Question: I JUST RECENTLY GOT MARRIED AND I WANT TO KNOW IF THERES ANYWAY THAT I CAN KEEP MY HUSBAND INTERESTED IN ME SEXUALLY ALL THE TIME. YOU KNOW SO HE DOESNT GET THE `WANDERING EYE`. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.
Answer: There are many things that you can do to help strengthen your marriage. For example, researchers have found that people who are friends are more likely to stay together. To this finding I ask what are the characteristics of couples who are friends. I believe the characteristics of people who are friends include: 1) communication with empathy, 2)resolving problems without criticism of each other, 3) sharing similar religious values, 4)being patient, 5) creating good and fun rituals together, 6) spending time together, and finally 7) enjoying each other sexually (talking about preferences and constantly working to make sex enjoyable for each other). These are a few ideas. You will notice that sex is only one of the things that can keep your spouse's eyes from wandering. If you two can do these things throughout your marriage I believe you will have a better chance of making your marriage last. However, remember it takes two people, you cannot do it by yourself. I wish you the best!
