I try to keep my relationships down to the single evening.
2001-07-05 12:50:45 PM  
I thought this is why we had drugs and alcohol!?

So does this mean that George W. will quit screwing us after four years?
2001-07-05 12:59:29 PM  
so THAT's what happened. What I wanna know is , how come it doesn't automatically restart after 4 years?
After 9 years with the same guy, I'd kinda hope for that.

Four years? I can't even imagine remembering a woman's name after four years.

Married sex is like eating at McDonalds... It's always the same old crap but, for some reason, you just keep going back for more.

Don't think I can top that one, BizarreBehavior. I think it's funny..I don't think my husband would, tho..laf

That's why I occasionly stop by Burger King, and if I am in the mood a little Wendy's. Although right now I am into White Castle, but only on the weekends, I don't want my wife to suspect something.......

Wow Rodney is back. Must have been on vacation spending that settlement money. I have the answer for the 4 year thing with couples: new underwear. Every few months, buy a whole new set and throw away the old ones. Works for me. Of course it also matters what you put in the underwear.

If I have less sex in my relationship, I am going to get carpal tunnel. Been over a month now. Woohoo.
2001-07-05 03:15:50 PM  
I don't see how that's possible Visualingo. A whole month? You two don't sleep in the same bed?
2001-07-05 03:46:03 PM  
I have a figure that they got this 4 year figure by averaging out the 3 months that I guy get bored in with the 64 years the girl does. :-)

Some please translate ShaneM's remark for me? I don't speak that dialect of American.

Also, gotta wonder if years in which there is no sex accrue and eventually extend this number? If so, then I should be good for 6 years now, not 4. *sighs*

I have a figure...

OK, yes I am on crack. Basically I meant to say that they averaged the very small amount of time that a guy gets bored with the much larger amount of time that a girl gets bored. This is how they arrived at the 4 year figure mentioned in the article. Sorry about the confusion...

Marriage is an obsolete institution.
2001-07-05 05:17:56 PM  
this 4 year junk can be avoided with a little creativity. for example: if your girlfriend decides on a whim to surprise you with a catwoman costume...

...back now. that just puts a whole new spin on sex. keep it exciting. try new things.
2001-07-05 05:33:34 PM  
Four years? Like I could ever have a 4 year relationship...Hey, problem solved!
2001-07-05 06:03:26 PM  
why is a wife like an umbrella?

sooner or later a guy just feels like taking a cab.
2001-07-05 08:50:49 PM  
This generalization certainly doesn't apply to to me and mine, as they say third time's a charm!
2001-07-05 09:04:14 PM  
This is why a spouse must be dedicated to being a great friend, a great room-mate and a great parent, as well as to being a great lover.
2001-07-05 09:33:49 PM  
Hmm... the world really shouldn't be this complicated. Women want sex... men want sex. If they didn't, we wouldn't be here to complain about the problem.... so why is there a problem. ARGH.

That said, the article is right (at least for me). After 4 years or so it's like it stopped existing. Women get bored with the same man just as much as (if not more than) men get bored with the same woman -- if only because of the horrible, horrible prototypical images/expectations created by mass media and romance novels of how things should be. That whole Prince Charming-Cinderella story needs to be erased from our society.

But I only see one side of the story. Perhaps I just need to work on my pecs, grow long hair, and wear puffy shirts, ripped open, while romancing busty women in front of a spectacular sunset in Paris.

Who is this Mark, and why does he wait 4 years before interfering?
2001-07-05 10:53:48 PM  
Good article. I just started a with a new GF and we only get to see each other about 2-3 times a week. But wow! do we make up for any lost time. Sometimes we go at it 4 times in one evening. I'm sort of reassured to know that things will calm down; I think I'd be dead after 4 years at this rate.

WHOA you sir deserve a nobel prize or something
2001-07-06 01:12:37 AM  
Was that sarcasm? Sorry, I guess I did come off sounding like an egotistical pudwhacker.

Married Sex Is Like A Salad Bar, You Can Keep Going Back For Seconds And There's Nothing They Can Say.
