You need to have intimacy in marriage in order to make the relationship happy and healthy. Here’s why you always need to work on it.
There are hundreds of tips for making a marriage last from people who have made it work and also from those who wish they could have. But the one thing you’ll hear time and time again is that intimacy in marriage is crucial. And it’s not just sexual intimacy, either.
Being close emotionally is even more important than having a healthy sex life. You need to bond and maintain a close connection all throughout your marriage. If you don’t, it’ll be really hard to make your love last through all the hardships marriage brings.
Many people believe a marriage will just function on its own
Because you’re married. You’ve already proclaimed your love and so you feel like there’s nothing more to do. But that’s just not how love works. You need to be actively working toward a healthy relationship all the time.
It takes a lot of work and effort to make a marriage last. Those who get married thinking their love can last based on how much they care going into the marriage will find themselves very disappointed. A relationship can only last if both people are putting in the effort to maintain the intimacy.
