    I didn't want to derail the "Cheating' thread so I thought I'd start this one to ask:

    Is sex a human right? And I'd like to expand that to include: Can you expect sex from your partner if you are married?

    So, whatcha think?

    It's a method of reproduction and an animal instinct, one which too few even resist. As I say, humans are just livestock.

    Marriage is a contract and sex is part of that contract. Unless both parties agree that sex is no longer part of said contract then one party refusing is grounds for dissolving the contract. And the party refusing can be held liable for the failure of the marriage unless they can show just cause as to why they refused sex.

    How? Go ahead and explain how a normal marriage is not a contract between two people that INCLUDES sex with each other.

    It just doesn't seem like it .... never heard of anyone so mindless to think that sex and relationships are the same thing ... it's just not natural.

    Is it a human right? I don't think so ... you need to get another human to consent to have sex with you.

    Expect it from your partner?

    Of course. There are exceptions obiviously ... physically unable to perform or if you are fighting ... things of that nature. But if your partner refuses to have sex with you (and I'm not talking once or twice here) for no good reason then that's grounds for ending that relationship, IMO.
