sex in a long term relationship...

(1/3) > >>

OK, many of you will laugh at this, but...

My hubby and I have been together 18+ years.
During our first year together we were watching TV and someone (don't remember who) said, " If you put a penny in a jar every time you have sex with your partner for the first year, and then take a penny out of the jar every time you have sex after the first year, you will never run out of pennies from the jar."

We laughed. :)
18 years later...
not so funny. :-[

Comments? ;D
(those people under 35 and those who have not been in a long term relationship can continue with your giggles.) ;D

PS- We did have a GREAT first year!! ;)

Sex is the road you ride on but love, commitment, security, love, yeah I said it already, is the destination.   

In a long-term relationship, most couples need to actively focus on keeping up (no pun intended) their sexual activity.  Otherwise, for many (most?) people, the familiarity of being with someone for a long time tends to make sex with them less exciting and interesting.  Also, for many people, their sex drive seems to fall off with age (though that's certainly not true for everyone).  If you are unhappy with your sex life, the two of you need to talk about it and work at changing that.

Thanks Buckmark,

I/we don't seem to have much of a problem with the way things are with our sex life.
Something reminded me of that quote today and made me laugh once again.
(although for much different reasons than I was laughing 18 years ago. ???)
Just thought to share the story of the penny jar. :)
I should have made this more clear in my original post.
