Please subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea where I talk about many things related to marriage. This is a 4M channel: for Mature Marriage-Minded Men. Today I want to talk about if an older couple can still have romantic love. Is good sex just for the young? Make no mistake about it, when you marry, sex is an obligation. It is also a great pleasure and gift a husband and wife give to each other. Here is a comment from the article that I will link in the description box.
“Everlasting and sexually supercharged romantic love is a myth. It exists only for Disney princesses.”
Of course, no one is supercharged romantically for the duration of their life or functionally. Why not get the getting while the getting is good? That’s one of the benefits of marriage. Why even bring up that “everlasting and sexually supercharged romantic love is a myth”? Yes, it is eventually. Everything in the physical realm for all of us is in decline. Supercharged romantic love is a myth in general but the younger you are, the more supercharged it may be. Isn’t that a sensible time to get married?
Ahh you may say, what do 18-year-olds know about love and responsibility? Probably not much, they can be taught that and they can pick that up in marriage, valid marriage. If all of us waited until we knew everything and were so-called perfectly prepared for something, we might run out of time. I hadn’t had a relationship in forever. I married my wife in less than eight weeks and committed before even meeting her in person. We have been married for six years. I knew some things, but still had to have a place to put to use what I learned about marriage, which was marriage.
Listen to the podcast for more thoughts on supercharged romance.
