The Post That Makes Me Glad My Family Doesn’t Know I Blog

Have y’all looked at One Woman’s World yet? Voting is open! (I haven’t voted yet since I’m still looking over all the great nominations. But I will. And so should you.)

Jeana started a Valentine’s meme, and here’s the question: What’s one thing you have learned to do differently to make your marriage better? or one thing you think is important to a good marriage?

If you’re not married, look at your parents or a couple you know that has a good marriage and tell something you admire about their relationship. And no pressure to tell the most important thing; in fact try to write something different than what’s already been written, if you get tagged after several other people have already done it. If you get tagged, link back to whoever tagged you, so we can follow the trail and see what others have said.

I’m going to be brief here. But this is sincerely my answer, much as I wish I HAD NOT BEEN TAGGED, JEANA! Because? A little embarrassed. But anyway.

What makes a marriage better?

Sex. Nightly. Very few exceptions. Who cares if someone’s mad or isn’t getting his/her way about something? Don’t ever manipulate or withhold. It’s silly, even if you get what you want in the short term because you lose a lot in the long run. Sex is more important to men that women can possibly understand. I think, anyway. (And if I’m wrong?  Uh, no one’s complaining.)

Need Word on it? Of course ya do. I like how The Message puts it:  (I Cor 7:2-4) 2Certainly–but only within a certain context. It’s good for a man to have a wife, and for a woman to have a husband. Sexual drives are strong, but marriage is strong enough to contain them and provide for a balanced and fulfilling sexual life in a world of sexual disorder. 3The marriage bed must be a place of mutuality–the husband seeking to satisfy his wife, the wife seeking to satisfy her husband. 4Marriage is not a place to "stand up for your rights." Marriage is a decision to serve the other, whether in bed or out.

Please consider yourself tagged!

Nightly? And people say it stops after you start having kids. What do they know, huh?
