According to figures from the Kinsey Sex Institute, the average couple in their second decade of marriage makes love little more than once a week, but the Hubbards, who now own a gym in Plymouth, insist they enjoy a 'very regular' sex life.

Me doth think you insist too much.

FTFA: "I think it's a cop-out when people say they're bored. Why would anyone want to jeopardise [sic] something good for half an hour's excitement?"

If it's only half an hour of excitement then yeah, it's not worth it.  Of course, if it's only half an hour of excitement, then someone is doing something very wrong.

suspending my disbelief for one moment... good luck to em, but frankly i think you'd be mad to marry someone before you've had sex with them. what if you're totally imcompatible, or it turns out one of you just isnt that up for it? a lifetime/longterm relationship is hard enough without having to work at sex, which is an incredibly important component of a relationship

Care?  not really
Need to know?  Maybe.  If someone wants a good marriage, waiting for it may be just the ticket.

As was noted early, you never miss what you didn't have.  There does seem to be a correlation to sacrificing long term for a rich short term experience and visa versa.

Although, you can have regrets later in life.  We may not know what it is to have a lifelong partner, but we see enough of it in society to pine over having lost our chance.  So, that never missing what you didn't have is not necessarily universal.

Best to educate as much as possible and let people choose for themselves which they want to strive for, if either.

So yes, people do need to know, to be well advised so that they can make the decision that's right for them. Happy people, fulfilled in their personal life, are better for society at large than are spiteful and lonely old ladies with 20+cats, at least 15 of them still alive.

There should definitely be a thorough discussion about goals and direction in life prior to getting married; it does not make since to marry someone for whom you have no love or shared vision.

The only thing from the article suggesting that (outside of the two couples who think it may or may not be a factor) is the idea that divorce rates have increased over the last 60 years as did  the number of sexual partners somebody is willing to admit but there's so many other contributing factors to both of those statics that you can't draw any causation between them.

So a couple is out for dinner at a fine restaurant on the occasion of their 25th anniversary.  Without warning, the wife slugs the husband.  "What the hell was that for?" he asks

"25 years of lousy sex!" she blurts.

They're finishing their dinner when he suddenly slugs her.  "What was that for?" she yells.

"Knowing the difference!"

problem is, one of you may one day meet someone you really want to fark, and if you're not getting it at home that's a very difficult temptation to resist

perhaps you/she will decide what you have is better overall, and resist, but it's suuuuuch a temptation

Whether you wish to have sex before marriage is not as much of an issue as the fact that most psychologists agree that once a couple has sex in their relationship, getting to really know the other person practically grinds to a halt.  So meeting someone and jumping directly into bed with them will practically stop the development of a real relationship.  Then, you get married; find out you can't have sex 24 hours a day; or even the 3 hours a day you're at home with this person and not sleeping; and you realize that sex is the only thing you like about this person and things goes south PDQ.

Or, how about the woman who so wants to get married that she has a great sex life with a guy, gets him to the altar, and then turns frigid after marriage?  I know it's anecdotal but it has happened to far too many guys I know to be completely isolated.

If a couple has truly taken the time to know each other at the deepest levels and neither of them is a complete narcissist, their sex life will be satisfactory primarily because they love each other and each wants to please the other person.  That's far more important in sex than mechanics.
