New word to add to the English Dictionary
I'm from Texas, yall means you all (all of you),both of you, etc.
Yep, there's one or two reasons for not having nookie so frequently.... do I need to list them?
One is because we have teenagers, second is I'm knackered when I go to bed and often go to sleep before he does. BUT having teenagers means they ARE out of the house sometimes and we do have the house to ourselves!!!
No excuse really is there??
We have 3 boys (9, 6, 2) and a 4th on the way. We make time to be intimate together. We tell the kids it's mom and dads alone time, we go upstairs and lock the door. There isn't any reason to hide the fact that you have sex from your children (I'm not saying do it in front of them) but you don't have to keep it a deep and dark secret. It's healthy for them to see both of you as an example as what to do. It gives them that basis on how to act when they get married.
It seems like sex is generally overlooked by busy people as one of the first things to go. Yet, what we don't often realize is that as sex goes so does the marriage. It's generally really hard to hate/dislike/or be angry at someone you are intimate with on a frequent basis. It allows for us to connect to one another and bond. We are sexual creatures and it's the one thing that is different between a relationship and a friend.
As for sitting on the couch, we are usually at different ends of the couch watching TV. But, I WOULD like to move out of my cosy corner and snuggle up to him. He's NOT the snuggling up to kinda person, but I KNOW he would like it!!
I am not either, for me touch is not one of my love languages. But my wife let me know how important touch was for her. With me knowing how important it is I make it a point to touch her a lot. Try telling your hubby you'd like him to sit with you and hold you. Let him know what you are wanting and you may very well be surprised! Also, ask him what things he would like as well.
My wife and I generally never get mad at each other or fight. I've found in 11 years of marriage the times ARE fighting is when our intimacy is lacking. Whenever the time frame moves from every 2-3 days to a week or more, every time it does we start fighting. After we work together to solve the issues and be come intimate again the fighting goes away.
That's why that love test I gave you is so great. It's a good starting way for both of you to show each other what areas are important to you.
