This is the second post in the 1/2 Marathon being orchestrated by the Christian Marriage Bloggers Association. I have a bunch of questions left from the A Males Perspective teleconference I spoke at last week. As such, I’ll be using this marathon to answer some of the questions I received.
I should start by saying, I don’t fit the male stereotype. I love foreplay. I like kissing, I like hugging, I like feeling my wife. I also recognize that I need foreplay in order to perform sexually better. On the other side, my wife also does not fit the female stereotype. She gets annoyed with foreplay, she wants to “get on with it”, though she does recognize that she also needs foreplay in order to perform sexually better. We do fit the male/female stereo typical sex drives though, so, here’s my opinion on the matter:
One of our largest topics for fighting conflict (in the past) is that I (from her perspective) “want sex all the time”. I have pretty hard time denying that allegation, because, well, it’s true. I see this theme a lot in my readings on message
OK, I know, I know, every blog about marriage, relationships, etc has at least one article with that title. They usual have a large list of techniques, activities. Maybe they suggest a blindfold (gasp). But that’s the easy stuff. I think you guys are ready
OK, this is largely a rant, so hang on. We’re currently enjoying our fourth newborn. All our children have been breastfed, and this one is no different. Let me start by saying that I 100% agree with breastfeeding children. I think it’s the healthiest thing
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this topic for the last few days, weeks, months, years. I guess it’s been on my mind since I got married, or shortly afterwards. As stated in my first post, my marriage started off a little rocky,
If your wife is like mine in this regard, and from my conversations with other men, many are, your wife does not like to tell you what she wants from you. Generally she can’t tell you what she wants at all. Your life is full
We recently welcomed our fourth child into our family and I thought I’d write a bit to reflect what’s going on. Specifically how pregnancy and after the birth affect sex from the male perspective. Now, I know this may upset some of the women who read this,
For the first 8 or so years of our marriage, we were in constant argument was the frequency of sex. This seems to be common among many Christian marriages.
Why is it a struggle? How do you resolve the struggle?
