We have marital relations once a week, usually on a Friday night. Is this normal? I know everyone is prob different. We have four kids hard to find us time

When I was married it was every day. Now I am single, but my bf and I don't get much time alone so maybe once or twice a month right now. It sucks.

Fairly normal as far as I know.  When you have several kids there's just a lack of time.

Quoting alaskadreams:

I don't think so, we were more active when childless though and with each child our intimacy has got less and less. I really want to make an effort to make it more often and special :-)

Three kids, been married nearly 11 years and we have relations about once a month lately.  It ebbs and flows.  We are on kind of a dry spell lately, but we were very amorous for awhile.  Eh, I'm not concerned.

Normal is relative, if you are happy with the frequency then it's all good! It's not the number of times that matters, it's the quality.

We are once-a-weekers too but it would be more if I didn't have an annoying autoimmune disorder called lichen planus. Its a skin condition and one of the areas it affects is my vulva - making it very sore, red and itchy after sex for a few days/sometimes a week. The skin is very fragile and cracks during sex.. its an awesome condition let me tell u ;)We would totally have way more sex if I didn't have this...

Do you mean SEX? We have sex once a week if we are lucky. We have one child, but 2 busy jobs. We usually have it when we feel like we haven't had it in awhile and need to re-connect. Sex for me has lost its spark so I can go without it for a whole month and not be bothered by it.

Well, I know that DH and I are -not- 'normal' with this one.  We have sex almost daily - sometimes more, sometimes less.  We have 5 kids but have always made our relationship a priority and sex is one of the many ways we stay connected.
