  • Yes. Infidelity and $$$ are the 2 biggest reasons for divorce. 70% of divorces are filed by the woman; many have new partners before moving on. I suggest you read WOMAN"S INFIDELITY by Michelle Langley a 3X divorcee. It's a sad, cautionary tale that shows you point by point who women divorce men these days. It shows how they separate them from their homes, children and $$$. It's a great HOW TO GUIDE if you want to be a POS.

  • Probably, if you include caring and tenderness as an aspect of sexuality, yes, it's probably the basic cause of most divorces. Not infidelity, but the lack of mutual understanding and compassion...

  • Lack of sex in a marriage could be a cause of it.
    So can lack of communication about it or communication in general.
    I think your question is a little to general to give a good answer to it.

  • Yes it is. 90% of the friends and family report to me that sex slows down after marriage and stops completely after kids. DO. NOT. GET. MARRIED. PERIOD.

  • Yes, after 5 years of no sex, mom got a divorce. Rather then marriage counseling when the problem started.

  • It would make sense. I don't see how a person who rolls over and cries continuously after sex could keep that up for more than two years.
    That person is me...

  • Less sex in marriages if don't deliberately are one of the common causes that fuel infidelity, which later leads to divorce. The main reason this happens is often those who hate sex with their spouses, resentment because they feel 'trapped' in a marriage, and because of lust, immaturity, and selfish BEFORE marriage. If they were sexually active and weren't virgins before marriage this is one of the leading causes besides finances, lack of communication, different views, mistrust, jealousy, and intentions.

  • No, you can give a man all the sex in the world and some will still cheat. It doesn't not matter. a lot of men just get tired and bored of the same women and want something different, like a thrill.
