  • Psychologists and Marriage Counselors say if the sex is good in a marriage than its importance is a 1 but if the sex is bad its importance is a 10.

  • for me its probably a 7 or 8 BUT thats because sex is tied into intimacy for me.

  • It seems to rank higher for men than women. I think I would have to rate it around a 7.

  • To me it is a 10, if the sex part in the marriage does not work, the couples tends to drift apart, intimacy is a must, in order to keep the love alive, and not have it transformed into a brotherly/sister relationship.

  • 10

  • I would say a 10 as well.

  • I agree, I would rate it a 10 *but by sex I include kissing, cuddling, foreplay, etc everything that is connected to sex*. If you are not intimate with your partner, you really cannot have a good marriage.

  • Sex is what brings you together in a marriage. You have to keep your marriage alive and healthy. I rate sex in my marriage a 10 if 10 is the best . We both have agreed that we both need it. Besides its has good health benefits and relieves stress!! I am a SAHM and work from my home. But most people who dont have an active sex life their marriage will end up having problems, cheating spouses, divorce etc..

  • Intimacy is a 9 but sex...2-3. In our marriage the act of intimacy...touching, holding one another, being close, exploring, etc is far more private and fulfilling then just sex.
