“So many people hear the words physical intimacy and think about sex. There are so many layers to being physically intimate with your spouse, choosing just one aspect shortchanges both of you.” —Anonymous
Touch is so important and yet touch in any form may be absent or inconsequential in your marriage at this time.
This absence of touch or in the quality of the touch, leads to a feeling of being unwanted, unseen, undesired.
It’s interesting that touch is often one of the first ways that you begin to express your interest in your spouse when you first met.
Then you start your lives together and before you know it touch is one of the first things to go.
The most obvious absence of physical intimacy is a lack of sex. But it’s more than that.
Right now you may be struggling with little to no physical intimacy of any form (hugs, kisses, cuddling, holding hands, etc).
Without touch, without physical intimacy your marriage can feel like a relationship of roommates.
It can feel like you are just sharing the same house and the same responsibilities but really have nothing that would differentiate yourselves as a married couple.
The two of you need touch.
Your bodies were designed for it.
You were designed to fit together.
You have to create opportunities to connect and you have to be intentional about doing so.
In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about why physical touch is an important area of connection for you and your spouse.
