A relationship where sex is the glue holding it together, won’t last. You’re in bed only a minimal amount of time in a day. If you can’t get along outside of the bedroom, then there’s not enough compatibility between the couple to sustain the relationship.
Intimacy is very important in a relationship because it bonds and connects the couple, but respect, communication, compatibility and compromise are also needed to hold it together. A passionless relationship won’t be fulfilling when there isn’t any physical attraction or sexual chemistry.
When sexual compatibility is all you have in a relationship, the passion will fade in time and if you don’t have anything else in common, you will drift apart. Being friends as well as being lovers may be enough for the relationship to last despite the lack of sexual chemistry.
Sex is the most important thing to most men. Usually a man’s main focus is on sex, while a woman’s main focus is on love. When the sex is great and the compatibility is there, generally that can be the recipe for a happy, healthy and lasting relationship.
