Sex and affair proofing your marriage

Our relationship with our life partner, is one of the most important and exciting relationships we will have and whilst it is one of constant change, learning and improvement, it is easy to get caught up in the demands of life to find we are living our lives narrowly focusing on everything other than our partner.

Whilst the quality of our sexual relationship often reflects the quality of our overall relationship, neglecting or forgetting our marriage – and the needs of our partner for affection and intimacy – can have dire and expected consequences. If neglected there is a greater risk of an affair both for the one feeling neglected and the partner neglecting the other and none of us are exempt from the risk of an affair.

Affair proof your marriage and establishing boundaries is vital: for example, don’t get into a situation where your relationship could be at risk. Your relationship with your partner is important and exclusive. Protect each other by:

  • Build each other up
  • Fill emotional needs
  • Set boundaries – avoid meetings, dinners etc with people of opposite sex
  • Keep sex alive – to love is to give
  • Be careful with emails
  • Pornography – to be avoided.
  • Always keep your sexual relationship interesting. Remember anything we constantly repeat will lose impact. Try to vary place and be creative, vary who initiates it.

    Through continued commitment and loyalty we can tackle the ups and downs of our marriage together. Don’t allow the daily grind to become the focus to the exclusion of your marriage. The most important thing you can start doing is to focus on your partner and your sexual relationship. Affair proof your marriage and establish boundaries and be creative. You will get there if you are willing to invest the time and effort. Be proactive and do this for your marriage today.
