Hi, I'm David Simonsen with I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist in the Seattle area. Now, one of the things that I found as I work with married couples is that there is no time for intimacy. And I'm just not talking about sex; I'm talking about time to sit down and connect with one another. In the society today, you know, there's kids, there's soccer, there's social media, there's work, there's parties that you need to attend and so relationships with your significant other or your spouse often get lost and thrown on the wayside. And if you don't pay attention to your relationship, what's going to happen is you're going to end up divorced or separated and no one wants that. So, there are several ways to create intimacy in your marriage. One of the ways is to schedule a time. Now, for guys that's easy. Guys tend to be microwaves, we turn on and off. And I'm talking about sexual intimacy. Women tend to be like Crock-Pots and takes a little bit slower to warm up and this is generally speaking again. So, scheduling may work for you, it may not work for some. But, making a specific time where you and your spouse can connect with one another is going to be important. Now, it's going to be really important for the wife to see that the husband's interested in that and the, and the more that you're interested in that husband, the more your wife is going to give, get; the more that you're interested in that husband, the more your wife is going to give you what you want; sex. And so, that's something that should be really important to men and women.
