You need to tell your neighbor that great sex is one of the worst reasons to marry someone. Great Sex, Wealth, Good-looking are all very shallow reasons to marry. However, if your neighbor is leading this woman on by saying that he wants to marry her, when he does not, we have a bigger problem. Many times, men believe that they have to lie to get what they want, when this is a new day and age, and women have learned and voiced that they have needs to. I believe that your neighbor needs to sit down with this woman and ask her if there relationship remains sexual without the commitment, how much longer will it lasts. Now, if the answer is "not for too much longer," and your neighbor gets sad, he may want to evaluate his feelings. After he self-reflects, he may realize that he may really like this woman, but is scared to get married. However, if he is just sad because he will not have access to her body, he may need to get on a dating app that is solely for sex alone. Hopefully, one day your neighbor will start thinking with the right head, until then wear condoms! It's dangerous out there.
