If you can learn to identify the signs of emotionally immaturity in a relationship, you'll be more aware of your behavior and can figure out the best way to correct it in the future.
When it comes to how much sex you "should" be having, it really comes down to what you want and need as a couple — especially when it comes to a long-term relationship.
