At any age, when couples first fall in love, they often can’t keep their hands off each other. The hot-and-heavy period in relationships varies, but typically lasts six months to a year, two at most. After that, sexual urgency subsides for one partner or both, and so does sexual frequency.
When both people are in synch on this, the issue does not become a sore point. But typically, couples disagree about sexual frequency, which may cause a great deal of rancor.
