Sexless in a Christian Man’s Marriage

It is my opinion that sex is a gift from God to be shared between husband and wife.

It is also my opinion that sex is a gift that a man gives to a woman, a gift that shows his love, affection, pride, and respect for his woman.

As Christians, most of us are familiar with this quote from the bible.

“Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.”

—Ephesians 5:22-33

Most Christian men in a sexless marriage are familiar with the first passage quoted above. They see that their wife is not being affectionate, loving and sexual with them, and they feel that she is failing to obey the will of the Lord. She is failing to submit to her husband and the marriage.

However, these men do not seem to put as much stock in the second passage. The Lord commands men to be leaders for their families. They are commanded to love their wives even as they love themselves. How many men can claim to be living up to this passage in our modern society?

When a man finds himself in a marriage where his wife is unaffectionate, unloving, and seldom, if ever sexual, it is not that she is simply being disobedient. She no longer views her husband as the “leader” of their marriage. She no longer views sex with her husband as the “gift” that God intended it to be.

I know what you are thinking; today’s women do not want to be “led”. They feel resentful, controlled, mistreated, abused, and valued as less than men. Today’s society does not look fondly on a man taking power over a woman in any way. Do not misunderstand me or the verses that I quoted above. A woman is, and should be treated as an equal to man. However, even among equals there is always a leader, and in marriage, God intends for the man to be that leader.

If you were to ask any woman, she would readily tell you that she wants to be regarded as equal in value to any man. She wants her voice and her opinions to count for as much as a man. However, these same women would also express that they need to have a strong man in their lives. They need a man that can bring out the best in them. They need a man who can ignite their sexual desires. A woman wants her man to “lead” her and their family to life’s greater purpose.

The challenge for men is to provide leadership for their wife and family in a way that is loving and respectful.

Now you may be wondering what this has to do with affection and sex.

Every man is hard wired for sex, just as every woman is. But we are not designed to think the same way. Men use their mind and logic to guide them through life, where women are guided more by their emotions. A woman needs to be emotionally inspired to desire sex; a man needs nothing more than a mental vision to desire sexual activity. Add to that, the masculine and feminine trait that inspires or displaces sexual energy between men and women and it becomes even clearer why a man must take the lead in his marriage and especially when it comes to sexuality.

When a woman loses her affection and sexual desire for her husband, it is most likely because her husband no longer inspires in her the feelings about herself that she needs to have in order to be sexual.

To put it another way; a woman will only be inspired to feel sexual when she feels that she is loved and respected by a quality man who is willing to be the masculine leader in her life.

A man that inspires a woman’s sexuality is a man of values, values based on his conviction of being the man that God wanted him to be, his own belief in himself, his purpose, and his vision of what’s best for him, his wife, his family, and his vision of their future together.

A quality man knows what his wife wants, needs, and desires from life. He is a man that she can trust to “lead” her to the best life for herself, and her family. When he is this man, she will not only follow him, she will open herself up to him emotionally, spiritually, and sexually. He will not have to ask, beg, or manipulate his woman. She will surrender into his open arms with love and enthusiasm.

The marterials offered on my web site are a step by step guide to becoming the quality man that God wants us to be; a leader, and a man that will inspire the best in his wife, children, and every person in his life. The Husband Book describes the man that we should all strive to be.

The purchase of this book will also give you unlimited access to an on line forum that the author and many other men are there to support, guide, and mentor you along. These high quality men will guide you through the process of growing into the masculine strength that God has envisioned for you. They will answer any questions that you may have and walk you step by step through any situations that will arise as you travel down the path to the happy, affectionate, loving marriage that we all desire.

This program will bring you closer to God, yourself, your wife, and your family. Again, it will teach you to be a man that inspires the best from everyone in your life; it will bring out the passion that you desire from your wife.

In closing, I leave you with this quote from,   Proverbs 1:5 —

“Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. Let those with understanding receive guidance”

I wish you the best on your journey.

It’s my belief that there is no marriage problem that cannot be solved by the Husband.

It is the husband’s responsibility to provide whatever is required to make his wife and family feel loved, cherished, respected, honored, and provided for, Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
