“And it’s still true, no matter how old you are, when you go into the world it is best to hold hands and stick together.” —Robert Fulghum

In the series “Our Marriage Vows” we are stripping away all of the circumstantial topics that get put onto marriages, and diving deep into the core of what marriage is. Maybe you’re like Alisa who, on her wedding day, said her vows as a formality — because she was excited to get to the good stuff — the party. What she has realized and wishes she knew then was the vows WERE the “good stuff”.

In Part 2 – “To Have and To Hold”, we focus on the physical unity that is established and upheld in marriage. Both sexual and non-sexual touch, our bodies are to be given to our spouse in a unique way that doesn’t exist outside of marriage.

Do you allow your spouse to have you — completely? Not just parts of you, not just on months that end in “y” – but wholly, unconditionally?

We’ve struggled with this in many different forms throughout the years. We have different levels of sexual desire. We have different responses to physical touch. We have used sex as a weapon. It’s been more effort than we expected in some seasons.

It’s important that you have non-sexual physical touch as well as sexual touch with your spouse. If there is only one being used, your marriage is missing a vital component. Having and holding each other’s bodies can help your marriage go from good to great.
