As a Christian, I wholeheartedly believe the issue of sex is an essential component of marriage that cannot be overlooked.
Unfortunately, discussing sex drive is often taboo in the church amongst young couples preparing to take that big leap. Though our society promotes testing out the merchandise before marriage, yet the rate of divorce and perpetual singleness continues to rise at an alarming rate. After finance, sex is the primary reason for divorce in the U.S.
That said, unless you become friends with your partner, allowing yourself to be vulnerable by letting them know what gets your engine raving, you have a better chance of laying a solid foundation early in your marriage that would last a lifetime.
Navigating the Marriage Highway for Singles
Couples must discuss their sexual expectations before tying the knot. Mostly everyone has some kind of sexual fantasy that gets their juice boiling. There’s no shame in putting all your cards on the table to let your partner know your expectations before getting married. For example, if you find sexual role play fascinating, or your preference for sex is of high frequency, don’t be shy about it. Let them know what your foreplay signals are. Questions such as these are crucial to sort out before entering a marriage. Can you imagine if your fantasy is to see your spouse “Pole Dance” for you, but the thought of it appalls them? What about if your ideal frequency for sex is at least four times a week, but your spouse’s ideal frequency is once every month? Before you know it, that marriage is already on a collision course with plenty of grace needed to keep it on its tracks.
