    Wow, I can’t imagine daily… I don’t even see my husband on a daily basis.  He’s on call every 3rd night, so night #1 he spends 36 hours in the hospital, night #2 he gets out post-call in the early afternoon and goes home and goes straight to bed (so he’s long asleep hours before I get home from work), and then night #3 Iget home, start cooking immediately, we eat dinner, and then he is in bed by 8:30.

    And then in June he moves several states away and we have a long-distance marraige.

    People always make little comments about how terrible our marriage must be because we don’t have more time "together" and our marriage is going to fail as a result — honestly, it really makes me want to punch them.  I married him for him, not because I felt the need to get laid every day.  If anything, it makes me feel MORE secure in my marriage because I know our love is far more significant than just physical attraction.

    Even though we are technically newlyweds, we have been intimate for five years, so we’ve cooled off a bit, which I think is perfectly natural.

    It was daily when we first met, then about every other day.  Now we’ve cooled off a bit to about 2 or 3 times a week, more if we go out of town.

    Funny – after reading Miss Cheese’s post, I thought about asking the same question!

    For the first year we were intimate it was seriously every single time we saw each other (about 4 times a week) now that we’ve lived together for a year it is at 2 or 3 times a week.

    Right now, it’s once or twice a week, because we don’t live together yet and with work schedules and all, once or twice a week is all we see each other.  We’re moving in together this summer, and I think it’ll be a little more often after that. 🙂

    juliejulie, you should punch those people. LoL. Kidding. My parents, for most of their marriage, worked opposite shifts. Seeing each other very little, I think, actually helped their marriage. They do have date night once a week (they’ve done this since I can remember) and have been happily married for 30 years. We joke that once they retire and are together ALL the time shiznit is going to hit the fan.

    since we bought a house and have been working all weekend, every weekend and a few hours during the week, twister is merely once or twice a week.

    i suppose the every day, sometimes twice routine we had when we first got together had to die off sometime. i sort of hoped it would wait until we had been married a while. twister really helps keep the "nesting" weight off you.

    We mostly "play twister" on the weekends because my husband has to leave for work at 6:30 in the morning and doesn’t get home till 6:30 in the evening- so he’s usually really tired during the week.  But we make up for it on the weekends.

    chemcopity I hear ya. When we were together in the beginning it’d probably be twice a day. Now its maybe 1-2/week. My fiance definitely feels self conscious about it. He’s joked around saying I must be playing twister with someone else. I feel bad sometimes but work really does get in the way of play time.  There’s got to be a way to feel more motivated to play.

    We play ‘Twister’ daily, but we’re not newlyweds or even married! (And therefore, I didn’t vote so I don’t mess up your poll ) We have been together 2 years though, so it’s not like we’re in the "just met" phase.

    boy, I was a little dissapointed by this poll, but I have to rememeber that twister is not a new thing for a lot of newlyweds.

    Because I’m waiting, I’m hoping for daily for at least the first year if not two years!  I’ll wait to vote though, because I’m still 4.5 months away.  But I’d imagine it’s going to be more than that for the first few months!

    Wow, I am really surprised by the results so far. My answer was much more normal than I thought it would be!

    Im not a twister fan… yup that right you read right. And its not cuz of MR.F it was like this before. He knew and married me – so its no surprise. We do it several times a month – if were lucky on a weekly basis…
