A mixed-orientation marriage is a marriage between partners of differing sexual orientations. The people involved in such a marriage may not be romantically or sexually compatible, for example if the marriage is between a heterosexual male and a homosexual female. The marriage of an asexual to a sexual is one in which the asexual partner either does not experience sexual desire or attraction, or experiences low desire or attraction. For the asexual partner, the word "compromise" is used by the Asexual Visibility and Education Network] AVEN community to label the act of consenting to have sex with their partner for their partner's benefit. People in these marriages may need to address certain questions of acceptability, such as whether the sexual partner must be monogamous. Approximately one third of all mixed-orientation couples stay married.
