Description

Most couples in long-term relationships remain happy with their sex lives, even into their 60s, new research says.

The British Sociological Association's annual conference in Manchester heard that while it was not uncommon for couples to disagree about how often they should have sex, this did not alter the commitment to the relationship.

Professor Jacqui Gabb, of the Open University, and Professor Janet Fink, of the University of Huddersfield, surveyed more than 5,000 heterosexual, lesbian, gay and bisexual people aged 16 to 65 to ask about their relationships.
