It doesn't kill it but it certainly fluctuates depending on what stage in life you are in.

honeymoon phase = wild weasle time

Add work, school, bills and possibly kids to the mix and its not always possible to do it as much as you did when you were newly married. But its not quantity that counts anyway, its quality

Hmm. Could be true with some married folks, I guess. I've been married for 10 and a half years.

In my opinion (and my husband's, teehee ) at least for us the sex does better and better. Sex has... well, since the very very beginning, been a very large and important part of our relationship. Over time we have become so familiar with each other, so in tune with what makes each other tick and so familiar with our needs and desires, that the level of understanding we achieve through unspoken words in the sexual realm have transgressed out of the bedroom. To me sex is more than the act of screwing, it's an ultimate expression of communication and love.

This doesn't go without saying that there are lulls of sexual activity in marriage. Like everything else, it comes and goes in waves. Sometimes you go for a while without sex, and you get through it. During those times, I think (maybe even subconsciously) we've used the understanding and communication we've learned with each other in the most intimate of situations to carry us through those dry spells. And eventually things come around full circle.

just ended my non-voluntary period of celibacy this afternoon ...

and i'm living out the point i made earlier. it had been a bit, and i was fine; now that it's over, i wonder why i went so long since it's all i can think about right now.

someone needs a steady boyfriend, and quick ...

A coworker of mine is 30 and still a virgin. Celibacy is indeed possible.

Sex is where the family begins! I think it is really important, within wedlock!

I just looked up Celebate, and it says-

Celibate

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Celibate state; celibacy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One who is unmarried, esp. a bachelor, or one bound by vows not to marry.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unmarried; single; as, a celibate state


So is celibate is not getting married, or is it not having sex?

I think the original meaning of the word was unmarried, but now it is most commonly used to mean a person who abstains from sex.

Are you still trapped in the 1950s?

If someone wants to wait until they're married to have sex, that's totally up to them, I don't care, but to make it seem like someone who doesn't is "immoral"...sorry, I'd have to disagree with that one. That's just as much their choice to make as it is for those who wait, neither person's choice is right or wrong.

If you prefer to only have sex once married then good for you. That doesn't mean that anyone who makes a different decision is immoral.

Geez, people, I was not attacking those that have sex before marriage, sorry if you took offense so easily. I would like to clarify that according to the bible that waiting until marriage to have sex is a good moral. If you dont believe the bible disregard this post.

I realize that pressures of life can strain a sex life because of energy levels and time constraints and everything, but I think that even the fact that you want another is a good indicator that you have a healthy sex life.
If you can only fit it in once a week well hell, you better make it a good one

Hmm, anything is possible. so to quote Foray the question is flawed. Of course it's possible, anything is possible.

It's up the the individual. I hope.

Does it count if you masturbate? Cause unless you truly have no desires, it's either that or insanity. Yeah, nevermind.

To be blunt, you can have an orgasm from an inanimate object- you can't get real, true love from one of those. For some people real, true love is necessary before they are comfortable having sex with someone. Maybe their desire for that love is stronger for them than the desire for a temporary good feeling. I think humans are also "hardwired" to want real, true love.

It's a personal decision for each person how they choose to deal w/ sex and their sexual desires.
