Happily Ever After is Just the Beginning – Yes, Intimacy is About Sex; But Also So Much More

When most people hear the word “intimacy”, they automatically think “SEX”. Unfortunately, that is a very limiting interpretation of the word, and the behavior. Intimacy is about knowing and being known by another. It can be physical, yes. But it can also be emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. The deepest intimacy, and what most of us want in our marriages, encompasses all of these areas. Dr. Mariana Bockarova, author and researcher at the University of Toronto, identifies the factors that define real intimacy and suggests ways you can have more of it in your marriage.
