Lovemaking without love is not sufficient

Having intercourse with someone you do not love or have just met can lead to stress and depression. Also lovemaking with your partner when he or she is not in the mood or right phase of mind can lead to a strained relationship. Yes, even 'lovemaking' requires 'love' to be complete.

Has it become a responsibility or a chore?

For couples who believe that sex makes their relationship stronger, the one’s opposing them say that physical intimacy is not enough to make up for strangled relationships. Making love to your sweetheart can many a times create gaps in the relationship, instead of strengthening it. If the sexual activities take place just as a mere formality or chore, it loses its charm and meaning. Sometimes making love becomes a mere activity that is performed between a man and a woman in a relationship. Years after years, this activity goes on without any love for each other. So yes, just physical intimacy can never be enough to strengthen the relationship.
