I hate that society holds such value over sex.....a couple can't be happy just because they are best friends, they can only be happy if their sex life is great. I don't understand. Since when did that become the determination that a marriage is good or bad???

 I can testify sex doesn't determine how good a marriage is.  The stbxh and I had amazing sex but everything else just didn't click.  Even after he cheated on me he has told me that the sex hasn't compared to what we had,  but sex is just that, sex while it may be an integral part of a relationship it's all the factors combined that make or break that relationship, there is no one factor greater than the other just less apparent or less esteemed.

I hear you! Even my damn counselor said sex is a big factor in a relationship/marriage! Like seriously?! I feel like having good communication would be more important than that, ya know!

 I think maybe it's the emotional connection you make during sex. Of course from experience I've learned that the conection isn't always there because we are tired. Also bored of the same sex everytime....but I believe that is what is meant. There sould be a good frequencey that both partners are comfortable with and sharing that moment where you are so vulnerable opens you up to each other in a deeper way.

I usually hear society putting emphasis on open communication in a relationship. Everything else is just added support.

I totally understand, when my dh and I met, sex was not important in our relationship, and twentyfour years later it still isn't. Being good friends is far more important as well as communication.

I do get miffed that sex seems to be the only thing a marriage is what a healthy marriage is.

I agree.  There are many other factors besides sex, that determine how good a  relationship is.

So true....I was a sex addict...and I still like it....but there does need to be a balance....after sex, what else is there??? Are you friends, can you talk, have a good time together, work together???  I was crazy over sex with my dh and now we're still married but not even friends, don't talk, don't do anything together.....
