Sex helps fix relationship problems
Is talking the best way to work out our relationship problems? I’ve have been working with couples for a long time. People often get told in marital counseling that it’s a good idea to sit down with your partner and talk. Now that’s great advice, but the reality is for some partners, it’s just not as comfortable to sit and have a long conversation as it is with others.
I spoke to one particular therapist, he considered himself to be a guy friendly therapist. He discussed how it may be difficult for guys to sit down and have a long conversation with their wives. He tells his clients that it may be hard to talk with her, but, you know, you may squirm a little bit. But, over time, it will become easier, and you’ll be able to get through the conversation more comfortably. You’ll feel better about the whole process.
It’s also true that good sex is good for marriage and relationships. But, I’m wondering, why don’t the same therapists say to couples, “You know, you should get together every night for about a half hour and have sex”? You know, it maybe a little uncomfortable for the woman at first. You may have some difficulty getting into it, but after a while, she’ll become used to it. She’ll become comfortable with it. It’s because most therapists don’t talk about sex as being a part of a healthy relationship. But it absolutely is a critical part of a healthy relationship, and people should be doing it more.
