In marriage, the body of the husband belongs to the wife and vice versa (1 Corinthians 7:1-5). We are not expected to refrain our bodies from each other but rather to ensure that there is a total union in the body. It is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about because the blessing of God is fully on the marriage bed and He created sex, among other things for your enjoyment as husband and wife. This is a fundamental part of marriage and should be taken seriously. In actual fact, being inconsistent with your sex life, gives room to the devices of the devil. When a husband and wife are truly united in the body, they are fully ready and able to overcome all sorts of temptations from outside. The number of marriages that have experienced crises because of this is innumerable. You find the unsatisfied spouse indulging in filthy things such as pornography, masturbation, drinking to drown his/her sorrows away, and any other destructive activity available that they believe will make up for the lack of physical intimacy. Unless there are major reasons for abstaining (medical, fasting, as agreed by husband and wife, etc), sex should be as often as possible, no matter how busy your schedule is. Don’t overlook this area for any reason because once the enemy finds an opportunity to destroy any marriage, he takes it. Remember, the scriptures tell husbands and wives not to refrain for too long so that the enemy does not tempt us due to our inconsistency.Your marriage bed is important to God, therefore you must guard it jealously. As you do what is required, the devices of the enemy concerning your marriage will be disappointed.
