How long after the honeymoon did it take for your sex to slow down a bit (or stop completely I guess)?

Well right now we're just about a month back from our honeymoon, and the sex is still happening with the same frequency it did before and during. I'm not sure if that's any help tho.

We still have sex the same as we did then. Now it has slowed down a lot from when we first started dating, lol... but it's gotten sooooooo much better.

I don't anticipate our sex life slowing down or stopping at all lol. That's such a sad thought!

It varied for us. Went down after the summer we got married was over (back to work for me as a teacher at the time, very draining), then back up the following summer... on and off like that for 2 years. Then we started trying to have a baby and I was pushing for every other day. Pregnancy, sex went pretty much bye-bye, and then at the end when I wanted it the doc said I couldn't. After baby, it took a few months to even feel like it again. More sporadic for another year, and THEN I found EF and started reviewing. Now it's at least once a week... which is less than when we first started I guess.

Long roundabout way of saying "up and down and up again for almost 5 years running."

Relationships have ups and downs when it comes to sex. It's not marriage or the honeymoon that slow sex down, it's becoming an adult and gaining responsibility. As the responsibilities add up, sometimes sex becomes less important in our lives. New children, pets, jobs, bills, medical problems, family problems, moving, hormonal changes, aging, and life will have an impact on your sex life. Sometimes it's temporary, sometimes it's permanent. You roll with the punches or you sort out your priorities and make sex happen.

We have been married 9 years. We have 4 children (8, 6, 5 and 4), 2 dogs, a mortgage, a 60-70 hour a week job/commute, and many other things the average person has in their life. Sometimes we wind up having sex 2 or 3 times a day. Sometimes we might go a week or so without any sex. While it's true that we were having a lot more frequent sex when we were dating (because we had nothing else to do with our time, being young teenagers), the sex now is far better than what we were doing then, even if we miss a week of it.

I'll totally agree with sarahbear. It's not a factor for us not being interested anymore, but since the time when were first started dating, the real world has become a factor. With me being gone right now 5 days a week working, maybe having 1 day a week off with the wife, and household responsibilities, we have sex less often that I would like. But that has nothing to do with us being married for 5 years.

Not sure - we have more sex in 40s and 50s than we did in our 20s and 30s - go figure!?

Stop!! Never

It is only the time between having sex is increased, It is now about 1 week. At the honeymoon time it was multiple daily.

My wife and I got married really young, and we didn't live together before we married. So for the first six months of marriage I think she hated my guts. She stayed mad at me for my shoes being by my side of the bed, or leaving clothes out. So the first six months after the honeymoon didn't go like I thought they would. But we were able to get things back on track. Those first months were tough though. She went to bed by about 6:30pm just so she wouldn't have to see me. Good thing that we were able to come to a compromise and we live happily ever after.

Since my husband and I have been living together (for about a year before we got married) our pace has not slowed, and I don't see it happening any time soon lol

We have (half)serious suspicions we're nymphos ><
