pillars of intimacy

When you’ve been doing something for a while, not only do you find that there’s a lot to reflect on, but you can see patterns emerge.

Marriage is no different.

That’s why getting intentional about your marriage is so important. By becoming intentional, you’ll be able to see the pillars of intimacy you can strengthen. You’ll be able to do this by building a stronger connection and closeness in each one.

These pillars of intimacy are so important!

Emotional intimacy is more than just the words that you speak. It’s how you say them and how you break the cycles of conflict and ineffective communication.

Physical intimacy isn’t just sex and even if you’re not “touchy feely” you can have a strong physical intimacy pillar.

Financial intimacy is something that has to be talked about in a marriage. Financial intimacy is more than just how much was your Target run or how much is the car payment.

Spiritual Intimacy is your shared faith. This pillar is strengthened when you and your spouse engage one another through prayer, attending services, doing a devotional and other practices.

Recreational Intimacy and having fun, sharing experiences is more important after the wedding than before.

Sexual Intimacy isn’t just sex, and it isn’t something to be overlooked, dismissed or weaponized. Sexual intimacy is romance to initiation, foreplay, and sexual intercourse.

Marriage isn’t one dimensional, it was never intended to be that way. That’s why knowing and understanding the 6 Pillars of Intimacy® is the key to transforming every aspect of your marriage. 

Know where you are strong because where you are strong; you have skills you can take to the other pillars where you want to level up.
