The happiness of marriage is not only or even mainly physical.
With the sex, there ought to be a deep sense of safety, a sense of being loved and accepted for who you are, a desire to please without the need to impress.
In a day when people are marrying later and later, and more and more are resorting to online matchmaking, we probably need to be reminded that marriage really is less about compatibility than commitment.
After all, there has never been a less compatible relationship than a holy God and his sinful bride, and that’s the mold we’re aiming for in our marriages.
The love of husband and wife, which gives life to a new human person, is a reflection of the love of the Blessed Trinity.A friend of mine recently got married and said even though her relationship was not struggling, her and her FI (at the time) purchased The Love Dare for their devotional. : Both members of a married couple attend 2 separate 5 hour visits, complete 3 diet records across 3 days, and get paid a total of 0 each (total of 0 per couple). Apart from questions of attraction and chemistry, which are not insignificant, the Bible articulates some roles for wives and husbands.
A husband ought to protect and provide for his wife (Ephesians –29).If low-commitment sexual promiscuity sounds like freedom, we don’t get it.
