I’ve been married for seven mostly very happy years. But it turns out I’ve been doing this whole marriage thing wrong.
According to a UK blogger, if you want to maintain a state of wedded bliss, you need to have sex within an hour of getting home.
I know, right? I almost died laughing too. It's hard enough to get a meal on the table in the evening, let alone put aside time for a quickie.
Writer Natasha Bell’s reasoning behind her bold advice is that her hubby is often away. When he gets home from a work trip, it is often a competition to see who is more exhausted. Instead of re-launching their relationship on a bitter footing, they set a rule together that they have to get jiggy with it straight away when he gets home. The result from this expectation is that having sex puts Natasha and her husband in a better mood and they can start operating seamlessly again as a couple.
Natasha argues that this works because it gives sex a deadline, adding it to the to-do list. She categorises sex as a chore that’s necessary to keep her partnership together. She explains that no, it’s not romantic, but it’s more romantic than splitting up because you have put everything ahead of enjoying freaky time together.
WATCH to see the moment people knew their partner was the one. When did you know?
When I saw the headline for this article I wanted to call bullsh*t straight away. Who has the inclination for a horizontal tango within an hour of walking in the door? If my hubby and I even tried that move we’d be interrupted by a confused toddler who doesn’t understand why he’s not invited to jump on the bed.
