Getting married soon? Or maybe you’re already married and looking for some encouragement?
My favorite part of the article:
5. SEX IS IMPORTANT…LIKE REALLY IMPORTANT
I seriously can’t touch on this point enough! (I’m actually thinking about writing an e-book on the topic of sex in marriage, so let me know in the comments what you think!) Thanks to guidance from God, improving our sex life has been the #1 marriage enhancer out of everything else we have changed. It ranks higher than learning how to communicate better, establishing roles in the home, and even figuring out our love languages. Why? Because turning up the intimacy in our marriage has improved all those other topics I listed as well!
And I’m not talking about being more adventurous or having longer sex. No, nothing like that. We just changed our attitudes toward sex, discovered what the other person truly needed through hard conversations, and kept it a priority. We WERE NOT in a good place intimately during the first part of our marriage, and everything else suffered because of it. However, since making this change in the last quarter of our first year, EVERYTHING else has changed as well!
