From The Generous Wife archive:
I have a perspective to share with y’all.
You are your husband’s only sexual partner. If your husband is going to have his sexual needs legitimately met, it will be by you. If you don’t meet his needs, and to a certain extent his wants, he goes “hungry.” There is no substitute wife who can fill in for you.
It’s a scary and vulnerable place to be for a husband. Your husband needs for you to be his sexual partner. If you don’t, he has no legitimate place to turn. He craves that intimacy – physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually.
I do not believe that this is an insignificant need. Sexuality is an integral part of both men and women. Making time to be sexual with your spouse is a good, healthy and important choice to make.
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. Eleanor Roosevelt.
