I read an interesting article recently on Huffington Post comparing the number of times women in happy marriage have sex with the number of times that women in unhappy marriages have sex. Not surprisingly, those in happy marriages have sex much more frequently than those in unhappy marriages — 11 times a month versus 4 times a month.
I suppose this is not surprising. Of course happy marriages breed more sex than unhappy marriages. The numbers did surprise me a little. I am surprised that those who consider their marriages unhappy still have sex four times a month. I would have thought the number would be lower. Once a week seems pretty high if you are unhappy with your husband.
The numbers for happily married couples – 11 times a month – seem more in line with my expectations. This works out to 2-3 times per week; or 3-4 times a week for those who do not have sex during the week of their period. For a happy couple with a busy life, this feels about right.
No big point or relegation here… just an interesting stat to share.
