Intimacy

  1. 1. Rays of Light To Keep Your Marriage Bright<br />Intimacy<br />“Into You I See”<br />
  2. 2. Some Starting Considerations<br />Seven Stages of Marriage<br />Passion: This is the honeymoon stage, when romance and intense attraction bond a couple together. However, by within two years most couples have usually lost their initial magic.<br />Realization: In this stage, the honeymoon ends, and more real vision of the rest of your life together begins.<br />Rebellion: She misses her friends; he misses his cool toys. She wants to travel and he wants to play weekend football. The power straggle has started!<br />
  3. 3. 7 Stages (cont.)<br />Cooperation: marriage takes on a businesslike tone. Set aside all that love and emotion and personal-realization stuff: There are bills to be paid, and children to be raised! Research shows that marriage takes a nosedive when a baby arrives.<br />Reunion: Research shows if you have children, the cooperation stage often last 10-20 years—then suddenly, it is gone. As a result, there is a need for couple to reintroduce themselves to one another! Lovers and friends again…<br />
  4. 4. Stages: Passion, Realization, Rebellion, Cooperation, Reunion…<br />Explosion: Jobs loss, major health problems, a move to a new city, financial troubles, illness or death of a parent…Life shocking events that can affect you relationship for a day, a year, or the rest of your lives. Can happen at any time, but 40s and 50s.<br />Completion: It is no coincidence: lots of surveys find that marital happiness soars after several decades of a shared life. In this stage knowing one another is not merely about toleration each other’s habits, quirks and needs. Its know and deeply loving and the payoff is great!<br />
