How do children affect your sex life with your Significant Other?

Bignuf Bignuf
For those here who have had children, how has it affected your sex life with your significant other? Of course, there may be a million permutations here..divorce, single parenthood, remarriage, the fact we all get older etc, but in general, let's see what "falls out" here.

It was difficult when they were babies and toddlers. We Attachment Parent and my time was very scarce. We still had sex, probably more than most people do when they don't even have kids, but it was less for us than we were used to. When our kids start sleeping better at around two years old, it gets better.

When they are more independent it gets even better in the sex department. My Man and I then have more time for each other when our kids are more independent and are less likely to walk in. (Even though they learned when they were toddlers that you always knock on a closed door before coming in.)

We have one moved out, and two living with us. One in Grad school and one in Middle School. About 2 years ago, we moved the middle school kid (who was in grade school then) from the room across from ours to down the hall. We have more privacy now and we have a spare room across from us where no one sleeps. I feel better being louder when there isn't a kid only 10 feet away.

Our children never affected our sex life even when they were young, since we prefer to have sex late at night after everyone else is asleep.

I have a one year old and a three year old, currently they have not changed our sex life what so ever.

My wife refers to he 30s as the sex-drought. It was pretty much self inflicted (by her). In her 40s she got over it and kids became less of an issue.

They are young adults living at home now - so more than anything affects the timing, not the quantity.

In the beginning when the kids were born it was really tough. We talked, decided it was time to figure it out and we have. You have to make time and be spontaneous.

We don't have children, but before my husband got a vasectomy the thought of having children would scare me off sex for long periods of time.

the only thing the kids did, was to keep us in our bedroom for sexy time.

We have a toddler, but he's asleep by 8:15 which leaves plenty of time.

Judging by my babysitting experience, it adds a certain challenge due to exhaustion and the fact that kids can be sneaky little ninjas
