Do most men know the difference between love and sex?
A lot of men assume they have that distinction pretty well settled – until they realize the lines are more blurred than they thought, and their marriage suffers because of it.
The fact is, struggles related to sex and intimacy within a marriage are one of the top reasons we’re contacted here at Focus on the Family. So it’s an important issue for us to address.
That’s why we’ve invited one of our favorite guests, Dr. Gary Chapman, to join us for today and tomorrow’s program. Dr. Chapman is an accomplished speaker and author, perhaps most well-known for his book “The Five Love Languages,” which has sold over 10 million copies.
As you’ll hear, issues related to love and sex are far more complicated than most people realize when they first get married. In fact, many younger couples enter marriage thinking of sex and love as the “easy” part of their relationship. Isn’t that how Hollywood portrays it?
In reality, they have no idea the intricate ways that love and sex intertwine with one another to propel a relationship forward or to dismantle it altogether. Many of the couples Dr. Chapman has worked with, for example, say it took them at least a year before they learned to have mutual sexual fulfillment where both spouses felt loved.
From unrealistic expectations to a couple’s age to busy schedules to the influence of children on a relationship, we’ll discuss it all over the next two programs, “Leading Your Wife’s Heart Toward Intimacy.” And, hopefully, we’ll eliminate some of the mystery surrounding this topic and give men a greater understanding of how to lead their wife’s heart toward intimacy.
Recently, we had Arlene Pellicane on the broadcast, discussing the matter of sexuality with wives. But today, we’re talking specifically to men. This two-day program isn’t graphic, but we don’t recommend it for younger children, so please use your discretion.
