“Ladies, if you are married and are at odds with your husband, it could be for a variety of reasons and in your anger or bitterness you withhold intimacy from your husband, you are setting him up for sexual temptation outside the marriage.
Sexual intimacy is a natural desire and need just like sleep and eating is. My advice is to figure out what your angry about and deal with that. As women,our bodies are also designed with the natural desires for sexual intimacy, if you are lacking that natural desire, it may be more than emotional, it may be a lack of hormones or your bodies natural chemicals are out of balance.
Sexual intimacy provides so much more than just the physical it acts as a bonding agent that can actual improve the immune system. So go enjoy that natural desire and boost that potentially lagging immune system.”

Thank you Eileen for sharing your advice! I also know the same can also be true on the flip side if the husband is withholding intimacy as well. So it is important for both the husband and wife to come together sexually on a regular basis. For my husband and I, we have both struggled with pornography in the past and noticed that it decreased our desire for sex with each other. God is bringing healing to our marriage and restoring what the enemy intended to destroy.
What are you thoughts? Anything else that can hinder sexual intimacy in marriage?
