YES: Sounds from the number of children that your hubby is OK...However you should discuss these feelings with him! If you can't agree some joint counseling may be a good idea. Hope this helps! Good Luck! Dr Z

No: Unless this is the pattern of your relationship since the time you met then this is not normal. If he has lost interest to the point that sex every 6 mths is the norm you need to sit down and be honest with where relationship is. Did this start after the children were born? Does he complain that you spend all your energy on the children and none on him? Confront situation before it gets worse

Ask Hubby: I do not quite get your question here. Are you saying you have sex daily, but your hubby is every 6mo? That wold not fair well for him!? Or are you saying you would like to have sex more often with him? Either way, that is a personal question that the 2 of you should discuss, as sex can be important in a relationship. On a whole daily sex is often and every 6 mo is NOT often.Try a middle ground.
