The Importance of Sex in Marriage

Intimacy in a romantic relationship is usually something that is built over time. New relationships might have moments of intimacy, but building long-term intimacy is a gradual process that requires patience and communication. 

  • Guarding your marriage from unhealthy fantasies.
    • It’s a fact that our society has shifted towards more sexually explicit content. Whether it be on the internet, in magazines or advertisements, or on television- and movies- it’s everywhere! And as we grow up with this exposure, many of us develop unhealthy fantasies about what sex should look like. In some cases, these fantasies can cause partners to drift apart from one another because they feel inadequate compared to the sexualized images, they see every day. This vlog discusses how couples can protect their marriage from such toxic influences and build intimacy together instead.
  • Understanding yourself – the things you like to do and receive sexually.
    • You and your partner are two different people. You may have similar interests, but there is no way to know what you will want in bed unless you talk about it. It is important to understand yourself and the things that turn you on – so that when it comes time for sex, both of you can enjoy yourselves!
  • Talking about what you like and don’t like with your partner.
    • Do you find yourself arguing with your partner about what they like to do and don’t like to do? If so, it might be a good idea to sit down and talk about this. This way, you can both share your likes and dislikes in order for each of you to get a better understanding of one another. With better communication between the two of you, there will be fewer arguments in the future! You will also have more time together because there won’t be any disagreements on what activities need to take place during date night or at home.
  • Don’t judge the other person. Listen with intent and understanding.
    • Relationships are tough. There is no denying that, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be meaningful and fulfilling. In the process of trying to work through any issue in a relationship, one of the hardest parts is being able to communicate with each other. It is so easy for someone to say something hurtful or insensitive without realizing it because we all come from different backgrounds and have different life experiences. The best way to talk about these hard topics is by listening with intent and understanding instead of judging the other person right away. When you do this, you’ll find that your partner will feel heard and understood which will make them more open to hearing what you have to say too!
  • Having a healthy mentality as it relates to intimacy. God created and blessed sex, in a marital relationship.
    • Sex in a marriage is an amazing and beautiful thing. It brings couples together, allows them to grow closer through the sexual act, and can lead to deep conversations about what you want for your future. However, if one partner is feeling like they are not enjoying the sex as much as their spouse or if they feel pressured into having sex when they don’t want it, then there may be some problem with the intimacy that needs to be addressed. We discussed how a healthy mentality around sex can make all the difference in maintaining a happy relationship between partners.
