A sexless or sex-starved marriage is a suffering marriage…it’s not marriage at play at all. It can at best be described as FRIENDSHIP at play.
Per Bible standards or rules of Christianity, SEX is what differentiates married people from unmarried people. Sex is virtually the only thing prohibited for the unmarried or let me put it this way, friends can do everything married people do except to engage in sexual intercourse.
So, what’s the point being married and not having sex on the regular? This is not to say marriage is all about sex…I’m addressing sexless or sex-starved marriage.
Sex is what separates the boys from the men…if you want to put it in a funny way. Friendship is good in marriage but it should never take the place of sex.
Regular sex in a marriage makes God happy because it solves a lot of problems in the marriage. Couples are happier in a marriage where sex is not lacking…and the devil is always defeated.
The devil’s main goal is to see couples not connect, knowing very well intimacy is a strong bond in marriage. He will get you to fight, disagree on sex, not want sex, not enjoy it and not want to even try harder. Meanwhile remember “a great sex life requires effort”. Once you stop trying, the devil wins.
Sex is an indicator of love whether you like it or not. Can you have sex with someone you don’t love or have mutual connection with? Yes! But at best, that will be described as abuse or rape at worse.
I believe all things being equal, any man or woman who is sexually satisfied will not leave his or her marriage.
It is said that when a man or woman is sexually satisfied, they are more emotionally stable.
It is also said sex is not only for making children so you should never let the children rob you of a satisfying sexual life. Be mindful that the sex preceded the children.
And be sure to note that in marriage, any time you give needless excuses for sex, the devil wears a silly grin of victory. 😊
OK, that should be enough for today. Hope you’ll also share your thoughts with us. Cheers!
