According to Dr. Epstein, a specialist in marital relations, marriage is defined as sexless when a couple has intimacy less than 10 times a year or less than once a month. Is this a problem?
Epstein has estimates that about 5 to 7 percent of the couples she sees in her practice, are in this type of relationships and are perfectly happy with their married life. This confirms that a lack of intimacy does not mean to be in a relationship without love.
If you are in a sexless marriage, and is not happy, you should know that you are not alone. So, should you move toward separation and divorce? It depends if you want to save your marriage or not.
The biggest reason of not being intimate is simply a busy rhythm of life majority of married couples have. Most people are just extremely busy with their jobs, children, and everyday responsibilities. If you put all your everyday tasks on the list, intimacy will be at the bottom.
Also, we should remember that after several years of being together, sex life becomes more and more routine and very often you have to make effort to have time with each other. If routine is the only reason or the main reason of this problem, you should block time and get back to time when sex and intimacy was so important for both of you.
Lack of libido or desire to be intimate with each other is completely different situation. Should you get a divorce if intimacy is the only problem is your marriage? We all know that all issues start with a problem in communication between people, and that is why many married couples in crisis start with a therapy.
