"someone has said, just as the devil will do everything he can to bring two people together sexually before marriage, he does everything he can to keep them away from each other after marriage. … if there ever was an issue that isn’t really the issue, it is sex. over the years i’ve had dozens of couples come to me complaining they weren’t getting along. often the answer to the problem lay i the fact that she wanted intimacy and affection without all the sexual touching, while he wanted sex and was not being too patient with moments of affection only. sex for him and affection for you is a two-way street. just a he should minister to your spirit to have access to your body, so, too, you should minister to his body if you want to gain access to his spirit."
