It’s a new year! Most of us have made some New Year’s resolutions. Was your marriage on your list? I would like to challenge you to do something different in your marriage this year. What I have found as a marriage therapist is that most couples possess the magic they need to have a sizzling hot marriage. The problem is that most couples have a couple of things that pours water on the flame. They either get out of sync over a busy lifestyle or struggle with the inability to understand one another. It boils down to a failure to connect. Failing to connect over an extended period of time is what gets couples in trouble. All too often the effect of this extended disconnection shows up in the bedroom. This is why couples should pay close attention to their sexual relationship. They should not see sex as an optional activity and, in my opinion, should strive to be sexual with each other at least once a week. This ensures that the connection stays solid. If for some reason sex is not happening weekly then that is your clue that something is out of balance between you. Either you are not spending enough time together or not understanding each other. So both of you need to make it your business to get back in balance.
So with all that said I am issuing a 52 week sex challenge for married couples. I challenge you to enjoy mutually satisfying sexual experiences every week this year. For some of you that means something needs to happen tonight. 🙂 If you miss a week then be sure you make up the next. If you happen to be a couple that enjoys multiple sexual encounters each week that is no excuse to skip a week of sexual expression. If you have difficulty keeping this challenge up don’t hesitate to reach out for help. I will periodically send out encouraging posts to keep you motivated. If you like you can keep track of the challenge right here. Each week I will provide you some encouraging quips to keep you focused on your goal.
