(NaturalNews) As much as we believe in marriage as a culture, the cherished bonds are failing miserably where sexual intimacy is concerned. In a much-discussed recent study of 35,000 American women, published in Woman’s Day, 79 percent said they’d like sex more often, and 52 percent said they have no sex life to speak of.
When you combine all the tedious tasks the average woman has to do, usually carrying the bulk of the domestic burden in a modern family, with little sexual fulfillment or emotional intimacy, you have a recipe for disaster.
Exploring the end of her own marriage, Atlantic Monthly columnist Sandra Tsing Loh laments, “Given my staggering working mother’s to-do list, I cannot take on yet another arduous home- and self-improvement project, that of rekindling our romance.” She then moves on to diagnose a broader epidemic of dissatisfaction – emotional, social, familial and, most of all, sexual – among women. “To work, to parent, to housekeep, to be the ones who schedule ‘date night’ … and then, in the bedroom, to be ignored – it’s a bum deal,” she writes.
Yet, Americans are committed to the institution of marriage, with only 10% of people believing marriage is an outdated institution. This, in spite of the fact that 90% of Americans will both marry and divorce in their lifetime. We are living the paradox as a culture. However, married individuals, as well as those in committed relationships of all kinds, should wake up and take action, especially men.
With all the talk of LGBT marriage, shouldn’t we abolish a failed institution. http://burndownthefreakingmission.com
