Romance in marriage, Scripturally and spiritually


A.M. (after marriage) Romance

"Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth. As a loving kind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love" Prov. 5:18, 19. This intimate relationship of a man and his wife is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest. God says be ravished (intoxicated or exhilarated, Hebrew) with her love, this is referring to this wonderful physical expression of love in marriage. This intimacy is not only for procreation but also for pleasure! "Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge" Heb 13:4. More on this in the next section on sex. Don't miss this. Stay with us.
Keep romance in marriage

Holding hands, hugging and kissing MUST continue after the wedding bells have stopped ringing. This is especial essential for the wife's sake. Kind sir, you were Romeo incarnate while dating her. You took the initiative to hold her hand, to hug her and to kiss her. A good strong and healthy intimate relation in the bed begins by holding her hands, hugging and kissing all through the day. This tells her you love her and not just her body. Doesn't that make sense?
Look and touch

A man is aroused and prepared for this intimate relation by sight as well as touch, a woman is aroused mostly by touch, tender caressing. This is so important for both husband and wife to understand and to respond. Let him look for his sake. In fact, encourage him to look. Better yet, entice him to look so he won't be enticed to look at other women. He will love you the more for it. So much more on this later.
Why does God say for a man not to look at a woman to lust after her? Because a man is aroused by sight. That is why God says for women to be dressed in 1 Tim. 2:9-10 "women adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly. As is proper for women making a claim to godliness." God wants women to conceal the intimate parts of our body. The world does all it can to reveal as much of the female body as they can get away with. Remember, "Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes" Matt. 18:7. Ladies be sure you don't put out a stumbling block by the way you dress, before men who are not your husband. Rom. 14:13.
Let him touch for your sake as well as his. "Let her breast satisfy you at all times." Still ahead, Why some women have a hard time with this admonition and the cure for it. Don't miss the next couple of weeks for great truths, right out of the Bible, for a marriage filled with "rejoicing" Pro 5:18.
O dear people, "happy marriages don't happen, they are worked at." "Live with your wives in an understanding way" 1 Peter 3:7. We must understand each other and do what is essential for both to enjoy their marriage and the intimate relations that God intends to be enjoyed.
Good news, Christ died for our sins, paid our debt and rose again so God, who is holy, could forgive us our sins, give us a new birth and finally take us to heaven instead of us going to hell. Believe and receive the Lord Jesus, right now, if you haven't already. You are loved with agape love by God and me, all because of Calvary, sumner visit my inJesus to check out thousands of groups and messages
