If you can answer yes to either of those questions, you aren’t alone!
Some couples can go months without having any intimate time. Most couples don’t do this on purpose, it’s just life gets crazy!
Between work, keeping up on the house, shuffling kids back and forth between extra-curricular activities life just gets a bit hectic. I’m sure we can all relate to those nights when you get in bed and fall asleep the minute your head hits the pillow.

So if we know that we aren’t making enough time for intimacy in our relationship – why not schedule it? I know it sounds crazy right!?
You’re probably saying to yourself “you seriously want me to pencil my spouse in on the calendar” and the answer is yes I do!
Sit down with your spouse and come up with a time that every week you can dedicate to each other. Nothing and I mean NOTHING should come in-between this time! A lack of intimacy in any marriage will lead up to frustration, resentment and possibly divorce.

Having a schedule will ensure that no matter what life throws at us, we are always making time for our marriage.
