We all know that an active sex life is important for a healthy long-term relationship or marriage. I bet when you first started going out with your significant other the sparks were flying and you pretty much couldn't keep your hands off each other. You would have to make excuses to your friends about why they don't see you anymore and it's because you're busy having fun between the sheets with your loved one. Time changes things. I've been married for going on 9 years now and three kids later, plus pregnant with number 4, there have been times where we've been like that early stage and times where we are the complete opposite. It happens in many relationships, and like anything else long-term and real, that fluctuation will happen from time to time. But, truth-be-told, no matter how much you love someone, there are times where you really don't feel like doing it. There are times where your libido is the total opposite of your partner's and in those times, we - being both women and men - come up with some pretty creative and sometimes funny reasons why we just don't want to have sex. Here are 7 excuses you may have heard or said when you really just were not in the mood. - By Devan McGuinness
