A husband fulfilling his wife's needs..
عن الرجل إذا صبر على زوجته الشهر والشهرين لا يطؤها فهل عليه إثم أم لا؟ وهل يطالب الزوج بذلك؟
يجب على الرجل أن يطأ زوجته بالمعروف وهو من أوكد حقها عليه أعظم من إطعامها والوطء الواجب قيل: إنه واجب في كل أربعة أشهر مرة وقيل: بقدر حاجتها وقدرته كما يطعمها بقدر حاجتها وقدرته وهذا أصح القولين

Shaykh al-Islām ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله was asked about a man who stayed away from his wife for a month or two (months) and did not have sexual intercourse with her, is there any sin upon him and could he do such?
He رحمه الله replied:
The husband is obligated to have sexual intercourse with his wife on a reasonable basis, this is one of the most important rights that she has over him, it is more important than feeding her. It is said, that which is obligatory with regards to sexual intercourse is once every four months, or according to her needs and his ability, just as he should feed her according to her needs and his ability.
