can two people have a good relationship without having sex?

Yes.

Sex is not the only way people let each other know they care. People demonstrate love by being there for each other, solving problems together, sharing hard times as well as good times, helping each other grow, and being patient with each other.

This is true for people of all ages. Young people have a lot of good reasons to postpone or go without sex. So do people of all ages. We all have friends we love but do not sexually desire. And sex often becomes less important for people because of illness, medication, or other life circumstances. People in these situations rely on non-sexual intimacy to keep their relationships meaningful and enjoyable.
