8 steps to confront your wife’s sexual refusal.

The advice I am about to give you Christian husband will require courage. The advice I am about to give you will require you to show your wife tough love. Let me be clear on something, even if you do follow the steps below I give, this does not automatically mean you will get a change from your wife, or her repentance for her sexual immorality. And yes my friend it is sexually immoral for a wife (or husband for that matter) to deny their spouse sexually unless they have a legitimate physical or mental health grounds for doing so. Most people think of sexual immorality as only someone having sex outside marriage (pre-marital sex, adultery, incest, homosexual sex). But remember that when something is immoral, that means it is sin, and we know that sexual denial in marriage is sin, therefore it is accurate to call willful sexual denial in marriage an act of sexual immorality.

Read it all.

A pretty balanced article on a tough subject. I watched a good friend suffer this abuse by his Christian wife for many years before he finally left. My guess is it happens a lot. And yes, it happens both ways. The fact that St. Paul even had to cover the topic suggests that too.

What the author doesn’t address is how many guys won’t go this route out of fear of losing their kids. Generally not the case were the roles reversed. A woman who dishonors him the bedroom likely dishonors him throughout the rest of the house too.
