The Bible doesn't tell us how often a married couple should have sex, it does tell us that a couple is to abstain only when it is a mutual decision. First Corinthians 7:5 tells us, "Do not deprive ...
As often as they like but both partners must agree. The marriage bed is undefiled. However if each one wants to either please or protect the other then they should make accommodations to do so. If for instance the husband travels then the wife should help him "be empty" when he leaves. As one older lady once said, "Never let your husband leave the house with a loaded pistol" She was old, like white hair old. One time a man said when he was propositioned by a woman, "why stay here and eat hamburger when I have steak at home"? Sometimes it can be for the protection of the marriage covenant and other times for fun, or procreation etc. Once again the couple should agree on when to withhold and when to be there for the other. Sex is also covenant making, where two become one, just as when we take communion we are making covenant with God via Jesus. And the bible says to do that as often as we think of Him.
