I found a short article online titled "5 Things a Couple should do" and 3rd breakdown struck me.
3. Share a guilty pleasure.
A lot of couples have a favorite show or other fun secret little indulgences. As a couple, I don’t think my husband and I share one and quite frankly I feel that it is because we fall into the “opposites attract” end of the spectrum. If laughing and enjoying ice cold beer and “extra volcano” buffalo wings together doesn’t count, we’ll have to work on this one..
Sex wasn't mentioned here but, the caption kind of reminded me of a conversation i got into with my colleagues during our usual hangout sessions. I remember we were talking about God and the "weird" things people ask of him. Some of the things listed didn't seem so off to me. So i decided to ask a question; i started by saying "Since it is not right to sleep with my partner before marriage, how do i know that he can actually do what his mates do behind closed doors?". I further said that if i am to pray for a man, that will definitely be in the list. My colleagues almost chopped me raw and cracked my bones join.
But think about it... If the Bible says in 1 Peter 5:7, " Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you", while shouldn't i be open with God about all that concerns me? I think this is the reason Christianity seems so uptight and unrealistic to many. There are just too many restrictions created by man. Who says God only wants to hear about how beautiful and holy He is and nothing about you? Doesn't that make Him come across as selfish? The verse above explains that He cares about even the things i consider irrelevant for him to know. Sex wasn't invented by man but by God for Christ sakes! If we cannot talk to God and even our parents about this, biko nu, whom can we then talk to? No wonder the act is abused.
What do you think? Please lemme reiterate the use of the comment option below. Thank you
