1. I love the book And They Were Not Ashamed by Laura Brotherson. A great read on bringing sexual relations into the light and in the context they should be used. Helped me out so much in this regard!

  2. My husband and I met when we were 12 in youth group at church, started courting at 15 and married at 19. We saved sex for marriage and were both virgins when we got married…we didn’t even have past relationships! I thought married life would be a piece of cake. That was until the sexual abuse of my childhood creeper into my marriage bed. I had a VERY hard time being physically intimate. Thank GOD I have an amazing, patient, and understanding husband!! But it has really bothered me over the years. My husband’s patience and willingness to talk about ALL my feelings helped bring me into the fullness of sexual intimacy with him…but ever so often it creeps up again and I clam up. Thank goodness for grace! We’ve been married 12 years now, and I’m just grateful it’s something we could work through.

  3. My Husband and I met when we were 14. I never had another man in my life. We married at the age of 19. My husband and I have been married for 38 years, within those years he has been unfaithful. The most recent deception occurred when I became ill approximately 10 years ago. The woman confronted me, and he was bringing her into our home when I returned to work.
    He will not go anyplace with me and over the past year he has failed to be affectionate at all.
    I do care for him and attempt to show him affection , but he pushes me away to the point that he has been physically abusive. On December 1st, I invited him to a function. He informed me that he does not want to go anyplace with me or do anything with me. He does not want anything to do with me , but I refuse to believe him. He tells me that I think that I am perfect. He accuses me of being a witch and trying to put a spell on him , when I invite him to go to church or pray with me. He has greatly changed after her has met this woman. Sometimes I feel that I cannot compete with her due to the fact that she is so much “fun”. She drinks and does so much more. I do not.
    I am still serving him in every way, but I don’t know what more I can do. I am grateful that I found this site. It gives me Hope and I know that GOD will return him to me once more.
    Thank you for all of the advice and guidance.
