Are you in a sexless marriage? Or do you have infrequent sex (like a few times a year)? Or do you have sex often, but it feels more robotic, routine and mundane? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then I'm betting you may be frustrated in multiple areas of your relationship.
Typically speaking, a sexless marriage is a troubled marriage.
To restore sexual intimacy within marriage, you must begin by having a holistic understanding of what a sacred, healthy and successful relationship looks like. Sex is a powerful force, a deeply bonding experience, and a sacred sharing of bodies, minds and spirits that is, in great part, the glue of a beautiful spiritual union between partners.
In this episode, I define sexuality in marriage, discuss how to approach the issues, the four actions that are hurting your intimacy journey, and the nine steps to restore sexual intimacy. I also discuss medical conditions that dampen or prevent sex and what to do if you cannot experience sexual intimacy within marriage.
