Orientation in the Adult During Bonding


To understand one’s sexual orientation in a marriage, it is commonly known for the husband and wife to confer with one another.  There is no better way than this simple communication between husband and wife.  During the premarital stages of courting and dating, these discussions will begin to take place and a couple will share their understanding of sexual intercourse and family planning, the frequency of intercourse, or the complete abstinence of sex within the marriage.  Some believe there is sexual activity up until their children are born, and thereafter sex is no longer needed.  A couple may agree on intercourse once per month (or possibly per week) but partake very little, or none at all, once the family has been established.  An opinion expressed by U.S. News and World Report is that it is important to maintain an intimate connection with your partner, but you don’t need to have frequent sex “as long as you’re maintaining that connection.”

It is often thought that sexual activity is only considered acceptable within a marriage and premarital and extramarital sex are taboo.  Couples who are dating will refrain from all other encounters to maintain the good faith and trust of their dating partner.  For those seeking a dating relationship, they will confide their intimacy only to the one they have chosen.  The choice of partner may involve a complex interplay of meeting one another’s sought-after needs while also experiencing many things in common.  While many relationships are thought to develop within a common culture, they can also span great distances and the love between a man and woman are said “to know no bounds”.
