Seriously, this thought has always creeped me out about arranged marriages. This is such a major risk! And it's not just about sexual compatibility, it's also about sexual hygiene, STDs, etc..one must feel free to be able to discuss all of these issues beforehand and quite openly..
One doesn't. It's really like diving in the dark. But what can help is talking and helping the other person understand as the marriage progresses. If there is attraction and emotional bonding, sexual chemistry can be worked upon, in my opinion.
That is one of the major drawbacks of an arranged marriage. But, then you have to explore your partner and yourself in the bed. What he likes and what he doesn't and what do you want from him and what you don't. Anyone can be physically compatible if you let them be. So, yeah it's a journey with a stranger which will start at night and you have to hold each other's 'hand' to know each other better by the time morning comes. ;)

Why are older women falling on Younger guys for fulfillment of their desires ? Somehow they are often not sexually attracted to their husbands, desire is temporarily rekindled when they suspect their husbands are unfaithful, are contemplating infidelity, or when their husbands show signs of moving on. The vacuum created due to work pressures between them. Sometimes women married for couple of years to the same person have a stronger temptation and they go in for a bit of a change in their lifestyle to experiment their libidos. Life is temporary , so let us give it a try is the motto . Infidelity is no more a sin . Of Course we are seeing from ancient scriptures . The Question is " Is there something beyond sex and lust ?
