NEW EPISODE: How to get past a nasty fight. A wife feels like something is missing in her marriage because her mind wanders during sex. A man needs help with his wife’s spending habits. Mark uses the Flag Page to help a couple with communication issues. Should I tell the guy I’m dating that I’m not a virgin?
In reference to the lady that feels that something is missing, there are plateaus in marriage. If you continue to do the right things in the plateaus, then you will eventually go through a “growth spurt” of intimacy. The book, Passages of Marriage identifies 5 such “growth spurts.” That perspective helped me when things seemed dry. I knew that it wasn’t a permanent place, just a challenge to work through. We’ve been married for 36 years.
