I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I am a married woman. I have been married for ten years (and four months!) and happen to like my husband. Not only do I like him, I love him. I also lust him and if you’ve paid attention to the photos I’ve posted here, it should be pretty clear as to why that is. He’s tall (6′2″), dark (skinned; dude turns a deep shade of brown in the summer) and handsome (muscular build and baby blues).
I don’t talk a lot about sex online or about our sex lives in general (other than that it happens many times a week). I don’t think that the intimate (Heh) details need to be shared online, nor do I need to read the details of anyone else’s sex lives. I mean, people do it, and I’m glad you’re happy but I don’t need to know the ins and outs, you know? (Hee.)
Here’s where I wonder why making innuendos about having sex with your husband are so shocking. I don’t talk about it a lot here, because the label causes many pre-conceived notions that make me cringe because I hate to be associated with labels that don’t apply to me.
I am Christian.
Telling people this means that they will assume that you are a judgmental prude who looks down your nose at everyone. Unfortunately, that is how Christians have been portrayed in the media (as assisted by a select few “prominent” Christians who are making the media’s job easy). None of that is Biblically based and Jesus was the furthest thing from a judgmental prude. Just sayin’.
My husband sent flowers to my office yesterday (see above photo) and I promptly took a photo of them and updated both my Twitter and Facebook with a link to the photo and the following status:
“These were just delivered to my office. Someone’s husband (mine) will be “busy” tonight.”
I thought about saying, “Someone’s husband (mine) was going to “get some”" but thought that might be a little overboard. And YET. I had a TMI (Too Much Information) comment which only made me laugh because it came from another (married) Christian woman.
Ladies, PLEASE. According to my Bible, God CREATED sex. Why so skittish? I don’t need to hear the nitty gritty details, but innuendos are FINE. It means that you’re not spending your evenings alone with a TV remote instead of something a lot more fun.
Why is it so “taboo” to make vague reference to sex? I’m a MARRIED WOMAN. I have THREE KIDS. Odds are, I’ve had sex at least three times (four, actually; I miscarried).
Where do you stand on this? Do innuendos embarrass you? Or do you share it all?
