made me think about this from reading another question.... adult content

So my man and i have really great sex. I love him and I know he loves me but we do fight a lot due to financial issues mostly but its very tough sometimes. But omg when we're gettin down to it.. i don't have a care in the world and i swear we have the best sex ever! lol but i'm just wondering, is that a bad thing that i feel like the sex holds our relationship together?! i feel like there should be more to a relationship than just sex, and there definitely is, but i feel like thats when we're at our prime. lol

  • Sometimes, when we're going through the rough patches, great sex can help us stick it out. Try to work on your financial issues (do you watch Suze Orman? She has some GREAT ideas!) as a team, because they really can chip away at a good marriage. Good luck!

  • Hey, Sex is an important part of a relationship. It should be enjoyed & enjoyed often. And it's free! (Well for most of us it's free- lol) I think it's good to have something to look foward to & I'm sure you have a deeper relationship than that. I dont think you'd be able to reach such levels of "enlightenment" w/out a true basis of love!

  • When things are tough in other areas, I think it's 100% ok that sex is holding things together. At least there is somewhere things are great! Once things level out financially things will level off. Good luck to you!

  • during your marriage there are going to be different things that lack and different things that hold you together. In order for the sex to be great that means that has to be passion there-kudos to you for that! I agree with PP's suggestion to check out Suze Orman (just google and it will bring up tons of stuff) someday the sex may not be as great but you will have great companionship with your DH--enjoy the sex!!

  • Sex is a way of connecting on many different levels, so if something in the marriage is hurting, sex is a good binder to keep you going because you're showing each other that no matter what you're going through, you have love for each other and just really enjoy each other!

  • Although sex is one of a great deal of great things about a relationship BUT its not the only thing...if communication is lacking, eventually the good sex will wear off and then what are you left with?
