    It can happen .. especially right after giving birth and the weeks following … and sometimes after a 1st birth it can change some women (there is a name for it).

    So, not the truth. I was married for ten years... what leads to no sex is the break of trust and the other seeking others for sex. Know who you are marrying and try your best to make sure they aren't a cheater. Treat her like she is your one and only and make sure she is your one and only. Don't seek other women and don't make her feel like you don't value her. Make sex enjoyable for you both and make sure both of you are enjoying it.

    There's a period of time after every birth where vaginal sex if off limits for medical reasons. This differs depending on the manner of birth, either an episiotomy was required, etc. Then there are a few months where both parents are generally too exhausted unless they have a night nanny. But most people get back to the regular routine within months after a typical birth. If a couple never resumes having sex after the birth of a child there's something wrong and they'll need to seek counseling, medical intervention or just take a long vacation together to reignite the spark.

    Romance after marriage is a myth

    you cannot recreate the first kiss first date first sex

    the proof is there is no way to please women - and yes many men are jackasses,,, but you married him WHY?

    why get married to the jackass if sex is not the reason

    and yes you did find the answer the real question was it in time or are you one of the walking dead

    while there are many good women .. that does not mean they are good to be married to

    and there are many good men again they too may not be good to be married to

    the question we need to have answered first before we marry > and love is not it. WHY ARE YOU GETTING MARRIED ?

    my wife love her sisters her mom her dad her nephews and nieces and cousins and even her dog.

    Again is there a difference? sad to say often it comes to fiscal support and manual labor for her projects not lust

    I can cook clean and do all the stuff my wife does,,, and better if just what and how I desire it

    sex company and more sex is the difference

    If we are buddies OK ... I have someplace to go .... why are women so upset confused when he leaves and some other woman wants him sexually (for awhile)

    Yes. A lot of times the wife isn't showing much sexual affection to her husband, period. Look, we all know what happens when guys don't get sex. Especially in a marriage, where it is an expectation of the guy. The lack of sex explains the 50% divorce rate, it explains the 60-70% of guys who tag sideass during their marriage, the 30-some % who are tagging sideass throughout their marriage, the 15-20% of husbands who develop a healthy porn habit, the 10-15% who become dead-soul shells, with half of those drinking themselves to death.

    A study in 2000 showed results of 50% of couples reporting sex satisfaction as poor to not very good. You can bet that comes from all the guys in the couples. Only 20% of those couples wanted help - that is the effect of the wife, thinking that no sex is just fine. Here's the kickintheass from the study: the increase in the perceived shittyness of the relationship rose by 2000% after the first birth - from 1% of couples to 20% of couples. That increase is the effect of guys not getting enough sex. The reason it's not 50% is that some of those guys were tagging sideass, and others were developing their porn habit.

    Yes, A LOT of wives do not have enough sex

    When a woman has a child, Mother Nature provides that her hormone levels drop so she puts her focus on the child. This doesn't mean there is no sex.

    Most of it depends upon how the man treats her and most men are clueless about how to treat women in the first place.

    Women shouldn't be having sex for several weeks after childbirth. They need to heal. After that, it's up to the man to stop acting like aJackass, and to take her out on proper dates and show her some romance

      Once you get married, all that dating crap is out the window, right? Especially after childbirth.
