What does intimacy mean to you?
In my marriage, my husband works out of state so we only see each other 1 or 2 weekends a month. Even at that, when he does come home, we do not have sex every time. We haven't had sex in about 3 months so far! But to us, this isn't a problem because we believe there is more to intimacy than sex.
We will read books to each other while snuggled up together on the bed, or watch tv together, rent movies together, cuddle on the sofa, give massages to each other, random hugs and kisses "just because." These are just a few examples.
Intimacy to me is being close to my husband and showing him how much I love him, not necessarily in a physical way (i.e., sex).
Sex just isn't that important to our marriage and we've lived like this for the past 7 years (married for 11 years! Whoo-hoo!).
So, what is intimacy to you?
