Resident Christian Marriage Advice Writer at Christian Mag Admits Some Christian Marriages are Sexless
This is oh so funny. 😆 The promise you are made as a Christian single is that if you save sex for marriage, sex will be great, and it will be frequent. But it turns out some marriages are sexless.

The extent of the research and the methodology employed far surpassed any study before it. Published by the University of Chicago in 1994, the “public” version of the report was provocatively titled Sex in America. The scientific version carried the duller title of The Social Organization of Sexuality.
Though all sex studies are controversial, this one did its homework in its attempt to avoid research flaws and to get as true a representation of America as possible.
Trained workers interviewed 3,432 scientifically randomly selected American men and women across America between the ages of 18 and 59.
One unexpected finding was that sex is not happening as much as most folks thought. The research indicates “about a third have sex with a partner at least twice a week, a third have sex with a partner a few times a month, and the rest have sex with a partner a few times a year or have no sexual partners at all.”
How do those numbers change if you leave out singles and consider only those that are married? It seems that 20% of married couples between the ages of 18 and 59 have sex with each other ten times or less per year.
Another 15% have sex with each other about twice a month or less. The “ten time or less” couples are often referred to as no-sex marriages (or sexless marriages) and the “about twice a month” group as low-sex marriages. In this article, we’ll combine them into the term sexless marriages.
Why should sexless marriages concern Christians? First, there is a Biblical imperative that should prevent Christian couples from having sexless marriages, but they exist anyway. Second, ample research exists to show that marital satisfaction and sexual satisfaction rise and fall together.
