Jia Sen - Should a couple who constantly fights divorce?

Shailendra Dhodi - How important is sex in a marriage?
I was just reading an article about how a man was granted divorce over grounds that his wife demanded too much sex. Now we all know that sex is important in a marriage but can it really mean the making or breaking of a marriage? What do you think? more »
