This photo was taken in 2007 at a fabulous beach on Grand Cayman Island, 7 mile beach. I love the ocean. I love the sun. I love vacation. I love falling in-love again with my husband, which is a wonderful consequence from vacationing together.
Intimacy in marriage is a foundation. If things aren't going right in the intimacy part of your marriage, then chances are its affecting every other part of your life. It would be a struggle to have full happiness without having this connection. It is a bond that is meant to bring 2 completely different individuals together as one. For a moment in time you get to release the world, release the stress, allowing yourself to give and receive with the one person that means more to you than anyone else.
Every marriage is going to have its ups and downs. It's how we grow together and learn. But as we choose to better ourselves we can create the relationship we want. In my life I have found that we have a healing balm. Intimacy. Intimacy heals. As we work openly with our spouse discovering his needs and her needs related to intimacy we can create a bond that strengthens the foundation of marriage. Some may say it isn't that simple. And I would say, actually it can be. Of course there are emotional and physical problems that may have to be worked with concerning intimacy but for the majority, Intimacy is a natural healer. It strengthens bonds. It renews life and reminds you who is most important in your life.
For men intimacy is a life source. Like food and water. Their need is real and intense. The emotional and spiritual connection men have with intimacy is actually much deeper then most would expect. But men already know this. It is part of their being. Through my studies I have learned women do not understand this. It is not talked about enough. We assume often that men are just MEN. When really men are MEN and its a beautiful thing. Them wanting us is a honor and they really do cherish and adore us. They want to provide for us and make us happy. And nothing brings them greater joy and satisfaction then providing for us moments in time that we can be whole. Our mind, body and spirit are all connected and we share that beautiful moment with them. This is love. This is intimacy. This is absolutely needed to create a healthy marriage.
