  • Everyone is different but we once a week is normal for us right now! We have two children a one year old and a two year old. I am staying at home with the babies and he is working as much as he can. He has worked 6 days a week 10 nhours a day. We are tired! If it wasn't for all that, we'd be at three times a week!

  • I agree with pp above me once a week is about all we do it too, we are tired and have a seven month old that co sleeps so its hard even though I stay at home he works alot so unfortunatly our love life suffers

  • I think I read somewhere that for married couples 2 times a month is normal. But, considering the posts above me, I could be wrong.

  • Oh my! I agree that everyone is different - but sex is good for the mind and body, it is a great destresser - especially when you are dealing with small children. My dh and I have been married for 14 years, and we have sex a minimum of three times per week.

  • Everyone is different.No matter how often it happens or not, just make it special each time. Its not the quantity but the quality that counts

  • Me and my DH only do it once a week sometimes less depending on how tired we are. we have a 3 year old and a 10 month old. so whenever we get the chance if we aren't tired. as of right now it's been 3 weeks since we did anything but we run on different schedules so it's expected. i don't mind me and him are 25 years apart so whenever he wants it i'm ready lol. other than that i don't worry about it too much.
