It shortly after my wedding day that I had a conversation with a woman from my church that went a little something like this:
Truth was, my man and I most certainly snuggled up on the couch but there wasn't any making out. We didn't want to miss the movie! Now, reality is: some people are movie watchers and some people are maker-outers. That just is what it is (which are you??) but the issue was that all of a sudden I felt like there was an expectation of what Dave and I SHOULD be doing at this stage in our relationship. And those types of "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" raced through my head constantly in the early stages of our marriage- adding quite a bit of stress.
