While it's generally "important to maintain a sexual connection with a romantic partner," Muise said, "it is also important to have realistic expectations for one’s sex life, given that many couples are busy with work and responsibilities."

Muise also said, while sex is good for the couple, both physically and psychologically, it doesn’t mean it has to happen every night. She came to this conclusion after several surveys with thousands of participants over decades.
