Sex & Intimacy In Marriage

Sex and intimacy are key elements of marriage and they are topics that proved to be the greatest hardships in my marriage. I am still learning the importance of sex and intimacy, and I feel there are many other wives like me who need more knowledge and encouragement in this area of marital oneness. I hope that our Christian culture will make it easier to talk about sex and intimacy so that others are aware of its relevance in marriage.

Prayer: Praying With Your Spouse

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for marriages.  I ask that you would be in the center of every relationship and that husbands and wives would submit themselves to you.  I pray that husbands would find time to pray with their wives and I pray that wives would seek opportunities to pray for their husbands.  May they seek you Lord in their goals, finances, parenting, relationship, spiritual growth, and anything else that burdens their heart.  Give them understanding in how intimate of an experience prayer is and give them the courage to pray with their spouse. Hear their cries O Lord, answer them in Jesus Name Amen!

What We Watch Together Matters

The other night my husband and I were cuddling in bed together. He had his laptop out and I asked if we could watch a show or a movie together. We started a new episode of a T.V. series we had recently started. Within the first few seconds a sexually explicit scene came on. My husband responded quickly to turn it off. I was bummed. I knew it was inappropriate for us to continue watching, but there was a part of me that wanted to be able to still watch the show. So I asked my husband, Can’t we just skip past that part?” My husband looked over at me and said with conviction, It isn’t pure.” He reminded of the scripture in Philippians 4:8,

How I Loved My Husband When He Was Addicted To Porn

My husband was addicted to pornography well before we were married. He had mentioned to me his struggle with it while we were dating, and although I was frustrated with him over this issue, we were both convinced it wouldn’t be a struggle once we were married. Marriage did not fix his porn problem. There were many times my husband told me that he had slipped up and viewed pornography. Each time came with a humble apology and a desire to reconcile. He didn’t want this to be an issue anymore. I went through different and many emotions every time he told me, and my responses were always motivated by them, matching the intensity to which I felt them.  I have wept, I have yelled,
