Sex is crucial for the health of any marriage

According to bestselling author and relationship expert Tracey Cox, 10 percent of all married couples between the ages of 36 and 55 never have sex. Just as startling, 11 percent only get between the sheets once a year, while 32 percent go a little more frequently at once a month. While speaking with The Stir, Cox said that couples who do not make the effort to be intimate with each other on a regular basis risk damaging their marriage and could even end up getting a divorce.

Sex is such a vital part of a healthy marriage, which is why Cox says it is important to sleep with your significant other frequently. There are a number of benefits to having sex often, aside from the obvious ones. Sleeping together will make you feel more connected as a couple, increase the feeling of being loved and cared for, as well as boosting your immune system while decreasing your stress levels. Cox says there is another reason why being intimate frequently will help your marriage.

"Stop having sex with each other and you risk both of you wanting to have sex with someone else," Cox told The Stir. If you are not getting physical with your partner, that could increase the changes of somebody having an affair, which could spell the total collapse and end of your marriage.

The key to keeping things hot and heavy in the bedroom? According to Cox, it's simple – try things you haven't before. Simply experimenting with a new arousal gel or position you've never experienced together will keep things fresh, which means you will both enjoy the time you have together in bed.
