True romance follows God s design for marriage and for us as created beings.
Romance isn t a tough concept to sell. It s fun. It makes us feel good. It helps us forget, at least for a little while, the hassles of work, the stresses of rearing children, and the drudgery of everyday life. It brings couples closer. Despite all of this, though, romance often falls to the bottom of spouses priority lists.
Several factors contribute to the sensual shortfall, including lack of time, low energy, unresolved conflicts, and poor communication. But another element might be missing for many couples as well a godly perspective on sexuality. Why did God create us male and female? What does it mean for the two to become one flesh? How does the union of bodies nurture the soul? We ll begin to explore each of these questions in this study.
