conclusion is pretty clear: The happiest among us are those
who are happily married, and having good sex at least weekly.
here is the big question: Is it the great marriage that leads
to great sex? Or, is it great sex that leads to a great marriage?
While more research is being done around this question it
does seem a bit like the chicken and the egg.
College economist David Blachflower and University of Warwick
in England economist Andrew Oswald wrote their report after
studying 16,000 people. Their findings indicated that sex
“enters so strongly (and) positively in happiness equations”
that they estimate that if a couple in a sexless marriage
(10 times a year or less) were to increase their frequency
of intercourse to weekly, that would equate to the amount
of happiness generated by getting an additional $50,000 in
income for the average American.
course, it is more than getting it on… it is about enjoying
having sex with your partner.
my conclusion is that those of us who enjoy having weekly
sex with our partner experience more happiness in life, and
that happiness compares to about a $50,000 boost in income!
there are real reasons to address your relationship, especially
if it is a sexless marriage. Your lack of sexual desire, or
your partner’s, should be addressed because of the sheer
happiness that can be yours if you are in a satisfied and
sexy marriage. So have that talk with yourself, and/or with
your partner, and apply some hopeful solutions.
