If you read my last post, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Wives and mothers often feel overwhelmed by the demands that are made upon them. Husbands, children, aging parents, work, volunteer responsibilities and friends. This list goes on and on. In this post, I would like to point out that with a change of attitude, attending to your husband’s needs can be a fun part of your life.
Remember sexual fulfillment to most husbands is more about quality. Pursue him and let him know that you enjoy this aspect of your relationship. A great way to do this is to actually enjoy it. Generally speaking, women need to step out of the mindset that sex is another job and begin to view it as a fun activity. From time to time you may be an exhausted mom or maybe you’re a menopausal woman. Most husbands will understand these drains on your energy, if you have been taking his needs seriously all along. Often, women are not aware that a man enjoys variety and from time to time a wife can use a little creativity by satisfying her husband without using a lot of physical energy. It is important for women to understand that men need a regular release of pressure. This is not about his morality – it is biological.
If you find yourself always too exhausted, you may want to evaluate your load. You married this man and it isn’t fair to him or your marriage to put him at the bottom of your list. To put it simply, what is more important, having little Joanna involved in multiple activities or the strength and protection of your marriage.
