Building intimacy and keeping it fresh

One of the questions people often ask during PreMarital Counseling is “How do we protect our chemistry and keep our intimacy alive over the course of our marriage?” I appreciate this question as the answer lies in the heart of PreMarital Counseling.

To protect intimacy you have to practice intimate behaviors

     Sharing thoughts

     Respecting secrets

     Being vulnerable

     Tolerating differences

     Helping out with household tasks

     Being trustworthy

     Demonstrating loyalty

     Spending dedicated time together

     Meeting needs

     Showing respect

     Understanding each other

In our sessions I can show you the things that build intimacy in a marriage and help you avoid those things that build barriers against it.
