Hi! I'm new to the board (just discovered it today) and thought it might be a good place to ask for a little advice from those of you who've been there.
I've been married for almost 3 months now and overall it has been wonderful. We are, however, having a difficult time transitioning from "waiting" until marriage to actually being married. A quick background - he and I dated for awhile in college when neither of us were concerned about faith. So it was difficult when we got back together and our faith was much stronger and we wanted to do the right thing. We were not successful in the beginning and found that in order to keep things from going too far we would have to pretty much stop things at kissing. I thought once we were married all of those physical feelings of desire would return, but they just haven't. We have talked about it and he's admitted that the transition is hard, and I feel bad that my level of desire isn't greater. While our libidos may never be the same, I am hoping that our intimate relationship will improve.
If you have any suggestions or pieces of advice from your own experience, they would be greatly appreciated! TIA
