Editor’s note: Now BGR says that marriage counselors are tough enough on ladies that refuse sex with their husbands. I wonder if any of these whining guys has ever tried any self-improvement, actually asked their wives if there was something that they could be doing to make sex happen more frequently. It could be something as simple as taking care of the children alone one night a week so she can have some ‘me’ time, or helping out more. Why this go straight to bring her up in front of the pastor, threaten divorce and demand sex.
As you pointed out often times counselors either give bad advice about this or they are not hard enough on the woman and usually tend to make an unending list of excuses for her sexual denial.
This is why we must be as the Bereans who “searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so”(Acts 17:11).
There are still Churches(especially among the Baptist denomination that I am a part of) that will take a hard stand on this in marital counseling. But even in those churches there are few who would condone a man divorcing his wife over the sin of sexual refusal. This is because most Churches see only two Biblical reasons for divorce – adultery and abandonment.
