The Constant Battle Over What Makes a Good Relationship
Tracy Moore

Obviously marrying someone you do not want to have sex with makes no sense because “no sex” means no marriage.

That being said is the sex angle a totally different angle? Should the desire for sex be a totally different dimension of our desire to be with that person or should it be a function of our unilateral, one-dimensional decision or desire to be with that person?

Let me illustrate.

Is it:

I like Rachel and Rachel likes me, as such I want to be with Rachel and have sex with Rachel as part of the total package of a romantic relationship


I like Rachel and think sex with Rachel will be great so I want to be with Rachel.

It is a thin line between the two things but the two things are not quite the same.
