Will nikaah become invalid if spouses don't have intercourse?

Q: If a husband and wife didn't or couldn't physically have intercourse with each other for a long time (due to some illness or any other reason), will the nikaah be cancelled after 7 years?

A: No.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
