Sex for the Sterile Couple??

Jenny,

What would be considered a valid reason to ever have sexual intercourse if one partner is sterile and cannot reproduce?  It would be sex for the sake of sex, and you might think that God would be very aggravated by people in this situation taking advantage of their inability to conceive.  What's the scoop?

you mean aside from sex being one of the greatest pleasures in life, sharing love and being necessary for physical and mental health? No reason at all.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

I've heard it said that God created sex for "babies and bonding." -  procreation and building the marital relationship.  If one person in the relationship is sterile, there is still another purpose for sex, which is the bonding part.  That is equally important.  It is another way of giving ourselves to our partner - of serving that person's needs.  It's about love, not about sex.

In the mid-1950s, several Christian denominations actually adopted the position of permitting sexual relations between married couples APART FROM THE PURPOSE OF CHILD-BEARING. As silly as we might think this is today, at least the inquiring Christian can rest on this historic denominational affirmation of the practice.

While this is how God intended couples to have children, it's not the only reason he gave it to them. It is to bring a couple together and become one, as a couple should be. This was to be ONLY for married man,woman marriages, not a sport or play thing. It's a special gift only for the married.
