There are “serious” intimacy killers in marriage such as ...
* Loss of trust
* Inability to express your needs and feelings
* Not listening
* Daily separate lives
* Being self-centered
* Angry arguments
* Lack of touch
* Lack of time
Okay, just so you know, we do believe our children are blessings in our lives and not burdens. We love our child with all our hearts, but while raising our daughter, we've had worked extra hard to have “us” time in our marriage. Here are a few things that have helped with the “children” intimacy killers …
* We work hard to eat together by ourselves several times a week.
* We have a lock on our bedroom door.
* We’ve always encouraged our children to sleep in their own beds … not in ours.
* We have always looked for "opportunities" when we had the house to ourselves.
* We strive to "make" time for one another, not "find" time.
* After our child leaves for school, we take a little time every morning to drink a cup of coffee together.
Those are just little things … but very important things. No matter what your intimacy killers look like, work hard to over come them because intimacy is a major glue in your marriage.
We're curious … does your “intimacy killers” list resembled ours?
