Is Sex Important in a Relationship? 12 Things to Consider!

Updated: Nov 27, 2020

Yes? No? Maybe?

Is sex important in a romantic relationship? There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this.

Everyone’s different, and what’s important for some may not be at all important for others.

It ultimately depends on your personal beliefs, physical desires, and the nature of your relationship.


Sex isn’t necessary, per se

Many people have happy, fulfilling, healthy romantic relationships without having sex with their partners (or only having sex with their partners once in a while).

There are many reasons why people don’t want to, or don’t, have sex. This may include:

  • having a low libido (also known as “sex drive”)

  • living with an underlying medical condition, such as chronic pain

  • wanting to date for a longer period of time before having sex

  • being unmarried and wanting to abstain from sex before marriage

However, this doesn’t mean that the relationship will be unhealthy. And it certainly isn’t a sign that your partner doesn’t love or value you!

The bottom line? Sexual activity isn’t necessary for a healthy relationship.
