Even the happiest of couples can go in for dry spells or worst, stop having sex. Experts say that early stage of intense and romantic love increases the dopamine system, which then increases testosterone and strong libido. And while the attachment becomes more and more powerful, sex drive lessens.

When a couple first meets and falls in love they can t get enough of each other and enjoy lots of sex, but with time, it turns into minimal amounts. Here's why...

Stress: This is one of the most-used excuses, and be it work or family, it hits your sex life. Experts say that sex is lot of work. While the woman may feel they need more time to get into the mood, need longer time to orgasm, and sometimes, it might not give the expected ROI.

Ex-partners: Researches have found that the more sexual partners a person has before marriage, the lower the quality of sex, communication and relationship stability they have in a marriage. The truth is that more romances lead to you thinking that you can leave someone, and you do not develop some important relationship-orientated skills.
