Is it possible to have a perfect marriage when the sex life is far from perfect?

Sexual chemistry (& physics & geography) :) is vital to a marriage. However, in a relationship if the couple is at odds regarding the frequency, the variety, the grammar, the syntax, the vocabulary...... can it still script a fairy tale marriage?


A perfect marriage involves some element of openness, communication, compromise and acceptance. And these values make for a great sex life too. So if a marriage is truly perfect, I don't see how the sex shouldn't be. It's about telling your partner your likes and dislikes, and finding out theirs.

No. Married life without sex is just like having biryani without salt (especially to the partner who is deprived). It is necessary for both partners to have equal interest in sex. Couples should be able to know the emotional and physical needs of each other. Men can express their physical needs easily. But for women, it is not easy. Most of the women feel embarrassed and shy to express their feelings and needs. Sex is an important part of married life, if not essential. This beautiful act of making love, among married couples, should not be restricted only to a baby making procedure.

let's take it one bite at a time, marriage without masala is like Mumbai without local trains; life less. The idea of sex needs to be presented with a different wraps.
