The Secret To A Happy Marriage

I have seen so many articles on the Internet professing to know The Secret To A Happy MarriageA lot of the time, the tips in those damn articles make absolutely no sense. I decided, after a wonderful conversation with Sarah, to post about my secret to a happy marriage…


Sex. Just, sex. Have sex. A lot. Why? Because being intimate is important. The easiest way that we humans interact with one another is through physical contact. Bringing your spouse pleasure, often, and in turn getting pleasured yourself…well, everyone’s happy!

Sure, it’s still important to communicate and meet each others’ other needs, for sure. But sex is a big one, one that a lot of us don’t really make time for. I mean, we’re married. We have kids. We’re tired.

Do you fight more with your spouse when you don’t have sex as much? I know we fight more. Why? Because we lose “touch” with one another. Literally.

Touching is important in marriage. Find excuses to make out randomly. Find excuses to hold each other. Make love, and you won’t make war. It seriously works. Even if you’re in the middle of a fight, jump on up to the bedroom (or wherever your location of choice is) and ride the skin flute. Or, you know, whatever your preference is.

  1. Dude, sex is totally the answer. Just lay there. LOL!

  2. There are a lot of components to a happy marriage, and I agree that sex is a very important one. I strongly believe that physical intimacy and emotional intimacy go hand in hand….and that when you’re connecting with your partner on a physical level, it’s a whole lot easier to show them understanding, love and compassion in other areas.

  4. Haha, when Alex and I were first married, we would fight about the fact that we had sex at least once a day. He complained I was insatiable. Then we moved to the south where it’s hot and I’m miserable and now he complains that we don’t have sex nearly enough anymore.

    There is a very delicate balance, I believe.
