I recently heard about a couple in their eighties who were in counseling for sexual issues. It’s a true story. He was complaining that his wife wasn’t giving him the type of sex he enjoyed. After their counseling session, they left arm in arm ready for an amorous evening together.
Sex is such an important part of marriage. It is something we should both work at to keep it exciting and satisfying for both of us as married couples in Christ. Without sex and having fun in marriage the relationship becomes mundane and business-like. Sex is the only unique feature of marriage and is designed by God to bring pleasure and intimacy for a lifetime.

I was on a television program a few years ago where they were taking calls from their viewers. One of the viewers that called was a lady from the northeast. She was in her sixties and complained that her husband had erectile dysfunction and wasn’t meeting her sexual needs. When she confronted him about the problem and asked him to get medical treatment that would have easily cured the problem, his response was, “I’m O.K., I’m happy just like we are.” She was devastated.
Obviously her husband was an insensitive and selfish man. I guess he thought his feelings were the only ones that were important in the marriage. I like what Dr. Phil says regarding sex. He says, “If you don’t think sex is important, just ask the person who isn’t getting any.”
