Relationships are full of ups and downs, and I think even the worst moments are needed for balance. It can't just be all sunshine and roses, right? Between the fights, picking on each other, and silent treatments, you learn how to problem solve and you learn how to be better for each other. But I'll even go so far as to say that the fights aren't enough, and that there are reasons why every couple should go through a sex dry spell.
I know. Sex dry spells are the worst. But is it because of the lack of sex or because of what's causing the dry spell? It's easy to slip into a comfortable routine with your partner and forget about sex, but I'm not so sure that it can always be blamed on wearing sweatpants after a long day instead of lingerie. Sometimes the stress of life, children, work, and obligations can make sex seem like the least important thing in the world. But when you're in a sex dry spell, both you and your partner most likely notice and are willing to fix the issue. And in that moment? You're fixing a bunch of other problems you didn't even know you had. So for you, your partner, and your relationship, here are 11 reasons why every couple should go through a sex dry spell.
