After Just 12 Months, Passion in a Relationship Begins to Fade Says Research
"This doesn’t surprise me at all as previous research shows that the intense sexual chemistry of the honeymoon phase diminishes at around 18 months," says Dr Pam Spurr, a relationship expert. "The great news though is that many couples develop a deeper emotional intimacy that bridges the 'can’t keep your hands off each other' passion of the early days to a more mature approach to satisfying sex that meets their needs."
"In the early days of a relationship, passion is prominent, and then other things develop and change. Children arrive, there are changes at work, and there may be a mismatch between partners in their sexual needs.Perhaps over time as the relationship matures, the significance of factors like loyalty, trust, caring, honesty and the value of shared interests, become more important. Sex is still part of the package, but its significance declines as needs mature," says Professor Sir Cary Cooper, a Manchester University psychologist.
