    Please rate the important of sex in a relationship other than reproduction? Married or unmarried.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being the highest score)

    The primary difference between relationship love Vs (paternal love, sibling love, and friendship love) is our romantic/sexual desire for our mate.

    If you remove sex from a relationship you will have a "great friendship". A sexless marriage is (companionship/roommates) with the same last name. There is no such thing as a (monogamous friendship). We don't call it cheating to have more than one friend or any other type of relationship. It's romance, passion, and sexual intimacy that takes a relationship to a new level.

    Having said that, not everyone has the same "sex drive" therefore it is (Very Important) to marry someone who is "Naturally Compatible" with you. To do otherwise is asking for marital problems. I would rank the importance of sex/passion at an 8. One man's opinion! :-)

      Sex may not make it better, no sex will make it worse.  A marriage with no sex is not a marriage and adultery (cheating) is not  then applicable. But understanding when sex is off the agenda, e.g health, work etc  is also important. 9/10 then falling

    I think its very important! Unless you and your mate have completely different preferences and don't mind each other running around (hey-- it happens! Rare but possible!), you need to be compatible in bed.
