TRANSCRIPT: 

It’s been said if you never want to have sex again, get married. Sex is one of the most contentious issues in marriage today, second only to finances.

There are many married couples that have not had sex for months, even years, and that’s okay as long as they’re OK with it and happily married. The problem arises when one person in the relationship wants sex and the other doesn’t.

According to a national newspaper survey of approximately 10,000 respondents, mostly married men, 75% were satisfied in their relationship but more than 50% were dissatisfied with their sex lives.

We’re having sex — don’t get me wrong — we’re just having sex at the wrong time and with the wrong people. I’ll get to that later. We’re having sex before we get married 10 years on average. So we are effectively in a long-term relationship and potentially quite sexually bored before we even mess up the marital bed, and that has its consequences. Most brides today do not have sex on their wedding nights, and 50% of men would not have married their spouse had they known their marriage was going to be sexless.
