Courting couples may want to reconsider shacking up for the sake of their future sex life.


Four years after getting married, couples with longer courtships who lived together before their wedding had less frequent sex at the beginning of their marriage. Those with shorter courtships who didnt live together before tying the knot had more sex, according to a study published in the Journal of Sex Research.


The study of about 100 couples also found that lovebirds who lived together before marriage were less sexually satisfied than those couples who didnt live together before marriage.


And sex aside, living together before marriage also could spell doom for the relationships future. A 2018 study from the Journal of Marriage and Family found that couples who lived together before marriage also had a higher rate of divorce after five years of marriage.



But long-term couples shouldnt get discouraged, says Logan Levkoff, a New York-based sexologist.


The study is painfully deceiving, Levkoff said. When someone lives with a partner prior to getting married, they have access to sex, so thats why early on theres [not an increase in] frequency.


Statistics when it comes to peoples sex lives, she warns, arent really applicable to the general population.


Living together with someone comes with responsibilities and general stresses of life, and you prioritize things, Levkoff says. If you dont cohabitate before marriage, marriage is the first time you have 24/7 access to sex, and its new.


And besides, sex by the numbers doesnt give the whole picture. The study also found that couples who were together for a longer period of time before they wed had more consistent levels of sexual satisfaction over time, compared to those who dated for a shorter period of time. For those couples, things tended to fizzle out four years later.


The longer youve been with someone and this isnt a bad thing theres no way to mimic the novelty of a new relationship. Can there be a shift over time if youve been together longer? Absolutely. But that doesnt mean you cant connect and get back to that.
