I wanted to post this article because it’s simply one of the best I’ve ever read on intimacy in relationships. After my last post, I thought this would be an appropriate follow-up. It’s empowering, informational, and, admittedly, rather long. So, read it in a few sittings if you must, but, by all means, read it. I’ve read numerous articles and books on relational intimacy, and this ranks in the top 3. I’ll tell you this: It really helped me acquire some new language around my own expectations, my thoughts and feelings, and how to discuss them in terms of conflict resolution with my husband. The result? We had a great discussion as well as a bit of a breakthrough! So, read it!!!
