As long as both parties are mutual and happy they can do what they find fit. I don't think you need sex while in love, but nothing is wrong with doing it either.

I would think it would be highly difficult to maintain a healthy relationship over the long-term without it. It is probably more fair to say "a small percentage of people can completely last without it."

I mean...yeah. I'd bet that for most of us you're kidding yourself if you think you can go 100% without it and still be happily together for your lives. Is it absolutely required? No, I'd agree it's not, but it really does help you build your relationship and keep yourselves together.

It saddens me that everyone places such a premium on sex. I'd much prefer a relationship that is based on mutual respect, friendship and love over physical desire. So, no, I do not believe it is that important.

It can be, but it doesn't have to be. Sex is indeed a very intimate act, but it's not the only symbol of intimacy a couple can have.

It depends really, cause it doesn't have to be
even though most I know would say yes to such a question.
I personally don't think it should be looked at so importantly,
a relationship can stand strong in various other forms of intimacy.
A strong "friendship" like bond could count for it.
Trust, mutual respect, etc. (^w^)

Eh, I view sex as being kinda like paper money: It only has as much value as the individual and society as a whole place upon it.

It really depends on the couple.

So the general answer would have to be no. I mean, many couples simply don't have much of a sex drive (either one or both of them). Then again, many couples might have lots of sex but otherwise not be very close. Personally, I think that each relationship has to be judged on its own merits - and if you feel that intimacy has to be tied to sex in order to be the most meaningful, then hopefully you can find somebody else who fully agrees with that sentiment.

Nope sex doesn't symbolize a couples intimacy.

Love does imo.

A intimate couple can go without sex sure sex is pleasurable and something you only have with someone you love (usually) but it's not important.

One of the most important and symbolism of a relationship in my opinion is love and trust.

I could easily go without sex due to the fact i have low testosterone and next to no sex drive.

Honestly i could happily go without sex and have for many relationships even though most of them only lasted 3 years due to them cheating -.-

I think people put to much emphasis into sex as a whole it's easy to go without it and if you can't keep your relationship together and keep yourselves together and happy without sex then ...i'm sad to say it but you should just move on.

yeah make it into the "bundle" insted of push it away when you know it will be there (saying do it when you both feel it, but if you will just go like rampage don't complain if you are left with 100 babies)

cheesy but, I think looking each other in the eyes while cuddling is probably the answer for me. Though I've never had this happen and I am also a virgin, and I've never dated anymore, so my opinion isn't really valid.
