If you’ve ever wondered why God says not to have sex before we are married, Kiss Me Again: Restoring Lost Intimacy In Marriage, by Barbara Wilson, answers your question, and it addresses all the obstacles women face when they decide not to wait for marriage before they have their first sexual experience. In Song of Songs 2:7, we are instructed not to “awaken love until the time is right”. Why? Because there is an actual Invisible Bond that forms when two people share a sexual encounter.
The whole gist of the book is why women, who couldn’t resist sex before they were married, now that they have tied the knot, don’t want to anymore. It talks about why that happens and what to do about it. The thing that struck me the most is the fact that there is an actual reason for it. It is something that is fixable, women don’t have to live that way.
She uses actual real-life examples. Kiss Me Again addresses different problems or obstacles that women face in their sexual relationship with their husbands and gives steps for women to follow in order to allow God to begin the healing process.
It talks about the bonds that occur when two people have sex and how it affects the marriage later on. It isn’t just an emotional bond, it is a chemical bond that can bring serious, unneeded, baggage into a marriage.
No matter what is in your sexual past, God can heal your wounds and restore you marriage. God can heal the sexual issues you are struggling with in marriage. He can reignite your desire and deepen your emotional bond with your husband. (Barbara Wilson)
I recommend this book for anyone who has the desire for a deeper “physical and emotional closeness with their mates.”
