I love it when Lea and I read books together. Currently we’re reading the book, “Red Hot Monogamy – Making Your Marriage Sizzle”, by Bill & Pam Farrel. I’ll read a couple of chapters, she’ll read a couple of chapters, and then we’ll talk about the things we’ve read.
- loss of trust
- inability to express your needs and feelings
- not listening
- being self-centered
- angry arguments
- lack of touch
- lack of time
After talking about intimacy killers for a minute we decided that the above list didn’t fit us very well. So we decided to make our own list of intimacy killers that we have struggled with in our marriage. So without further ado, here is the first ever top 10 list that Lea has actually helped me to comprise. Trey and Lea’s top ten intimacy killers….
- Babies (Thankfully we’re past this.)
- Toddlers (Past this one, too)
- Niños (if you speak Spanish)
- Taylor, Parker, Connor & Cooper
- Yes, you guessed it, children
Okay, just so you know, we do believe our children are blessings in our lives and not burdens. But, after we finished our list we just laughed and laughed. I asked her if it would be okay to share our top ten list with the blogging world. She said, “Sure, go ahead.” God is sure good to me to put Lea in my life. I definitely married up!
Has your “intimacy killer’s” list ever resembled ours?
