Barring pregnancy or any other health-related issues, barring cheating as well.
I know it's wrong to punish your partner by withholding sex- but it's also hard to feel like wanting sex if you're very upset with your partner.
So under what circumstances do you think that you can understand WHY your partner would refuse to have sex with you for an extended period of time?
This was inspired by a dinner I went to with my parents and their friends. Apparently most of them have been sexless since the 90s. The women denied their husbands sex because they were so frustrated by how careless their husbands had been with money. One woman's husband sold her jewelry without asking her first. The women were just overwhelmed by false promises. And they no longer felt sexual towards their husbands. The men, on the other hand, felt that regardless of the situation, sex is part of marriage and it shouldn't have been taken out of the equation... But how can you have sex with someone who keeps on lying to you and disappointing you? The lack of sex for the men, I think, just made them more resentful and less considerate of their wives. So... it's a vicious circle, in my opinion.

I think it's terrible and unhealthy for the relationship as well for the children if there are any, not that they want to see their parents having sex, but it leaves a mark in their grownup lives later in life.
A marriage should be about understanding, support and lots of affection to one another, there should be a balance if you want a successful marriage, just like everything else in life.0
