Because I make enough- usually- to support one household. I don't make enough to support two. And I don't agree that children are better off with split parents. I have seen many many families with multiple households. While everyone likes to say they are better off I have to say I don't agree. The repercussions are sometimes long in coming, but they are there. Unless there is actual abuse involved, the children are better off if the parents pull up their big boy pants and keep it together.edit on 3/28/2014 by Montana because: (no reason given)

I disagree. I think being sexually active would do more for her self esteem. Also that's completely ignoring the effect that would have on your partners self esteem.
Most women don't respond well to 'spread em' requests.
In marriage or a full blown monogamous relationship, do you have the right to sex?
I'm saying do you have the right to expect sex and terminate the relationship if the other person just isn't willing.

Pretty sure ATS isn't interested in reading about more than 20 years of love, hurt, discussion, counseling, and everything else. What it boils down to is someone is using sex as a weapon. That is never the definition of a good relationship.
There is far too much emphasis placed on sex. Sex SHOULD come from an intimate relationship, not the other way around. Thus the physical act itself has little meaning compared to the bond of the individuals.
