There are a lot of things that can lead to the demise of a relationship. Things like lying, cheating and different life goals can all lead to couples breaking up. A common question in regards to relationship is: Can bad sex lead to a breakup? This is a complicated dilemma that many couples face and it is easy to understand why. Imagine that you get in a relationship with someone and everything is perfect. They're honest. They make you laugh. They have the same goals and aspirations for the future as you do. Then you find that you're just not sexually compatible at all! Is this grounds for breaking up? Does a bad sex life cancel out all of the good things about the relationship? We're discussing it below!
In most cases, we would say that bad is a perfectly good reason to break up. Sex is an important part of a romantic relationship for most people. If the sex lacks intimacy or the two of you are not sexually compatible, then your relationship is going to be lacking. You may not mind it sometimes and you may think that you can get past it, but it will ultimately take a toll on your relationship. You or your partner may end up feeling sexually deprived or unsatisfied and seek sexual gratification from someone else, which will end your relationship. In a healthy romantic relationship, both partners should feel happy and fulfilled in all aspects of the relationship, including sex.
With that said, there are a few instances in which relationships can withstand bad sex. While these relationships are rare, they do work for some people. This may include a relationship between two people who do not have sexual desire. They may love each other deeply and all other aspects of the relationship may be perfect, but they do not have sex at all and it is no problem for them. Sex is not an essential part of life for every single person. When these people get into relationships with other people who do not need sex, they may be able to make it work based on the other aspects of the relationship.
All in all, it depends on what you and your partner both need in a relationship! To determine whether or not your sexual incompatibility is going to be your demise, you have to know how important sex is to you and your partner. We suggest sitting down and having a talk about it and seeing if it is something that you both can deal with. If not, it's time to say goodbye!
