Spiritual intimacy

Couple reading bible

Spiritual intimacy is something that most couples do not share.

Our spirituality is significant to our personal growth and can be a very strong bond in which the two of you can grow and share over your lifetime together.

5 Ways to experience spiritual intimacy:

  1. Discuss together how you feel about religion and spirituality.
  2. Together, define your core beliefs and desires from a spiritual perspective.
  3. Share your insights and inspirations for your personal and spiritual growth.
  4. Experience a different religious or spiritual perspective together and discuss what you liked or did not like.
  5. Devote one day per week to indulge your senses in nature together.

My husband and I talk all the time. It's really important to stay friends and stay connected via conversations.

I like the idea of spicing up our physical intimacy. It's nice the article states to make 20 non ual touches to your partner. I like that it's not solely focused on . Physical intimacy is so much more than just that.

Social intimacy is important for sure. My husband used to always hold my hand, always. Now that we're married, it's died down haha, but if I remind him or just take initiative and grab his, he likes that.

I think having intellectual intimacy is so important. It's always nice to talk about dreams and ambitions together. Normally that's something talked about often when you're first dating, so it shouldn't end just because you're married now.
