Since we’re on the subject of sex and relationships, let’s test our morale stance.
Two days after last week’s road trip another friend of mine lamented that a good girlfriend of hers, who had been ‘happily married’ for twenty years but hadn’t had sex with her husband in eight years, was now having an affair. My friend was devastated. She had known this couple for as long as they’d been together and felt close to both of them. Now she felt betrayed and very sad.
As I listened to her talk through her feelings about the situation, the obvious became apparent. How many roaming romances are because of sex – or lack of it? I’d guess all of them. Sexual attraction is an undeniable force. Sometimes that force can sweep in when you least expect it, so does that mean you should follow? Again, it’s a debated issue. Some say that the chances of two people staying together forever is next to impossible, and when it happens, it is often because they’ve been through some sort of drama – be it a tryst or temporary separation or something. Some say that you can love more than one person in a lifetime. And some feel they can only be in a committed relationship, and have zero tolerance for messing around.
Sex is a hot issue. What’s your stance?
