As our newsfeeds become inundated with engagement announcements over
the festive season, one can’t help but think of married life and all
that entails – such as how it changes your sex life.
Psychotherapist M Gary Neuman conducted research on a mixture of
400 happily and unhappily married women to determine just how much sex
was normal once you’ve tied the knot.
Neuman found that those unhappy in their marriage tended to have sex
three to four times a month, while the happily married had sex on
average 11 times a month.
Talking to Business Insider,
the psychotherapist revealed that marriages tend to exit the rosy
period somewhere after two years of being together, when the
relationship can become stale due to communication becoming largely
about dealing with obligations.
