How long could you stay in a sexless relationship/ marriage?

Before you couldn't take it anymore and decided to leave?

I don't know. My husband and I have spent up to 2 years away from each other and I survived that long without it lol.

If it was for a medical reason, a month.

Same here! I married him for his heart, not his penis.

Quoting carrielenc:

I would not leave or stray, my vows said "in sickness and in health" its not all about sex. If it was me not able he would stay, would your SO stay?

Not very long.  Sex produces a hormone called oxytocin which emotionally bonds you.

Hubby and I have a very strong bond.

If it was just sexless, but everything else was still great (we still had fun and communicated and spent quality time together) then I would stay no matter what. If DH was paralyzed from the waist down and could not perform sexually, I would stand by him. If our marriage was sexless AND we started treating each other like strangers, I would leave but only if we had exhausting any and all effort to get our marriage back on track.

As long as he was still faithful, I would stay for life.  There are so many more types of intimacy than sex to feel connected. If the sex was that important to me, we would use toys. But our vows were in sickness & in health, good times & bad & I will fight to keep them. If we had sex everyday & suddenly he suffered an accident or health problem & could no longer have sex, I wouldn't leave. Why would him being healthy but not wanting sex be an excuse?

If there was affection but no sex I would stay as long as possible.
If not, my marriage would be over. I'm not my husbands roommate.
