    Should denying of sex to your husband / wife be grounds for divorce

    In some laws it is considered as cruelty? What do you think?

    YES! Without sex there can not be a healthy relationship. Also if one person is refusing the other sex on a regular basis (not like a woman who just gave birth denying sex) it is a big sign there is something else wrong. Most likely it is the most important part of the relationship that is messed up. Communication! If you can't communicate or have sex you're doomed!

    Yes. In fact if you are unhappy with your marriage then you have every right to get divorced and find someone who is more compatible with you. Life is a personal journey. Each of us gets to set up our own "deal breakers". You are responsible for your own happiness. Sex is always better with someone who WANTS to have sex with you.
    All we can do is ask for what we want. If our mate doesn't give it to us there are generally two reasons. (a) They don't have it to give. (b) They don't think you are worth the effort to give it  to. Either way if it something you want or need than you are with the wrong person. Your only real choices are if it's "deal breaker" get out! If it's not a "deal breaker", learn to live without.
    Sticking around to beg, plead, negotiate, or make attempts to (change another person) generally leads to frustration on your part and resentment on their part. With over 7 billion people on the planet there is bound to be someone who wants what you want. Opposites may attract in the short run but it's like that attracts like in the long run. Ideally you want a mate who (already is) what you want instead of trying to get someone to change into what you want! Divorce beats cheating any day in my book! http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … ationships

    absolutely. that is one of the reason's i would get a divorce. being like i am, no sex would kill me quickly. one thing i look for in a woman is a high sex drive so if she later cut me off, i would leave her.

    The Puritans considered it to be a matter of grave concern and an offense to the church if either the husband or the wife neglected to meet their partner's needs. The old records are fun to read. I think it is a really poor idea to use sex as a weapon, either by denying it or by demanding it.
