Intimate relationships play a central role in the overall human experience.  Humans have a general desire to belong and to love which is usually satisfied within an intimate relationship.  Intimate relationships involve the physical and sexual attraction by one person to another, liking and loving, romantic feelings and sexual relationships, as well as the seeking of a mate and emotional and personal support from. http://en.wikipedia.org
Intimacy generally refers to the feeling of being in a close personal association and belonging together. Are you and your spouse close? Have you drifted apart? What is hindering the spark and romance that once use to be? Being intimate is not all about being sexual. But also being close to each other, connecting, spending one on one quality time...away from the computer, cell phones, Ipads, etc., getting to know one another on a deeper level. Remember, just like our relationship with God, there is always something new you can learn about your spouse.
Other than hormonal changes, one might find themselves lacking in the romance department. Could it be that infidelity has turned your marriage upside down? Or maybe it's the children, toxic friendships, broken trust, financial strain, over-time at work or maybe you have become straight up lazy. If trust has become an issue for you in your marriage, now is the time to work on rebuilding, restoring and reclaiming it. Truth is, it's hard to be intimate with someone you don't like or hardly trust. During the sexual act, your body is there, going through the motion but emotionally you are not. Confidence and companionship are necessary.
