  • It is extremely important. It makes me feel deeply connected to him and I think he feels the same way. We both were lacking this connection in our previous marriages and didn't realize how important it was til we found each other.

  • It's very important to us - not just sex, but intimacy as well. I know that there are couples who have sex one time a month and they are ok with that, but for us it's 3x or more a week. I think the key is how important it is to both people in the relationship, and that they are on the same page.

  • Absolutely!  It is our most intimate bond and the one thing about ourselves that we don't share with anyone else.

  • To me, sex is a bonus. You don't need sex to have a good relationship, but it is an awesome bonus. My best friend (who is a guy) and I were talking about this once and he said it annoyed him how people cared more about sex than having a good relationship mentally. Knowing someone is truly there for you, and truly cares for you, can be just as gratifying, or even more gratifying than great sex :)

  • I used to, but now I have no sex drive so not that important to me. My husband probably has a different answer, though:)

  • I think it's important, but it's not the most important thing. I'm going to say on a scale from 1-10 (1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest) for my relationship, sex is probably an 8.

  • While I think sex is important in a relationship, it is definitely not the most important thing. My hubby and I love getting intimate with each other after the children are in bed. It is our way of reconnecting and relieving stress.

  • Yes very important to be connected

    Answer by TinaP0223 at 9:04 AM on Jul. 1, 2010

  • It's important. It's not just sex but a time for us to reconnect after a long day and get back to being us, a couple again.

  • its part of the glue that holds things together . hubby and i notice a difference when we have not been intimate in a while. more likely to lose our tempers over the small things.
