Our expert says:
On average married couples under the age of 30 have sex approximately once a week. Couples who report frequent sexual activity seem to be happier than those with less frequent sex. But what is normal varies greatly, and what’s most important is how happy YOU as a couple are with your current sexual activity.
Those who report less sex may also have difficulty talking about sex, so I would advise not assuming that each of you are happy under the circumstances. Check in with each other, talk about how you feel, and most importantly ensure that you are finding ways to enhance and nurture intimacy in the absence of sex. If either of you are dissatisfied with your sexual lives, but feel its difficult to talk about, then seeking professional help may help you to find a way around this.
It is entirely possible however that you have been fortunate enough to find someone who is entirely on your wavelength, and with whom your compatibility extends to the low priority you place on sex. What is normal is not important to your particular situation, what is however most important is that you are both happy and satisfied with the frequency of sex you mention.
