Many regard sex as something intrinsic to marriage. Though some still believe that if a couple can get along well without this form of intimacy, then it is not cause for alarm. However, it seems as though the trend points to sexless marriages resulting in unhappy endings.
Even Madonna’s famous marriage to Guy Ritchie ended following 18 sexless months. Judith Steinhart, a clinical sexologist, states that problems in a marriage like a lack of trust, anxiety, financial issues, misunderstandings, pressure from children, all can impact a couple’s sexual patterns.
