Is it wrong for husbands to sexually neglect their wife...but still expect commitment and faith??Page 10 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Actually it is in the Bible, couldn't cite you where but the ideal is for the man and woman to sexually satisfy each other so that neither is denied, it is a sin to not treat each others needs appropriately for the individuals involved. No one is suppose to enter into a marriage where each is not going to fully care for the other, etc., it's not just about you better do this or that, it's about figuring this all out with a person before making a commitment and joining in marriage. A bit hard without having premarital sex but certainly it can be done by making sure who you are with and what you are doing also. In Christianity it's not about making a mistake and sticking it out, it's about not making the mistake in the first place. You don't marry badly then expect things to get better or to suffer through, you make a conscience choice to begin with to marry the right person.

Here ya go: 1 Corinthians 7:2-5

"Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency"

No it doesn't condone rape. Selfish people use the whatever they want (ie: The Bible) to justify what they want. Big difference.

Would it be OK to sexually neglect a wife if she gains 100 pounds and looks like a beached whale and has lost all sex appeal? Yeah, I know. The female mob squad are jumping right now saying "What about a man who gains 100 pounds". Neither case is good. If there is no more sex appeal, how do you avoid neglecting someone sexually?

Maybe your husband has some kind of erectile dysfunction or something. Maybe you should try to talk with him and find out what really is happening. Maybe you need marriage counseling which could include the sexual problems that are going on. If you really love him give him a chance. But I do have to agree sex is a very important part of a relationship. Just sounds like you need o talk with a therapist and get the communication started and find out where the problem is.

If you don't want it, that's your choice, if I want it, that's mine. If I cannot get it from you, I'm not cheating.


If you stay in the relationship...and find sex elsewhere...well, I gotta say it's cheating...imo...if someone is the the point of looking for sex elsewhere..then they should end the relationship and move on...jmo.

But if this happens I can guarantee there is WAYYY more going on than no nookie. And more than likely both have a part in whatever break down is happening.

Gotta agree with those statements. Lack-o-nookie is usually a symptom, not a cause.
