One of the things that I know is fundamental in a "relationship" is whether your partner is visually attractive or not, or whether you're "sexually compatible" with your partner.

But what happens to these things once you become older?

Do ya'll just stop having sex or something? Does your marriage get boring or something?

Or do ya'll simply get a divorce due to the lack of sexual compatibility?

??? Loving someone makes them more attractive.

There is also the fact that your tastes age up with you. Women in their 40's are attractive to me now, that simply would have never been the case 10 years ago.

Is there a biological basis for that?

Are people genetically wired to being sexually attracted to people their own age?

And does "loving someone" actually make them beautiful?

Not necessarily. People can tough it out in relationships so long as they are financially comfortable.


But what happens to these things once you become older?

People's sexual desires can change as they get older. When you're 55+, you know you can't get those young people anymore. So you settle for what you can get.


Do ya'll just stop having sex or something? Does your marriage get boring or something?

I'm not 55+ but I imagine they continue to have sex in most. Besides, there's more value to a relationship than just sex so marriages can continue on.


Or do ya'll simply get a divorce due to the lack of sexual compatibility?

Sexual incompatibility can be a factor in divorces. I don't think aging's a huge part of why people divorce though. I'd have to look over the statistics. I think most people wouldn't hold it against a good partner for aging.

Wouldn't your sexual compatibility disappear as you get older though? Because as you and your partner become older, you become less and less attractive...

You're comparing absolute attractiveness to relative attractiveness.
It doesn't matter if the world thinks your wife is beautiful as long as you think your wife is beautiful.

Does a useful definition for "beauty" exist other than "when I look at you I feel happy (or otherwise good)"?

Almost positive I'd find the woman I love beautiful when she's ancient and shriveled and more wrinkles than skin. I'm pretty sure she could lose her face in a horrific accident and it still wouldn't change my attraction. Whatever chemicals her existence release inside me blind me to whatever conventional "flaws" that tend to make regular people less attractive to us.

I mean when a guy sees a hot girl and thinks "Damn, I want to bang her." is not the same thing as a deep emotional bond with a partner.

Sure a relationship built purely on sex and physical attraction is doomed to failure down the line, but most aren't built that way. Now can sex be an important part of a relationship sure, but if it's the primary driving factor to why you are with a person that is pretty bad unless both parties are just like a FWB thing or it's a fling.

It's basically like saying "When I watch porn I only like seeing girls between ages 18-25 therefore no one could ever find a 50 year old woman attractive."

When I watch porn, which I rarely do, I don't go looking for 55+ chicks to whack it to.

Can I be attracted to someone my old age? Of course.

Do I suddenly stop finding young hot chicks sexy?

Nope.

I envy anyone who actually stops finding younger chicks hot as they age, I don't actually hit on em (although plenty of other older guys do), but I sure as heck still notice em.

Ignoring whether it is genetic or not, the answer to both would be yes. While you might not notice someone's looks "changing" when you fall in love with them, you will notice when that love is gone.

You are physically aging also, along with your mate. Both of you know you have reached and passed your physical prime and you accept that, Hell, you even laugh at that.

You have much more than physical attraction holding you together. You have a history of companionship. You have friends, family and grandkids.
You have such a deep understanding of each other they become a part of you. So close that is why some elderly folks die within days of each other. It is a bond they choose and I admire.

many Chicks get more sexually adventurous with age.

also that being said, while people do tend to let themselves go that is becoming more true of 18 year olds to the point that we now have a growin opinion in the medical community that to combat piggies from getting type 2 diabetes that they have gastric bypass as teens.

that goes for men and women too. Anyone can be calorically challenged if they dont take care of themselves.

To be fair, part of that is because some forms of dementia wipe out the inhibitions that would normally keep residents from going wild. Then there's the fact that birth control isn't needed (thanks, menopause), so condoms are less of a priority. Nevertheless, the point that old people still get horny remains true.

Many guys start getting hotter at 40+ and even moreso at 50+. As long as they stay active that is. I've never found most young guys hot (under 30). As for women a lot could look good later too but I find they let themselves go after a certain age or motherhood.

I can see it harder getting into the gane once you are older if you cant drop your standards a bit. But if you married young and stayed together love forms and looks stop mattering as much. For some sex becomes less important and its more about having a best friend to spend out your remaining days with.
