The Four Elements of Marital Intimacy - April 8

 

Keeping Alive Romance and Security...

 

These are the four elements of marital intimacy:

 

* Unconditional security, a lifetime commitment to caring for someone.

 

* Meaningful communication, daily sharing your feeings, needs, hopes, and dreams (and being a good listener when the other person speaks).

 

* Romantic experiences, setting your schedule to include intimate times together rather than letting the pressures of life set your schedule for you.

 

* Intimate touch, since 8 to 10 loving touches a day keep the marriage counselor away!
