Is it just us, or does it seem like two topics that are coming up more and more are grey divorces (people who end their relationship after decades of marriage) and sexless marriages (couples who only have sex between 10-15 times per year)?
And after spending some time in cyberspace on the topic of sexless marriages, here are some of the things that we discovered:
Between 15-20 percent of married couples are in a sexless marriage.
On average, couples have sex 68 times a year.
Children, boredom, poor communication, low self-esteem, unforgivingness, emotional affairs, financial stress, and hectic schedules all play a role in sexless unions.
A "lack of interest from their partner" is what both spouses claim is the biggest issue.
20-30 percent of men and 30-50 percent of women claim to have no sex drive at all.
Geeze, when you think about all of the good things that sex does for you (gives you energy, boosts your confidence, reduces stress, helps you lose weight, makes you more productive, connects you with your partner, etc.), these are pretty grim statistics.
If you can relate, (pardon the pun), don’t take being in a sexless marriage lying down. There are things you can do, as soon as tonight, to get you and your partner’s sex drives and sex lives back on track!
