Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him. -Gen. 2:18
Sex was made for Marriage. God created sex for marriage. Yes! GOD created sex! He created it to be enjoyed by a Man and a woman within the boundaries of marriage. God really wants us to enjoy it. I know it may be hard to believe for some people that sex is not supposed to be nasty. And so many married people think it is a dirty thing, separate from God. Do you know you can pray about your sex life (when married)? do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God -Phil 4:6
We women don’t need sex as much as men (usually-there are always exceptions). Due to the way God created man with the certain hormones, the arousal by sight, and the one track mind, men have more of a sexual drive. Did you know that some men wish they can turn off that “arousal-by-sight” sometimes? It is such a distraction sometimes and very hard to control. They don’t mean to disrespect us by looking at other women (most men). Although this is not an excuse for them to do it, this just helps us understand a little more.
Sex is very much a link to a man’s ego. In this area a man’s ego can be very sensitive (fragile). A lot of the time we may not know because he will either shut down or play it off. Every time we (wives) turn him down for sex or don’t do it within a week’s time he feels rejected. Now don’t laugh or make fun because we get the same way if he does not show some type of non-sexual affection in the same amount of time. So to say “Men need sex”.
Whether you want to admit it or not, wives, we need it too. When you have sex a soul bond is made. It is like glue in your relationship. It helps keep you two connected. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. -Eph. 5:31 That is why you need to have sex during problems and tough times in your marriage. What married couple doesn’t like “make up sex?” Sex helps protect your marriage and keeps your husband full (Wives don’t starve him sexually; he can and will get weak).
The devil hates marriage and he will do anything to break it up. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. -1Pet. 5:8 Even the devil knows that God made marriage to be wonderful and God is very pleased with it. But the devil also knows that if he can keep a husband and wife from having sex (by any means necessary) then he can definitely break up that marriage.
Too many “No’s” can break your husband down. This can cause a major crack in your marriage. All the devil needs is a crack to sliver in and crumble your whole marriage. Sex keeps the marriage solid and seals any cracks that are trying to form. Then instead of battling each other, you two come together as a team and battle anything that may try to come in between your marriage.
