It has occurred to me that marriages between gay men and women with little to no sexual interest in men must have occurred fairly regularly throughout history. Of course, such factors as arranged marriages and the need for heirs of a marriage would certainly affect that pattern, not to mention partners who found out they were mistaken about what they wanted or needed. But it does seem like an obvious thing to do.
