Say you had been dating someone and were edging into more serious territory with your relationship. They seem great and well-suited for you. Then, before you become exclusive/official, they tell you they're sex-repulsed. Sex itself and other sexual activities (oral, hand jobs, etc.) repulse them. Would you be able to enter a serious relationship knowing sexual aspects would be off the table? Or are the sexual parts too important to you to give up, even if you liked them?
Note: Sex outside of the relationship would be out of the question.

Yes, I'd be open to a sexless boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. If it was like marriage, I don't think I could go sexless personally. I would be understanding of something wanting or not wanting sex before marriage, but if they were repulsed by sex so much that even marriage wouldn't make it ok for them, it'd probably be a big enough turn off I couldn't do it.
I am open to whatever my SO wants before marriage. (If she wants sex or sexless, so be it) After marriage though, I would want sex in any situation to be frank.1

Nope, definitely wouldn't work for me.
Sex is a big part of a happy relationship in my opinion. You can't have anyone closer than being inside you, or them accepting you for you at your literal barest.
What makes being in a sexless relationship romantic? How would it differ from having a really close friend?0
