How To Improve Intimacy In Marriage


The excuse most couples give is that there isn’t enough time to spend with each other. In a world where couples are bothered about what to eat, drink and buy; having spare time for your spouse is even more crucial than ever.

Husbands and wives are making up excuses about being overwhelmed with the demands of heavy workloads and children. This leads to increase sense of disconnection that gets expressed as problems with communication, disagreements over finances, parenting conflicts, or insufficient sex.

So how can you improve intimacy in your marriage? Here are a couple of tips to get your started:

Improve sense of connection: By improving the sense of connection, feelings of trust and mutual respect typically increase, you will be able to put in place those cornerstones needed to get things back on the groove. By improving the sense of connection in your marriage, it is easier to resolve conflicts of any nature that comes up.

Schedule 15 to 20 minutes of conversation every day: Communication is key in any marriage. As a matter of fact, communication breakdown is the reason why most couples have problems of intimacy in their marriage. Scheduling 15 to 20 minutes of conversation with your spouse every day will promote intimacy between the two of you.

Spend at least a couple of hours in each other’s arms every week: Where couples are too busy with daily office schedules and do not have enough time to spend together in bed at least once a day; it is important to spend a few hours in each other’s arm every week. Feeling the warmness of your partner in your arm every week creates this sense of togetherness and intimacy.

Sex at least twice or thrice a week should be encouraged: Sex is the most vital tool to bond with your partner. Couples who spend fewer times making love suffer from lack of intimacy and get involved in too much quarrel and fruitless arguments all the time. Do not deny your partner the fun and joy of sexual intimacy at least two times a week.

Work together at common goals: Another way to strengthen existing intimacy between you and your partner is to have a common goal. Having a common goal to work at will help you achieve emotional, intellectual, and heart- to- heart conversations. Having a common goal will also help you to share your joys, fears, frustrations, sorrows and, yes, anger with each other.
