Once upon a time, one night past 8pm, a Betty Lou had put her children to bed. Her husband, Bob, wasn’t home yet, but she was ready to knock out herself after a long day. The exhausted Mama then, went straight her bed and comfortably, with all the space to herself, she fell fast asleep!
In literally no time, Bob arrived. He sneaked over to the cabinets and quietly pulled out some aspirin. The very thoughtful, considerate husband approached his Wife’s bedside and suddenly shoved the aspirin into her mouth!
“PFFT! Blahh! What the- What is this, what the heck are you doing??” asked the startled, yet annoyed Wife.
To which Bob replied, as a matter of a fact: “Your aspirin dear, for you headache…?”,
“What headache? I’m fine! I don’t need this”, she reproached.
With a sneaky smile, he informs her: “Ah, well good then. That’s just what I needed to hear!’
Get it? 😉😉

Do you want to know the ultimate benefit of conducing your relationship with this degree of intimacy after having started a family?
You are setting an example to your children. You are exposing what true love is supposed to look like. You teach them what to look for or establish in a future relationship. You are creating harmony in your family, because when children see affectionate parents that care for each other, it gives them a sense of security and happiness, and a happy marriage equals a happy home, and that, is what our children ultimately need.
