Hello - thought it was time to introduce myself, as I’ve spent the last couple of weeks gradually reading through all of the threads on this board. After all that reading, I feel like I know some of you pretty well :D and am thankful for the vulnerability, Biblical and practical wisdom, and spirit of support found here. I found the site through a circuitous tour of Christian marriage and sex positive blogs for wives.

DH and I have been married almost 30 years, all of those in full-time ministry, both in overseas missions work and in a local church context. I also work outside our church, in executive leadership in a demanding secular business. We have late teen and early adult children.

We have a good marriage and love each other deeply but over the years our marriage bed has often been an area of misunderstanding and hurt. I’m the higher drive spouse. I’m not sure it’s been that way for all of our marriage, but definitely is now.

We’ll see if/when I post, but wanted to let you all know I am thankful to have found this group. To God be all glory.

Wow, I am impressed if you read through every thread!!! Welcome, glad you are here! :wave
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, to find comfort, to survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years... and then she did something new.

Welcome to TMB. Count me in the impressed crowd if you've read every thread. That's a lot of work, especially parsing through some of the old QNA stuff where the comments got carried over but aren't necessarily clearly connected to a given post!

Looking forward to your contributions. 8-)
