Solving a Hundred Problems in Marriage

While John Piper was preaching on the issue of sexual relations in marriage, he said something that is so simple yet profound:

If it is the joy of each to make the other happy, a hundred problems will be solved.

Wives, it is not always the case, but often, that your husband wants sexual relations more often than you do. Martin Luther said he found twice a week to be ample protection from the tempter. I don’t know if Katie was up for it every time or not. But if you’re not, give it anyway. I do not say to you husbands, “Take it anyway.” In fact, for her sake you may go without. The goal is to outdo one another in giving what the other wants. Both of you, make it your aim to satisfy each other as fully as possible.
