Quoting Quiverfull: An Interpersonal Space?

Quoting Quiverfull: An Interpersonal Space? February 26, 2014

by Ruth Schwenk from The Time Warp Wife – 2 Ways Every Wife Should Pursue Her Husband

Affection – Your husband wants to know he is desired. It’s not true that all he cares about is sex. He certainly cares about it, but he also wants to be wanted. Be a wife who initiates physical contact.

In Five Aspects of Woman, Barbara K.Mouser points out that this is a Biblical picture of wedded love, with man and wife. With marriage, a woman’s body becomes an interpersonal space, a place of fellowship for two people. Just as a virgin should guard the domain of her body, the wife should tend it and share it with her husband.
