Some Christian married couples secretly live with frustration and shame because their sexual relationship isn't meeting their needs or expectations. Unfortunately, many of these couples do not look beyond the mechanics of sexual activity to recognize that a satisfying sex life happens through the intentional pursuit of living out God's design for sexual intimacy. Psychologist Dr. Juli Slattery describes how this is done in this informative discussion with Jim Daly and John Fuller. Listen in as she defines "contractual love" and "covenant love," explaining why couples should abandon the former and cultivate the latter. She outlines the four pillars of covenant love (faithfulness, sacrifice, "intimate knowing," and celebration) and offers valuable insights that she and her husband have gained in overcoming their own struggles to experience true and meaningful intimacy.
