with Angella Dykstra
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 don’t know what constitutes a “healthy” sex life, exactly, but I have to guess that it constitutes actually having sex. As I mentioned last week, my husband attended a conference in Atlanta. One of the sessions he attended was about marriage and there were some statistics that shocked him a little bit. There are people our age (mid-thirties) who are married and don’t have sex. Ever.
This does not compute for me. It’s not like I have an insatiable appetite for sex (though the thirties have definitely been better than my twenties), but I definitely like it. A lot. Pleasure aside, it makes me feel more connected to my husband and it gives us a physical bond that keeps us close. As such, we have sex about four to five nights a week, on average. Unless I’m “unclean.” Then we take the week off.
I can’t imagine not having sex with my husband. He’s tall, dark, handsome, funny, witty, and hot, among other great attributes. I can’t resist him. The closeness we get from being physically bonded makes our relationship even better.
How about you? Do you have a “healthy” sex life? Are you both content? Connected? Or do you want/need more?
