I'll be interested to see what other readers think, too. What you suggest is a possible explanation in some situations ( I'm certain there is no one explanation for all even superficially similar situations ).
Not only in the circumstances you describe, do people seek affection and tenderness more than actual sex.
But then, in both sexes, people who are basically homosexual may enter into long-term heterosexual relationships, even marriage, in response to a wish to be like others and not to court prejudice. And it may be easier for a woman to "fake it" in a more passive sexual role. And eventually, they may decide to acknowledge their more basic sense of gender identity and sexual interests, and reveal what may not be a new sexual orientation, but an acknowledgement of one which was present all along.
Remember that it is a myth that people are either 100 % heterosexuial or 100% homosexual, and many are somewhere on a continuum between those extremes
