It was the fall of 2008 and our marriage was at a crossroads. We’d been married for 11 years, had a 2 and a 5 year old and felt more like roommates than lovers.
IF (and that's a big if) we had sex it felt more like a quick transaction than anything romantic. When we did have sex, each encounter looked just like the one before, there was no variety, no creativity, no passion, no excitement.
As we were getting ready for bed one night, Tony suggested…
"What if we had sex for 60 days in a row?"
I immediately said “NO!”
But the seed had been planted.
This was how the first SEX challenge began.
Honestly, the first time we started a sex challenge there was the thought that this is JUST ABOUT SEX but discovered it wasn't at all.
As we made our marriage and each other a priority, the connection in the bedroom carried into every area of our relationship. We found that we were talking about things we hadn’t discussed in years. We were choosing not to fight because we knew that would make it harder to have sex later. We found ourselves helping each other out around the house because that would give us more time with each other.
What started out as a sex challenge became the line in the sand moment that completely TRANSFORMED our marriage.
