Platonic Marriage: “Once you’ve had children, romantic intimacy is not so important anymore.”

"I'll Have What She's Having" — Meg Ryan
by Mimi Stuart, Live the you Desire

So what I really meant was…

“A long-term passionate marriage is more enjoyable and fulfilling than a platonic one. Our relationship and lives will be richer if we keep the passion and sensuality alive.”

If you’re with someone who doesn’t realize how important romantic intimacy is to sustaining a long-term passionate marriage, it’s vital that you have frank discussions together. Let your partner know that it’s important to you to be in a relationship with someone who desires you and who wants to continue to have a passionate relationship.
