A Rut is Personal
A sexless marriage is defined as one where sex occurs less than ten times in one year. However, a sexual rut is more than that. What makes it a rut is that the people in it truly feel like they are stuck. "Not everybody that's in a sexless marriage is going to be considered in a sexual rut, some people are fine with it," says Jo-Ann. The kind of interactions that make for a rut for one couple may be just right for another.
