If both partners are OK with this type of relationship, it doesnt call for concern. But often, one or both partners become frustrated or hurt by the loss of physical intimacy and sex. A sexless marriage is defined as a marriage with little or no sexual activity between the partners.
What causes lack of intimacy in a relationship?
For example, talking to a partner excessively about work, being away from home, having little time or energy after working long hours, or work interfering in personal time (like checking work emails in bed) can all contribute to a lack of intimacy in a relationship.
Can lack of physical touch ruin relationships?
With physical intimacy being one of the ways for a partner to communicate feelings, its absence can cause a void that can create a barrier over time. Over time, it can make the partners experience abandonment issues.
