Sexually Satisfying Marriage Overcoming the Challenges of the Sexual History

The institution of marriage is meant to be a lifelong bond between two people. One of the biggest problems in a marriage is a lack of satisfying sex with your partner. The reasons that a couple does not have a satisfying sex life are as unique and varied as the individuals that make the marriage bond. The beliefs, values, and experiences of two sexual beings are brought together in marriage. What can be more personal than an individual‘s sexual history? Acceptance, understanding, and moving away from the demons of the past and into the present are great gifts for an individual and for a married couple. This paper shall explore the effects of the sexual education of youth, the communication barriers of the sexual needs of married couples, and methods to overcome the challenges in getting the most out of a sexually satisfying marriage.
