#SexlessRelationship - Can a relationship survive without sex?
The kind of relationship we’ll be discussing in this article is the romantic relationship. Romantic relationship is one where two people are sexually involved. Sexual involvement doesn’t really mean “sex” but rather romance, love and affection. Sex is however the most-argued, most-debated and most-talked about topic in relationship. And for this article we’ll be discussing about Sex and if a relationship can survive without it.
Well, a relationship CAN survive without sex and at the same time a relationship WOULD NOT survive without sex. It all depends on the people involved in the relationship. The players of the game called relationship will determine if it will or will not. According to a sex survey carried out by cosmopolitan magazine in 2009, the major reason why men and women cheat is due to the fact that they don’t have satisfying sex life at home or in a relationship.
Relationship that would survive without sex might not be for a long time. Maybe the people involved are planning on having sex when they get married. But how far are they from getting married? In most cases, a relationship can survive without sex for few years but likely not for a longer period. In my opinion, physical intimacy is very important in modern day relationship. It would have been a different story, if we’re in the 80’s or 90’s, most of our parent never had sex till they got married.
Sexual urges are biologically natural and everyone should have one. Just like we have the urge to eat, sleep e.t.c. Expect if the person involved has gone through a traumatic experience, which makes them lose the urge for sex or something else happened along the line.
So in summary, Love is the foundation of a relationship but sex is like the house that sits on the foundation and keeps it going. But then it’s just my opinion, what do you think? Can a relationship survive without sex? Please let us know your opinion in the comment section below. Thanks.
