Well, of course there are explanation for this finding, people tend to know the partner rationally and carefully when sex doesn't involve in this 'get to know each other' stage. People tend to find more happiness in long term because they have known the partner very well in proper way, especially women, while men also can experience it but is unconciously. When sex involves in the process, people will confuse sex = nutrient for relationship, and take less effort to understand the partner more.
I wonder this finding is also apply for gay couples, as we know...no sex for 6 months when you have a BF??? Big NO WAY from most gays..I think..hahahaha. Even for me I think I can hold for 3-4 months?? I have no idea since I'm horny all the time...lol. If you say those have been together for many years then of course possible, but for gay couple being together in first few months, that is the time the relationship full of Passion, Love, Affection..lol. I should do a survey about how long gays can hold their urge.
