Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 7:1-7, Hebrews 13:4
Despite extra-marital sex being glamorized by the media, sex inside of marriage is supposed to be exciting! God intended for all sex to happen inside the boundaries of marriage, based on a loving, committed relationship and safe from all forms of sexual disease and emotional distress. It not only creates new life, but it also nurtures a strong bond between husband and wife. There are responsibilities for both the husband and wife to create an atmosphere that encourages enjoyable sex in their marriage. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains God's plan for a healthy sex life--one of the keys to happiness and security in marriage.
"A great sex life allows a married couple to share pleasure, enhance intimacy, and doctors even say it serves as a wonderful tension reducer to deal with the hassles of life and marriage. It energizes the marital bond and enhances feelings of desire and desirability. On the other hand, Dr. Andrew Atwood, a marriage and family expert, estimates that 17 million married people in the United States have no sex at all." --Dr. Merritt
