    Ours is kind of below average right now because I have some health issues.  It’s usually only about twice a week.  He wants it more often than I do.

    I feel that mine is stronger too. He works long hours and when he comes home, he wants to crash. I can’t help but to feel a little weird about it…I actually question his attraction to me…which is crazy but I can’t help it. Do you feel the same way?

    lately it is barely 1x/week, but I’m hoping it doesn’t stay that way!  I’ve been having some health issues, that are thankfully getting better!  Also, we will start TTC in Dec, so we’ll try to spice it up!

    We’re pretty average most of the time, although when we’re both stressed or not feeling well the number goes down.

    Our frequency just depends on how we’re feeling.  In all honesty, during the week is not when we have sex but on the weekends we go a little crazy.  I’d say between 2-3 a week.

    Kudos to whoever is having sex 6-7 times a week!  HOLY COW!

    Barrettsgirl omg we so need to talk. Same issue here, his come-home-early days are 7.30 pm and when it’s late it’s like midnight or after. When he has any free time all he wants to do is crash or read…I used to try nagging to get it up to 2x a week but he would barely make it and…and tired sex is not enjoyable at all. 

    We haven’t even been married that long yet and talked so many times, I’m sure he understands and he’s really trying to do his best so I guess I just have to accept that…I’m just trying to convince myself that quality is better than quantity…I’m so jealous of other couples though!

    We try to be together at least once a day, we make it a priority.  Of course life gets busy but honestly we usually find the time for it at least before bed but sometimes when we wake up too.  Thankfully my little one’s a good sleeper and we have locks on our bedroom door 😉  We’ve been together over a two years and living together for nine months (although he lived upstairs from me before he moved in so being under the same roof made it easy to see each other all the time).

    We have had our sexual up and downs over the course of the relationship, but we agree that a minimum of 2 x per week, ideally 3 x per week, and we are both happy campers. I work 12 hour shifts with nursing (so forget it, I am covered in hospital germs and am a whole new level of exhausted after one of those) so sex is generally on my days off or the “in between day” between working days and nights.

    I try not to get to caught up in the so call “norms” and “averages”. I have lived with my Fiance for 5 years, been together for 6, and I think as long as two people can come to a mutally satisfactory level of sex, then you are doing okay!

    Before kids, we were more active, healthy, had more free time, and had more privacy. After kids, it’s not necessarily about “quanity,” we focus more on “quality.” There’s sex, and there’s making love. We try to have that balance.
