short and sweet: as often as they both want to! It varies from couple to couple.

Of course it does vary from couple to couple. The main thing is to meet each other's needs with love and consideration, and to maintain that intimate connection. No two relationships are the same.
