"Marriage Saving Sex"
That was the headline that caught my eye on the Cookie magazine that showed up in my mailbox today. I thought perhaps there would be some Cosmo-type advice on the perfect position to spice things up, but instead the moral of the story was that, as parents, ANY sex can be marriage saving. Too this, I say, "DUH!" Thanks for the enlightenment, Mrs. Journalist/mom. I guess after a baby it is easier to fall asleep most nights than it is to get lucky.... but it seems like a no-brainer that if you have sex with your husband on a regular basis it will make everyone in the family happier. Whether you call it "releasing the poison" (which is one of our favorite euphemisms), gettin' it on, or just plain sex.... it is the best way to cut tension, feel connected to your spouse, and feel like a woman (not just a mom). Admittedly, it is a lot easier to get in the mood if you hire a babysitter to take care of the bedtime routine, but it will be worth every penny and more.
