Hello everyone and welcome to today’s Sunday Love Special.
Today’s topic is on something that happens in many marriages which leaves some partners feeling right and others feeling aggrieved.
Do you think it’s right to turn down your partner’s sexual advances when you aren’t in the mood?
Drama and Shawn will share their opinions
Absolutely! Sex is an act born out of an urge. It is the urge that makes the act enjoyable; without it, it becomes unpleasant. So if you desire to get laid and your partner does not feel the same way, it’s only reasonable and rational that you forget it, at least for that moment or period. That does not only make you a reasonable human, it also means you have respect for your partner’s feelings. If you cannot accept and respect their mood at that very moment, then, you’re no different from a rapist.
Like I have said, it doesn’t even matter if you are married to that person, they still have a right to deny you sex if they don’t feel like doing it. There’s nothing disrespectful or unfaithful about it, it means they’re human and they have mood swings like anybody else. However I’d like to add that if it becomes too consistent or the break takes too long to be cut, then you may have cause to worry. Sometimes, one can deny you sex if they are no longer in love with you or they want to punish you for something.
