Sex and intimacy are a vital part of a Christian marriage, but not many of us love to talk about it! And while it makes me blush to put this out there, I hope that the wisdom my husband and I have gained over the years can be helpful to you, know matter how long you’ve been married.
My husband and I often find ourselves talking with other couples about our sex lives.
I blame him, because he’s a dude who is unabashed about his enjoyment of it. He likes to talk about it and has no hesitation bringing it up. 🙂
However, as shy as I can be about talking about it, it’s a huge deal!
Few topics create more heartache when not addressed. We need to talk about it, within the marriage as well as with other couples so that we can help one another where needed.
As my husband puts it, sex can be a barometer for your relationship’s health.
If that part of the relationship isn’t running smoothly, there are typically some other problems as well. I have yet to find anyone who has a strong, healthy Christian marriage who isn’t, uh, “doing it” in a healthy way.
Over the 11 years since we exchanged our vows, we’ve received and later given quite a bit of advice on this topic.
If we could condense it all and share it with newlyweds or a couple struggling with their sexual relationship, here are five Christian marriage intimacy tips we’d share.
