Or is sex important in the marriage period?~
Kristina Dzara author and professor at Southern Illinois University, examined the role of sex in marriage and says it depends on three measures of sexuality in the first three to six months of marriage. The frequency of sexual intercourse, sexual satisfaction, and agreement between spouses will and can predict if they will divorce by the 5th year of marriage.
Although there are a lot of factors that can contribute to divorce such as, marital quality, early marriage, cohabitation and so much more. In order to get a better understanding of the effects of sexuality in marriage, she considered many of the following factors:
Does frequency of sexual intercourse matter in terms of couples staying together?
Satisfaction with sex and physical intimacy?
And the effect of a husband’s sexual satisfaction with respect to the prospects of divorce?
The professor concluded, for wives, satisfaction with physical intimacy and marital satisfaction seem to be rolled into one overall factor. Not so for men. When men report being satisfied with their marriage, this reduces their likelihood for divorce, and if they also report being sexually satisfied, then divorce is even more unlikely.
