For anyone listening that wishes intimacy was less conflict and more connection, this episode is for you!

I messed up

Two weeks ago, I released a podcast episode about dead bedrooms. I read an email from a man who is in a lot of pain around his relationship. So I addressed areas where I could see that he could work on in his relationship, but unfortunately, that episode lacked compassion and I was wrong. So I want another chance to do it again properly this time.

I’ve been there before

I’ve been there before, to an extent, where the quality of the intimate relationship isn’t what you hope it could be. It can be extremely frustrating, lonely, and even hopeless at times when you feel like you’re stuck in a relationship where everything else seems to be going well, except when it comes to sex.

For the spouse with the higher desire, he or she feels rejected and hurt. For the lower desire spouse, he or she feels confused and overwhelmed.

Good sex is important for a thriving marriage

As I’ve stated before, I believe good sex is healthy for a thriving growing marriage relationship. Sex can be replenishing for the relationship. It can be bonding has many health benefits and breeds life into an otherwise mundane partnership.

However, according to Justin Lee Miller PhD, he’s a sex researcher he says about one in seven americans are in relationships with little to no sex. There are probably as many reasons as there are couples for why they’ve developed that pattern of intimacy avoidance in their marriages. It’s hard to make generalizations in this area.

But I am on a mission to eliminate poverty and bedrooms everywhere. I want to help couples overcome their challenges that inhibit them from fully giving generously and fully receiving the goodness that an intimate marriage can provide.

I received many emails from people who are confused and struggling in their marriage and I’m grateful for your emails and your messages. With their permission. I want to share another email today. The names and other identifying details have changed, but their story is a real story.

My co-host, Amy Langford, has been a guest on my podcast before (see episode number 101). She’s a very talented marriage and intimacy coach, and works with me in my Next Level Program and teaches and coaches alongside me at our marriage retreats!
