It just seems selfish to mm.. That person is only interested in their own needs being met. call me crazy, but I thought being in love meant that you care for the other persons needs as much as your own needs. If you are leaving a marriage because one (1) need isn't being meant the way you want it met, then it is not a marriage.

Life gets complicated. People do age and change -- if a person cannot accept that they're pretty infantile. However, IMHO, sexual intimacy is an essential component of a healthy marriage. Obviously at some point -- with advanced old age -- sexual activity will tapper off -- but until then sex is an essential part of a healthy marriage.

Also, its not a selfishness issue -- the needs of both partners have to be satisfied.
