Poet Robert Browning penned the phrase, “Grow old with me! The best is yet to be. The last of life, for which the first was made.” As we mature we learn that intimacy is far more complex and comprehensive than just sex. Intimacy can be nurtured and grown, like a potted flower. It can also be left to die on the vine.
A most common reflection of couples who failed to water and nurture the flower, is the divorce that occurs when the last child leaves for college ~ like closing the cover after the last page of a bad book. This chapter is a discussion about building and nurturing intimacy, throughout all the years of marriage, so that it grows deeper and more precious and provides its fruit for a lifetime.
This article is a chapter of a course, so it provides break-points to ponder various issues. The reader will be enriched if they take time to think about and possibly even journal their responses to the questions raised at these breakpoints.
