A study revealed that newly-weds are not the only ones who could enjoy having vibrant sex lives, as couples who have surpassed 50 years of marriage may experience a slight pick-up in how often they share their intimacy with each other, according to a report by the Huffington Post on February 19.

During the study, which involved 1,600 adults in their late fifties and older, researchers from the Louisiana State University noticed a minor surge in how frequently long-married couples were having sex. Researchers believe that couples who are married longer have a deeper sense of permanency, commitment, and trust that inspire them to invest more in every aspect of their relationship, including the intimate part.

Marriage can be a source of comfort, happiness, and pleasure. However, a great marriage takes commitment and work. Marriage counselor Kathleen Snyder can share with you tips for a longer, happier marriage. Call her at 512-659-8600 to schedule an appointment with her.
