Yes,marriage can survive without sex! There are many many reasons you aren't having sex , but if you feel it's because of you then talk to your husband(wife) and ask what's going on. So many people think sex is all there is to marriage but it's so much more and sex is only a small part of it in reality,my husband and I haven't had sex for awhile now and God only knows it's not because we don't want to and we aren't old goats either we'd have it every day if possible , but we didn't and don't base our Love and feelings on sex,guess that's an adult attitude though . So don't give up you can have a beautiful life together without sex ,take it from someone who could never get enough once upon a time. Good Luck To You Both.

My husband and I have been married for 17 years. He had an affair a couple of years ago. During that time our sex life was null. Once I found out about the affair, he stopped it and we worked on our marriage. All was good, in the bedroom and in everyday life. However, over the last year, we had sex maybe three times last year. And well this year not at all so far.
He claims he has performance issues. I can't help but think he still wants the person he had the affair with. I have mentioned that we need to be more intimate, but nothing ever materializes.
The longer we go without sex, the more I grow with resentment, and then do not want to have sex with him. Is my marriage over?

I have been married for 13 years. I have been with her for 17. It was really great the first 10 years but she slacked off after our kids.

It does affect a couple, but only if just one of them is holding out. If neither wants,it shouldn't be a problem.

I had to break down and say "if I don't get it at home, I will have to get it someplace else."

IT WORKED!

Could it be that she was tired? Were you helping her with the kids? You think it was all her fault? What a jerk! So I guess it was good after you threatened her into satisfying you. Maybe SHE was getting it some place else where she was appreciated???????

NO WAY!When GOD created us he did intend for us to have sex. When you are not having sex that's leaves room for an idle mind and idle minds can be very dangerous to any relationship especially a MARRIAGE!

NO!Sex is a good portion of a relationship you have to keep it new in the bedroom or else it will just get old.If it gets old or you are not having it at all there could be grounds of adultery.some people when they get married thats the one they want to be with for the rest of there life but if something goes missing in the relationship then there always going to be problems.

I am in an abusive relationship and my husband disgusts me and don't want to have sex with him. I find excuses not to be intimate. He is fat and smokes and he smells so don't want any part of it. I stay because he is a great provider but other than than I am very unhappy. My husband doesn't turn me on and is a terrible lover. I would love to find someone else- I just don't know what to do.
