    Being in a sexless relationship for several years, I can say... yes. Its not recommended.

    Yes but it would be a boring relationship. Can there be sex without love? I don't know.

    You cannot have a family without a little of both.

    it can't be predicted cos feeling of sex only comes when you are in love with a a girl or boy of your age...and that also only when you feel to express your feeling to her in some other way than usual ones ..but love to your sibling ,parents, friends these love are expressed without sex..i.e loyalty, sacrifice,well wishes..these are some terms that express love for for some one

    I really don't understand it but some people are happy just being together without the physical activity.

    I feel that the two come together naturallyand would be less than happy in a relationship that was only love or sex.

    But most of them did have sex, before age made it too difficult.

    Yes that is true-but,my parents have been married 63 yrs-I guarantee they stopped having sex many years ago-but they love each other very much.

    Of course there can. Romantic love can exist without sexual attraction, even though it is rare, and obviously platonic love does not need that attraction. If for whatever reason my boyfriend wanted to quit all sexual activity--we have yet to have actual sex, even after two years--I don't know that I would like it, but I love him for many, many reasons and think that the relationship would still work just fine. Sex is just one expression that can be included in expressions of love, or left out if one person or both people in the relationship would rather do without it.

    Sex doesn't last forever, it eventually goes so yes you can still love without sex.
    I don't like sex, I'm not sexually attracted to people so there's no real desire to have sex. I'd prefer a non-sexual romantic relationship out of everything else. Personally I prefer to express love in various other ways than the physical.

    Love itself is deeper than sex. Sex is just one out of many ways to express love for each other. So since I don't feel the desire to have sex or the attraction to people (btw, I'm Asexual) I prefer to express my love in those other ways.

    Conversely you can have a sexual relationship without love. So the reverse must also be true.

    There are many cases where two people deeply love each other but can not engage in physical sex. It does not change the fact that they love each other. Love is far far deeper than sex. Making love is great but a relationship is a whole lot more than the physical act.

    Absolutely. There are people who fall in love, get married and there might be a reason they never can have or choose to have sex. Their love is no less pure or passionate.
    If you marry someone for sex only, that can go away very quickly until the next sexier thing comes along. During a long lasting relationship there can be periods where sex is
    not safe (i.e. a dangerous pregnancy, a serious illness, recuperating from a serious illness, or having to live in separate places for a period of time). If sex is all you have in the relationship, you won't survive those periods of time. It's the soul connection and the love that makes it work.

    Love and sex have nothing to do with each other !! You can see plenty of sex in the movie GANG BANG GIRLS # 26, but, I don't think there is much love there ?!? [...]

    If your partner was to have a medical problem would you throw him aside and not love him anymore? Not me. I took a vow "in sickness and in health".

    Over the long haul no. you must be very young or something is wrong with you, this is about a partnership love not family. Sex is the bonding and if you say you can do without

    Absolutely, I love my children, my family, and my friends (No sex involved). Some folks have a good sexual relationship without love. They don't necessarily go hand in hand.

    That's the way it SHOULD be! "Society" has made love and sex inclusive. One should engage in sexual activity to procreate or because it's fun.

    I was in a what we thought was a sexless marriage for a few years. It didn't get either of us upset. We did other things. We just lost interest...but enjoyed the company. I have also dated Gf's in the 90's for long periods without sex. The opportunity is not always congruent with the feelings.

    And you can absolutely love your relatives with no sexual feelings...or close friends.
