Although few people go into marriage expecting issues in the sexual department, we need to recognize that sex is one of the top issues that causes arguments in marriage.
One of the foundational truths about sex is that God designed it to be intertwined with spiritual and relational significance. Unfortunately, many believe having sex can be an act as morally neutral as what we chose to have for breakfast.
Both in Christian and secular cultures, the message we’ve long heard is that men want frequent sex. That’s often true. But sometimes, it’s the wife who longs for more sexual encounters to both express and foster the intimacy she feels for her husband.
Would it surprise you to know that there are multiple ways most of us have damaging, subconscious, “it doesn’t count if . . .” or “if they loved me, they would . . .” expectations of our spouse? Let me share just two.
Even with many married couples spending more time at home than ever before, we still have busy days, and it can be easy to feel closer to our kids than to our husband. But in the end, many of us also need to improve our overall connection to our husband.
