Don't try the sex cure.

Do not get into the habit of engaging in intercourse as a means of settling your differences. Wonderful as sexual intercourse is, it does not patch up fundamental differences. That is not its forte. Under the emotional stress of sexual feelings serious differences may be, and will be, forgotten for the moment. But they are not cured.

-- From "Sex, Satisfaction and Happy Marriage," by Alfred Henry Tyrer (Emerson Books, 1938).
