Married without Children

This could be a period of waiting if you are already hoping and planning for children, or a time to consider how children factor into God’s design for your family. Regardless, it is a precious opportunity for you and your spouse to define and strengthen your marriage.

If you are waiting on the Lord for the gift of children, this could be a difficult time when issues of sexuality may arise. Be assured that it’s okay to seek extra encouragement or objective (and professional/medical) perspective, but approach help as a couple to safeguard your marriage.

Experts say that the best sex is that within a committed, monogamous marriage where neither party has had prior sexual relationships. Ensure that you seek out healthy and honouring resources to keep the sexual romance alive, and be brave to also address any skeletons in the closet that could surface.
