I agree - I think it's a relationship killer.  Men like the thrill of the chase.  If you take away the 'hunt' and you don't make a man work hard to get you, he won't cherish you as much. 

Even if you end up staying together and getting married, he may always wish (even subconsciously) that he would have had more of a challenge to get you.

Well, my parents had sex the first day they met and have been married for thirty six years. I had sex the first night with hubby (he was supposed to be a one night stand) and we just celebrated our seventeenth wedding anniversary, with many to come.

It depends on the couple. I'm sure it's a relationship killer most of the time, but if there's chemistry, and he's looking for a relationship, then it doesn't matter.

I believe that sex should be between people who care deeply about each other and you can't feel that way about someone in the first month you know them. Not possible, I don't care what anyone says.

I have a 6 month rule when it comes having sex.
