[From Julie] Here it is folks. The moment you’ve all been waiting for, at least the husbands anyway. The Seven Day Challenge is this; for the next seven days you and your spouse agree to make your sexually intimacy a priority and simply have sex every day. Feel free to engage more than once a day if you want to just don’t tell anyone about it (the rest of us might get jealous.) If you would describe your marriage as happy/good than this is a challenge for you. If you would describe your marriage as in need of a little rejuvination or a new spark this challenge is for you too. This is the first seven day challenge and in the future when you see the icon you and your spouse will know that another challenge is underway, so jump on board.
No excuses. No headaches, backaches, sideaches, too tired, too hungry, too cranky, too hot, too cold, etc. For all you shift workers, I know this is difficult but it’ll be worth it. I know that for some this will be difficult due to current circumstances in your life right now but it will be worth the effort to draw physically closer together in some way. I’m afraid that for most couples the intimacy in your marriage is relegated to the back burner. This is your opportunity to be deliberate about your spouse’s needs and make it a priority and if you do it right it’ll be fun.
The idea is to draw closer as a couple. Take seriously your role as your spouse’s one and only lover and love your spouse well. Even if you have difficulty imagining being together that frequently because you are satisfied being a once or twice a week couple (or whatever you consider normal for you), this challenge can help make your connection stronger. This exercise will also hopefully build more of an appetite for intimacy with your spouse, which can’t be a bad thing. I’ll bet this will also encourage more conversation between the two of you about your needs and desires in the bedroom. Go out on a limb and try this together. Just try it and see what happens.
