578: INTIMACY WITH EVERYONE HOME

“When you are really in need you think of creative solutions to your problems.” —Anonymous

everyone home

Like many, you may be faced with a similar, but also extended, set of obstacles during the coronavirus pandemic. Similar to summer break or Christmas break, you may now realize that as everyone is always around, there is a whole lot less privacy.

You may also realize that having everyone in the same space all the time has caused disruptions to other patterns. From schooling the kids at home to changes in opportunities for physical intimacy, it’s something we have to sort out.

Being intimate as a couple can happen no matter the circumstances. You can look for ways to build this area no matter the season. 

If you’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and distracted, know you are not alone. 

This is our shared reality right now. One day blending into the next. 

You’ve got zoom meetings, multiple meals to figure out, a house to manage, and someone calling mommy or daddy 22 times a day.

Finding time for intimacy has now dropped to the bottom of your to-do list.

Intimacy is an important part of your marriage and shouldn’t be an afterthought. This is why you need strategies that will work no matter what the situation is. Don’t give up intimacy just because everyone is home. 

Accept that new routines and strategies are going to need to be created. Trying to follow the same patterns that worked in the past won’t work in the present. You’ll need to have a conversation about how the two of you will stay connected. 

Creating space and time for intimacy during this time may be one of the most creative endeavors your marriage has ever undertaken. 

So make time to talk about how you can remain focused on your marriage while still managing what life at home looks like right now. 

Make this time special for the two of you. In uncertain times, you can grow when you focus on the connection you have, and know that together you will get through this.
