The Boston Globe spoke with journalist, Iris Krasnow who authored the book “Sex After…Women Share How Intimacy Changes as Life Changes” and Krasnow said there is no accurate statistic that showcases how often a couple should have sex, and realized the sex lives of many couples takes a dive once they say “I do.”
But there’s good news: just because couples are getting caught up with life, doesn’t mean they’re any less happy. One couple interviewed said the intimacy in their marriage has gone due to their child sleeping in their bed, but the affection they show each other has made each other kinder and more sensitive to each other’s feelings.
Another couple said while working full-time, running a household and taking care of their two children can be exhausting, but when they have sex it’s now and event and exciting.
If you’ve ever been in a long-term relationship then you know redundancy sneaks in and sex doesn’t become such a priority. But do you think you could be in a happy marriage where you didn’t have as much sex as you once did?
