I am currently reading Joyce Meyer's book "Making Marriage Work". I haven't been doing a lot of reading lately but I picked the book up this weekend and read a chapter and a bit. The chapter was entitled "Let's Communicate", but the chapter was basically all about s*x. I was quite intrigued to learn that being intimate with your partner is a form of communication. You are communicating your love to one another. She also says that under no circumstances should one turn down their partner unless for prayer. What's a little ironic is that I have always felt that I couldn't live without that part of our relationship because to me it was the only way I feel loved. So, in fact, I'm not completely wrong about that. There should be other ways too, but intimacy says a strong message to your partner. And, unfortunately, letting it fade off as you get older can send out a bad or wrong message. It's a very important part of marriage. I was happy to have that affirmation in this book and even read it to my husband. Did you know?

Communication is very important. Intimacy is obviously on form of communication, but without a loving relationship it can be a very empty, unsatisfactory act.

The next chapter is called "Is There a Nicer Way to Say That?" which is more on verbal communication. It is a very good book.

Sounds like an interesting book. It is easy to let things fade after being together for a while. It takes work and effort to make a relationship work and I do believe that intimacy is a big part of it.

Without intimacy you're basically living as room mates.
