Just finihed reading the <url=http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum4/HTML/002856.html>Celibacy of the Year award</url> thread. Ow.
In order to fight off depression and paint another side of the picture (just so that the single folks out there don’t all take vows of unmatrimony) I wanted to solicit responses from people who have happy, rewarding, smack the headboard, scream like a banshee sex lives with their spouse or long-term SO. For myself, after 5 years of dating/cohabitating followed by 5 years of marriage, my wife still rocks my world regularly. Wouldn’t go back to the single life if Salma Hayak and Catherine Zeta-Jones were at the door looking for a third. (Would have to think about it though. . .I mean, damn, I’m only human). I’m not bragging, well maybe a little – but mostly I am just grateful and delighted. How about the rest of you? Anyone care to second me on the bliss of a good marriage?
The best lack all conviction
The worst are full of passionate intensity.
