Dear Shannon,

I loved the article!

The old joke that in the first year of marriage you put a dollar in every time you have sex, and in the subsequent years you take a dollar out every time you have sex, but that jar will never be empty — that always bothered me.

Sex is part of intimacy of a good marriage. It shouldn’t be the most important part, it shouldn’t be the most trivial part, but just like everything else in life, it will evolve & change & if it’s not tended, it will wither & die on the vine.

Talking about it is a healthy & natural thing & shouldn’t be a taboo. Good on you for writing about this!
