Some of the problems that one has to face in a marriage are to do with the area of sexual fulfilment. Both husband and wife need to feel satisfied in this regard, and if not, then several problems may arise. A common problem is marital unfaithfulness in which a spouse has one or more intimate relationships outside of the marriage. This is devastating and can be fatal to the marriage bond. Another factor which may cause sexual problems would be if a spouse has been abused in the past and is unable to enjoy a healthy relationship due to trust and innocence which has been broken.
